Ralph Vaughan-Williams, Oboe Concerto

Ralph Vaughan Williams wrote his Concerto in A minor for Oboe and Strings for soloist Léon Goossens in 1944. This pastoral piece is divided into three movements: Rondo Pastorale (Allegro moderato) Minuet and Musette (Allegro moderato) Scherzo (Presto - Doppio più lento - Lento - Presto) The concerto was intended to premiere at a Proms concert, but due to the threat of V1 rocket raids on London the piece was first played in Liverpool instead, on 30 September 1944 in a concert by the Liverpool Philharmonic that also included the Oboe Concerto by the soloist's brother, Eugène Goossens
