Please recommend me concertos for wind instruments

(1/11) > >>

Diletante:
Good evening.

I like concertos very much, I think it's my favorite type of classical composition.

There seems to be a large repertoire for piano and violin concertos, but not so much for other instruments. So I would like you to recommend me some concertos I could check out for wind instruments.

I especially like how the oboe sounds, but feel free to recommend works for clarinet, flute, french horn, trombone or whatever.

Also, I would prefer music from Romanticism on. Feel free to recommend atonal compositions as well. And if you feel I should definitely check out a Baroque or Classical piece, please say it, too.

Thanks in advance.  :)

Boy, Tanuki - I think that you'll have to be much more specific just to limit the recommendations at first!  ;D

Wind instrument concertos and chamber music span the Baroque into the 20th century - there is just so much available - I probably own hundreds of CDs already of this music, so may be if you can 'zero in' on some of your more specific needs, we can make some recommendations -  :)

But, just to show you the 'vastness' of your request, I have the 4-CD set of Antonio Rosetti's (1750-1792) - Wind Concertos (a completely forgotten composer!) - these include oboe, clarinet, horn, & bassoon works - just wonderful!  But a small 'corner' of what I own - so, please some more specifics as to 'what' you want?  There's an abundance available -  :D

Keemun:
I don't have many recordings of concertos for wind instrument (I prefer violin, cello and piano), but I do like these:

Bach: Oboe Concerto, BWV 1059
Finzi: Clarinet Concerto, Op. 31
Mozart: Clarinet Concerto in A major, K. 622
Mozart: Oboe Concerto in C, K314
Mozart: Horn Concertos Nos. 1-4
Strauss: Oboe Concerto in D, AV144

Heh, OK, truly sorry about that. Please bear with my 'noviceness'.

How about Oboe or Horn concertos, from late romanticism or 20th century?

That'd be great.  ;)

Well, that limits my previous recommendations to one, the Strauss Oboe Concerto.  :D  But I think you would like the Finzi Clarinet Concerto as well, it's quite good.  :)
