Oboe Concerto (Mozart)

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart‘s Oboe Concerto in C major, K. 314 (271k), was composed in the spring or summer of 1777, for the oboistGiuseppe Ferlendis (1755–1802) from Bergamo. In 1778, Mozart re-worked it as a concerto for flute in D major.[1] The concerto is a widely studied piece for both instruments and is one of the most important concertos in the oboe repertoire.[2]
