forgotten hundreds of jobbing composers had it not been for J. S. Bach.
Marcello's Oboe Concerto in D minor is actually a
transcription by Bach, and once Bach takes notice, the rest of the world
Alessandro's brother Benedetto is sometimes wrongly credited as the
composer of the piece. But then Benedetto would no doubt have been happy
to take any credit he could even if he hadn't done anything to deserve
it - as well as being a composer, he was also a politician. Perhaps in
an effort to make sure Benedetto couldn't steal more limelight,
Alessandro published some pieces under the name of Eterico Stinfalico.
The arrangement of Alessandro Oboe’s Concerto in D
minor was actually is based on the edition of the Amsterdam publisher
J. Rodger’s printing No. 432 of 1716. Johann Sebastian Bach arranged
Marcello’s Oboe Concerto for unaccompanied keyboard instrument (BWV
974). The guitar voice of the present arrangement by Jovan Pesec follows
predominantly J.S. Bachs much more interesting musical arrangement.
Marcello’s original composition was written for Oboe, 2 violins, viola
and Basso continuo.

Johann Nepomuk Hummel:
Concerto for Bassoon and Orchestra in F Major op. 23, arranged for
Guitar by Jovan Pesec
Nepomuk Hummel was born in Pressburg (now Bratislava) on November 14th,
1778 and died Êin Weimar on Oktober 17th, 1837. His teachers included
Mozart und Albrechtsberger. From 1804 to 1811 he worked as

times, the manuscript forming part of a collection of Hummel’s
unpublished manuscripts, preserved at the British Library London, and is
titled: “Grand Concerto / per ill Fagotto / con 2 Violini, Viola,

this tuneful concerto for the guitar - which is written completely in
the Classical language of the eighteenth century - it was necessary to
transpose the composition from F-major to A-major. The orchestra part
was enlarged by 2 oboes and 2 horns and due to this fact, the brillance
of the solo and orchestra part has been dramatically increased.
Interestingly, we can find many phrases in the original bassoon voice
which are characteristic for the guitar. This gives the whole concerto a
sound that is typical of the classical guitar and gives the listener
the impression that the concerto was originaly writen for the guitar.
movement is in conventional form. In the heartfelt Romanza of the slow
movement, a cadenza has been added. The third and final Rondo movement,
has an easy-going subject in 6/8 time and is a beauitful contrast to the
more brillant episodes.

Joseph Haydn: Concerto
for Violoncello and Orchestra
C Major Hobb VII/1, arranged for Guitar by Jovan Pesec
The 1765 composed violoncello concerto was for a longer
period of time reputed as missing, until it was found in a hand writen
manuscript in the 1960s in the Prager National Museum. In 1962 , the
concerto was performed very successfuly with the Czechoslovakia Radio
Symphony Orchestra at the Prager Spring Concert and since then, has
enjoyed great popularity among cello concerti, eventhough the technical
requirements on the cellist are very demanding.
Impressed from a recording he heard from the cellist Mstislav
Rostropovich, guitartist Gabriel Guillén encouraged composer Jovan Pesec
to arrange this famous work for the guitar. For a long period of time
Haydn´s demanding Violoncello Concerto was considered almost unplayable,
which makes this composition even more difficult on the guitar, since
the guitarist plays, along with the melody - which was taken over from
the violoncello - an added bass line.
Gabriel Guillén was born in Maracay, Venezuela. At the
age of 8 he began to study the guitar under the Uruguayan guitarist
Mario Vidalin, who introduced him to the technique of Abel Carlevaro and
the music of Uruguay and Argentina. Later, he studied with Leopoldo
Igarza, José Gregorio Guanchez and Alberto Espinosa at the Escela
Superior de Música José Lamas.
Between 1984 and 1988 Gabriel Guillén was giving recitals in most of the
guitar festivals in Venezuela and toured Venezuela giving recitals in
about 15 cities.
In 1988 Gabriel Guillé moved to Vienna, Austria, studying under Prof.
Walter Würdinger and in Zurich, Switzerland under Prof. Konrad Ragossnig.
During his studies, Guillén gave concerts in most of the European
contries, South America, U.S.A and Japan.
After completing his studies in Europe, Gabriel Guillén received the „Merit
Award“ from the Austrian Government, the „Amigo de Venezuela“ award from
the the Venezuela Postiva and the „Honors Award from the Rotary Club
Caracas-Avila. He is now an internationaly acclaimed artist, who teaches
at the Joseph Haydn Konservatorium in Eisenstadt, Austria, gives master
classes and concerts in more than 25 counrties of the world. A
co-operation between Gabriel Guillén and Jovan Pesec was started in 1999
and Gabriel Guillén being one of Jovan Pesec´s most avid supporters. His
records are published by Philips and records.v4m (Austria).
12 sonatas of Antonio Soler will be arranged by Jovan Pesec.
The project is a co-operation between Gabriel Guillén and
Jovan Pesec and the studio.v4m in Vienna.and will be
published next year in a special edition. The recording
of the sonatas (artist Gabriel Guillén) will start soon. The work
will be finished at the end of the first quarter of 2006.
