Alessandro Marcello (1684-1750)  left a hotchpotch of modest pieces for various wind instruments with strings, and would have been just another of the 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 does too.
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.
Jovan Pesec arranged the concerto fort he following instrumentation:

Guitar, Violins I, Violins II, Violas I, Violas II, Celli, Basses

Johann Nepomuk Hummel:
Concerto for Bassoon and Orchestra in F Major op. 23, arranged for Guitar by Jovan Pesec

Johann 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 “Concertmaster” for the Esterhazy court in Eisenstadt, Austria. With Mozart, Haydn and Hummel, the circle of the so called  “Old Vienese Guitar Concerti” is concluded.

The present concerto for bassoon has remained unpublished and unknown until modern times, the manuscript forming part of a collection of Hummel’s unpublished manuscripts, preserved at the British Library London, and is titled: “Grand Concerto / per ill Fagotto / con 2 Violini, Viola, Violoncello e Basso / composto del /Sigre Giov. Nep. Hummel / di Vienna”.

To optimize 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.

The first 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

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.
