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The present concerto for bassoon has remained unpublished and unknown until modern times, the manuscript forming part of a collection of Hummel’s unpublished manuscripts, preserved at the British Library London, and is titled: “Grand Concerto / per ill Fagotto / con 2 Violini, Viola, Violoncello e Basso / composto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

"How much money would it have cost to order a concerto for guitar and orchestra of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart?" asked Gabriel Guillén.  
Jovan Pesec answered: "No idea, but in any case, it is to late now!"

But it's never to late to start an arrangement. Jovan Pesec finished now a transcription of Mozart's famous and beautiful concert for basson and orchestra.
