About

Johann Baptist Vanhal (1739-1813) was a very productive composer and yet we merely know one oboe, one clarinet and two bassoon concerts. This compact disc combines those three “unica” along with one of his three bassoon concertos. Born in Bohemia he found his field of activity in Vienna, where he became a highly appreciated composer violinist and teacher. In his youth he not only learned to play the violin but also several wind instruments, which probably explains his predilection for so many solo parts for woodwind instruments in his concertos. His symphonies are full of passages composed for woodwindplayers (e.g. oboe) accompanied by the orchestra. He produced this also in the slow parts of his Clarinet Concerto, where the strings accompany the solo clarinet. Although sometimes described as a not very original composer he shows a special liking for experimenting with unusual tone colours and exceptional combinations.
