Johann Roman’s Concerto for Oboe D’Amore in D minor Gretchen Gettes, Cello
Sandra Lisicky, Oboe d’amore Enjoy our send-off to summer with a Celebration of Venice, including Vivaldi’s energetic and playful Cello Concerto in B minor, featuring Bach in Baltimore’s first-chair cellist Gretchen Gettes, plus “Spring, Summer, and Autumn” from Vivaldi’s Magnum Opus, Four Seasons. We will conclude the afternoon and our season with Johann Roman’s Concerto for Oboe D’Amore in D minor, featuring Sandra Lisicky. The oboe d’amore, or oboe of love, is a Baroque era instrument very similar to the oboe of today, but lower in range and more tranquil in tone quality.
