Concerto for Oboe d’amore, I: Allegro

All that celebrating yesterday… it was a beautiful anniversary day with Sweety, reminiscing over photos, memories and music shared between us, and with friends and family that connected with us through the day and today.

I shared our processional music yesterday here on the blog, so it made sense that today, I’d share the recessional music. Sweety and I both had a tough time remembering it… maybe because of the depth of emotion in the ceremony, by the end of it, we were a little oblivious to the music we joyously walked out to and, well, it has been 11 years…

Anyway, the wedding program offered an imprecise title of a piece by Johann Sebastian Bach, so I searched through many before finding what we believe was the movement and version played. How could we not know for sure?! There was no evidence in my Apple Music library either, which is strange. Maybe the music came straight from the heavens…

Anyway, with a reasonable level of confidence, I offer this piece: the first movement, the Allegro, from the Concerto for Oboe d’amore, BWV 1055R. There are not many shareable versions of this particular movement, and this one is played a touch faster than the version we think we used. But it works. It’s a joyful piece.

Now you know a little about why this is my song of the day for today. Thanks for joining me here, and please enjoy.

Here’s the audio for the song from a version played by Ironwood, an early music ensemble, featuring Diana Doherty, oboist.
