When display of virtuosity is in the hands of an oboist of such confirmed talent as László Hadady, the auspices are good

It is always an interesting adventure to discover a repertory we ignore or know badly. Transcription, as these concertos for oboe remind us, has always been a recurrent theme in music literature. In the baroque concept it was natural for the virtuosity of one instrument to become that of another, gaining new perspectives in the process of exchange.
When this display of virtuosity is in the hands of an oboist of such confirmed talent as László Hadady - I have often witnessed his exceptional qualities since we've worked together for many years - the auspices are good. For the concertos we don't know, he lets us discover them through his assured guidance. For those we know, he lets us take pleasure in rediscovering them through his interpretative artistry. (Pierre Boulez - Paris, October 2003)
The way the oboe concertos on this disc came into being is quite unique, not only in Bach's oeuvre, but in also in respect of the whole of European music history. Philologically speaking, the five concertos do not actually exist; none of them can be found in the catalogue of Bach's works, since neither a composer's manuscript nor any other source refers to them as oboe concertos. Today's listener knows them all as harpsichord concertos; these concertos have been reconstructed by modern philology, based on the assumption that Bach's harpsichord concertos are transcriptions of concertos in which the solo part was played by a melodic instrument.
