4. Oboe Concerto in C major
Mozart captures the character of the oboe perfectly in his symphonies, so it’s surprising that this is his only oboe concerto. The flighty melodies in the fast movements are well suited to the instrument, but it’s also been reworked as a concerto in D major for the flute.
