Abstract: This project produces a new performance edition of the Concerto for Two Oboes in G Major, FWV L G9 by Johann Friedrich Fasch, appropriate for developing high school or undergraduate oboists. Also included is an overview of Fasch’s training and stylistic influences, establishing that he utilized compositional elements from the Italianate concerto and late baroque style in combination with the emerging galant style. Although his works were not published during his lifetime, he distributed manuscripts to many of his nearby colleagues employed at other courts. A surviving manuscript of the Concerto for Two Oboes in G Major, FWV L G9 in Dresden was used as the basis for the performance edition. Modern style guides and treatises by Fasch’s contemporaries were consulted to make editorial decisions. The generated edition includes a piano reduction for practical performance by modern students, as well as both edited and non-edited solo parts for reference and instruction in late baroque and transitional style practices. Fasch is an under-utilized composer of oboe repertoire and this edition adds to the available selections for students and educators of oboe.
