This Violin Concerto's Beautiful 'Oboe' Solo

Johannes Brahms [1833 - 1897]
The beautiful slow movement of  Johannes Brahms Violin Concerto in D Major is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful movements of any concerto.

While this is a violin concerto, there is a wonderful Oboe solo of the gorgeous main theme that begins the concerto's second movement, before the entrance of the solo violin.  I have a feeling Oboe players relish to play this solo part for their symphonies.  I also have a feeling this is one of the favorite concertos of violin virtuosos to solo in.

Please turn up the volume, relax, and listen to this beautiful moving music of Johannes Brahms.
