Baroque. This concerto, originally for oboe, is written in four movements (slow-fast-slow-fast). The piece is remarkably well-suited for performance by brass instruments due, in large part, to Handel's expert writing for oboe, which infused the work withidiomatic wind figures throughout each movement. -the publisher

The original oboe parts are dispersed around the ensemble with the organ performing the majority of the technical string parts. -the publisher (score sample pages)
