Extra Information
  • Originally intended to be published together with the 8 Overtures in 8 Parts, Op.7. Walsh apparently saw the advantage of having 2 different publications instead of the single one of 14 works by the time they were actually issued.
    No.4 - 6 are also known as oboe concertos.
