The oboe da caccia is an instrument used primarily in the Baroque period and has a lower range and more mellow timbre than a traditional oboe. The warm tone of the oboe da caccia is the perfect compliment to the harpsichord that provides harmonic support. Bach's contrapuntal style shines in this piece, especially his writing for the bass register of the harpsichord, and his unique sense of melody makes each movement memorable. MC Bach Sonata For Oboe Da Caccia And Harpsichord In F Major is a wonderful example of Bach's exceptional skills, as well as a rare chance to hear a combination of instruments rarely heard outside of the composer's own time.
