I'm talking about the piece above.

Someone told me that he wasn't sure if the composer is Vivaldi or Albinoni, because he had two different editions of the sheet music.

I searched and found the piece by Marcello. Not by Vivaldi nor Albinoni.

Is there someone who knows who is the composer?

Looks like it's Marcello.

On IMSLP, its first publication is as part of a compilation of concerti for Oboe by various composers, published in 1716, and the adagio you're talking about is in there, as "Concerto II" with the caption, "del Sig. Alexandro Marcello".

Not quite sure what you're asking. The YT video clearly says it's the Adagio from the Oboe Concerto in D Minor, by Alessandro Marcello. I've never heard of him, but there's a short Wikipedia article on him that says this is his best-known work.

It's by Allesandro Marcello, Bach made a keyboard transcription of this piece and it's credited in the Very title of the piece to Marcello. It's BWV 974. The "adagio" starts at 2:20

here's another performance of just the adagio

(The confusion might be because if you catalog the publication, it might not pick up that it's a compilation work. The first page lists all the composers, but the first one is Valentini, followed by Vivaldi, Albinoni, Veracini, St. Martin, MARCELLO, Rampin, Predieri".

I could see the whole thing being mistakenly attributed to Valentini simply because he goes first.)

Thank you! I just wonder how could books with sheet music list it - mistakenly - as Vivaldi's or Albinoni's. I didn't know Marcello either. I like Bach's keyboard trancription too!

Apparently, you've not read any of the threads on bad editions, nor come into contact with such.

The Bach transcription is wonderful, isn't it? I've always thought it would make a lovely recital opener.

Yes it is really! But so is the original - I love the violin sound smile
