I found this moving … and would wait until evening to post, but it does end with the request for morning, so I’m using that as my excuse to post now. (You might have to turn up the volume … I did.)

This translation was provided by Jennifer Runner:
Already the sun is being hidden,
The moonlight is being stolen.
Who hides the sun from us,
Who steals the moonlight?
God hides the sun from us,
The Creator* steals the moonlight.
Let the blessed morning come,
Let the sun rise over the forest.
I sing, the table bends* down,
Behind the house the oak bends,
Beside the well the birch bends,
Above the garden the bird’s perch bends.
Joy is heard all the way to Hiiumaa,
The glow all the way to Courland*,
Pleasure across our land.
Let the blessed morning come,
The sun rise over the forest.?

I used to play this a lot when I was younger … I just love playing Telemann: I think he sits well for oboe fingers. I confess, though, that I never memorized it.

I love Ravel’s Le tombeau de Couperin, and playing the second oboe/English horn part is truly a delight, and a whole lot less stressful than that tricky first oboe part!
These young players sure do a fine job! Kudos especially to oboist Juan Manuel García-Cano!
From the YouTube page (you can probably do the translating thing, yes?):
Le tombeau de Couperin. Ravel. Orquesta de Cámara SONY de la Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofía de Madrid. Director/Conductor: JAIME MARTÍN. Primer oboe/First oboe: Juan Manuel García-Cano. Junio/June 2011.
Auditorio Nacional de Música de Madrid. Sála de Cámara/Chamber Music Hall.
This is one very good 12 year old musician! He certainly gets the expressivity of the music down!
(Choosing to do the Marcello on three instruments is an interesting idea and a bit of a gimmick, really. I don’t care for it for a number of reasons, but he’s fine player, to be sure.)
From the YouTube page:

The official channel of the contest All-Russian competition of young talents “Blue Bird”.
The main objective of the competition – to open up new names of young artists, who in a few years will become world stars. “The Blue Bird” will help materialize the dreams of the young participants!
Every child is talented in his own way. But there are children who are already at a young age affect the surrounding rare musicality, sense of rhythm, plasticity, sharp movements.
For the first time in the history of Russian television in the performance of children in the same competition presents all the major types of contemporary performing arts: solo singing – classical, folk and pop, playing musical instruments – academic and folk choreography – classical ballet, ballroom and folk dance, circus arts and some other genres.
This is one of my most favorite moments in the Bach St. Matthew Passion … something about that first entrance by the chorus just shocks me every time.

From the YouTube page (with some translation issues**, as his first name is actually Vyatkin and I don’t know what “A body Sidelnikov” means but I’m betting someone out there can help me!):
