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:

Timothy Yahnov, 12, St. Petersburg. Timothy plays the oboe. He studies at the School of Music at St. Petersburg College of Music. Rimsky-Korsakov. Acts in the ensemble and as part of the Youth Symphony Orchestra, in addition engaged in piano and vocals. In the future, he plans to master the oboe d’amore, baroque oboe and oboe da Caccia. In his spare time he likes to ride a bike.

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!):
I.S.Bah- “Adagio” from the Easter Oratorio
In Vyatkin oboe.
A body Sidelnikov

I’d never heard of this work, much less the composer. I’d love to perform this sometime! I think it was originally for French horn but perhaps included an “or English horn” on the front page. I’ve not seen the music since it’s not available on imslp in the US yet and I’m careful not to download things that are still under copyright.

Sorry this is late! I forgot to hit post, I guess.

Rudolf Mauersberger: Wie liegt die Stadt so wüst
Windsbacher Knabenchor

How lonely lies Jerusalem,
once so full of people!
The city gates stand empty,
the stones of the holy place lie strewn
upon the grass before it.
He sent fire from above,
a fire that burns inside me.
Is this the city of which they say,
it is the most beautiful of all,
over which the whole country rejoices?

She did not think
that she would come to this
Her downfall was terrible;
no one can comfort her.
This is why we are sick at heart
and can hardly see through our tears.

Why have you abandoned us so long?
Will you ever remember us again?
Bring us back to you, Lord,
so that we may come home.
Bring us back!
Restore our ancient glory.
Lord, see my misery
O Lord, see my misery.

(Lamentations: 1/ 1,4,13; 2/ 15; 1/9; 5/ 17,20,21,1)

Here is his message on the Facebook page:
“All ducklings wear feathers!”
Funny piece by Jan Huylebroeck, meant for oboe-starters.
The composer is also the pianist in this video.
Watch carefully: he is wearing double glasses 🙂
