Ralph Vaughan Williams wrote his Concerto in A minor for Oboe and Strings for soloist Léon Goossens in 1944. This pastoral piece is divided into three movements:
- Rondo Pastorale (Allegro moderato)
- Minuet and Musette (Allegro moderato)
- Scherzo (Presto - Doppio più lento - Lento - Presto)
The concerto was intended to premiere at a Proms concert, but due to the threat of V1 rocket raids on London the piece was first played in Liverpool instead.
