Heckelphone / Bass Oboe Repertoire

Excerpt: Compositions for heckelphone (chronological)

by Peter Hurd; reorganized and amended by Holger Hoos, editor-in-chief since 2020

version 2 (1 February 2022)

This collection is based on the catalogue of musical works requiring heckelphone or bass oboe instrumentation assembled by Peter Hurd beginning in 1998. For this new edition, the original version of the repertoire list has been edited for accuracy, completeness and consistency, and it has been extended with a number of newly discovered pieces.

Some entries could not (yet) be rigorously verified for accuracy; these were included nonetheless, to provide leads for future investigation, but are marked clearly. Pieces were selected for inclusion based solely on the use of heckelphone, bass oboe or lupophone, without any attempt at assessing their artistic merit. Arrangements of pieces not originally intended for these instruments were included when there was clear evidence that they had found a significant audience.

We gratefully acknowledge contributions by Crawford Best, Ulrich Brokamp, Michael Finkelman, Francis Firth, Alain Girard, Thomas Hiniker, Robert Howe, Gunther Joppig, Georg Otto Klapproth, Mark Perchanok, Andrew Shreeves and Michael Sluman.

Rossini, Gioachino (1792-1868): Guillaume Tell (arrangement by Willem de Haan), 1905

Remarks: due to a misunderstanding of a common Italian practice for notating cor anglais parts in bass clef, one octave below the sound of the instrument, there were several performances that used the newly introduced heckelphone instead of cor anglais in this piece (notably for the well-known solo in the overture); the first such performance, on 8 January 1905 in Darmstadt under Willem de Haan, was the first occasion on which the heckelphone was heard in public; the original opera in four acts was first performed on 3 August 1829 in Paris, France, by the Opéra de Paris under François-Antoine Habeneck
