This thesis investigates the relationship of the eighteenth-century German born composer, Johann Adolf Hasse, to the oboe. It highlights Hasse’s use of the oboe in ways ranging from veiled in the texture, to “singing” a duet with the singer in an important aria. It presents examples of an important aria from Hasse’s masterwork, Cleofide, which are ornamented by Hasse’s wife, Faustina Bordoni Hasse. These examples are presented with the oboist in mind, providing a means to learn improved ornamentation for the works of Hasse. It also presents an example of Hasse’s use of oboe in duet with mezzo-soprano, in the recording of Piange Quel Fonte from Numa Pompilio. The reader is encouraged to listen to a suggested recording featuring the American mezzo-soprano, Vivica Genaux. It explores the music of J. Hasse as highly relevant to the oboist looking for new repertoire, and worthy of a genuine consideration of proper style.
