This piece of Beethoven was considered lost, until a score of the second movement didn't emerge somewhere.
That score, however, contains only the part of the Oboe and some other parts.

Someone completed the score with other instruments, so the piece I share here below is not exactly of Beethoven, but a work of various hands, including Beethoven.

However, I like it. What do you think about it?

Considered lost? Should be considered nonexistent, given how little of it apparently ever (allegedly) existed. Until the score didn't emerge somewhere? Huh?

Sounds like bad 19thc ballet music. Ugh.

I feel though that Beethoven would hear this and he might make the rhythms more varied and add a few unexpected harmonic things, and voila, people would say now that's Beethoven. Whatever is this clip of yours, it sounds like some draft of at least his voice leading and instrumentation.

Edit: and Beethoven would add more tempo markers. This performance sounds flat in tempo and expression and that's probably the big superficial difference.

Lost piece of Beethoven: Hess 12 - Oboe Concerto

... I like it. What do you think about it?

Well ... um ... I suggest that Beethoven says more (about both the oboe and of music in general) in single measure 268 of the opening movement of his Fifth Symphony than this spurious "Hess 12 Oboe Concerto" could say if put on repeat mode for 268 plays.

Sorry.
