Johann Sebastian Bach wrote a transcription of the piece in D minor for harpsichord (BWV 974), enhancing the dramatics of the first movement and embellishing the Adagio.

The Concerto for Oboe and Strings in D minor, attributed to Alessandro Marcello, is one of the most performed oboe concertos in the repertory. It was written in the early 18th century and has become Marcello’s most famous work. Bach wrote a keyboard transcription of the concerto. (x)
