'''Oboe Concerto No. 3 in G minor''' (HWV 287) was composed by George Frideric Handel for oboe, orchestra and basso continuo, possibly in 1704-1705,Blair Johnston, [http://www.answers.com/topic/oboe-concerto-in-g-minor-no-3-hwv-287-possibly-spurious Oboe Concerto in G minor (No.3), HWV 287 (possibly spurious)] when he was still in Hamburg. The work is also referred to as "Oboe concerto No. 3". It was first published in Leipzig in 1863 (from unknown sources) in which it was described as a work from 1703. No other source for the work is known. Other catalogues of Handel's music have referred to the work as HG xxi,100; and HHA iv/12,3.

A typical performance of the work takes almost ten minutes.
