Misc. Comments

  • Though the title page says "Sinfonie concertanti", the parts say "Sinfonia I" etc.; Grove Music only refers to these by the name "Quintet", with the instrumentation at one per part, i.e. no orchestral tag.
  • Interestingly Grove's work list has another "op.2", though it probably is a publisher error -- in 1777, in Offenbach, there was a re-issue of a set of 6 Trios for 2 violins and basso, as "op.2", but the original Paris edition was designated "op.1".
