|Work Title||4 Nocturnal Trio Sonatas, W B.30-35|
|Alternative Title||4 Sonate Notturno a 2 Violini e Basso o piuttosto Viola|
|Composer||Bach, Johann Christian|
|Opus/Catalogue Number||W. B 30-35|
|Instrumentation||2 violins, basso (cover page mentions an optional viola part, but it is missing from this set)|
The basso part has no numbers, but could be realized into a keyboard part. Grove lists the instrumentation for this piece as "2vn va/bc". They have also been published as op.2 (1763) and op.4 (1767).
- Does Grove's mean 2 violins, viola -and- basso continuo as seems more likely, or 2 violins and "viola or basso continuo" which is hard to understand offhand - basso continuo is a -very- wide range of instruments, which for all I know (yes? no?) may even be understood to include viola (?)... - I would have guessed 2vn va ; 2vn vc as a tag myself...
