Misc. Comments

May have been a canonic puzzle, with the performers meant to solve where the 2nd violinist was meant to enter and play (like some of the pieces in Bach's Musical Offering and a number of similar such...), as only one part exists in the 1768 copy (or perhaps only that one part in the copy survives and the other is lost.) - Schissel
