Misc. Comments

Oboes are not mentioned on the title page of the score above, but there are small directions in the score itself, eg. "ob", "VV" which indicate when the oboes are alone, when the violins are alone and when oboes and violins are in unison. These were added in Zelenka's hand and don't appear in the published version of the work.
