Misc. Comments

  • Grove Music doesn't list a double bass concerto in E major, only 2 in E major, though it references others (instruments not given) that are doubtful or spurious.
  • A score is published by Luck's Music Library, in which the orchestral instrumentation is 2 flutes, 2 horns, strings, cembalo.
  • The Schott edition parts appear to be out of print.
Well, the bass part looks like D major to me. Is it meant to be played scordatura? Or is this a D major work and is "E major" just a misreading after all? - Schissel
Take a look at RISM 240001394 - it seems there are several versions of this, the earliest copy in E major. I believe there was some old convention of tuning the double basses differently (scordatura) for certain keys. - Fynnjamin
This is all correct- the "Viennese tuning" used by the 5 string solo contrabass (D/F-A-d-f#-a) was often tuned up a half step to sound in Eb. The solo part was notated in D and sounded in Eb. The orchestral parts were notated and sounded in Eb. The E major editions are solely an adaptation to enable the use of modern "solo tuning" (F#-B-e-a) on a 4 string instrument tuned in 4ths. - Rechel
