Misc. Notes Continuo not realized (bass line only). Of all the scores posted at IMSLP thus far (18 JAN 2012), this is the only one completely free from the multitude of spurious and un-Baroque dynamics, articulations, bowings, and slurs added by Seiffert in the Kistner & Siegel score, which is most definitely not an Urtext edition.

Misc. Notes This arrangement has a special (and necessary) violin 2b part, written especially for beginner violinists who have never played in ensembles before. Everything is in the first position, and the rhythms are uncomplicated. The purpose of this arrangement is to allow the novice violinist to be a full participant in higher-level music making.
