From the uploader's library. Note : In his short unhelpful Preface dated from 1964 in Hamburg, Karl Grebe does not care to indicate what source he used for his edition, which is described as "edited and arranged" and is supposed to be a "First Edition", a situation which should have encouraged him to clarify these points. Incidentally the other editions here do not shed further light on the matter, from which one might surmise this edition may have been used as their source. Karl Grebe feels that this work is an excellent example of how Telemann pioneered "the newly opening realms of concerted music", an exciting prospect were it not that the authenticity of this work appears to be questionable.

(note: not copied by Pisendel, but -inspired- by Pisendel possibly. See Music for a Mixed Taste (Zohn's book on Telemann's concertos). Seems also to have been copied out by Pisendel. Regarded by Zohn as mostly a violin, not trumpet, concerto, with trumpet and cello obligato part; he also conjectures that Pisendel rewrote some parts when recopying the work in Dresden - perhaps the Darmstadt version differs substantially. Zohn: "the technical demands of the solo episodes are almost without parallel in Telemann's concertos.... if this concerto was not written by Pisendel, it must have been inspired by another violinist of uncommon ability.") Probably composed after 1715.
