Misc. Comments

Notes from Peters Edition No. 3375b

The first movement of the Sonata for Viola and Violoncello "Duet mit zwei obligaten Augengläsern" Duet with two obbligato eyeglasses) was edited by Fritz Stein after the autograph in the British Museum (Add. MSS. 29801 Fol. 135-137) (Peters Edition No. 3375a).

In 1948, a Minuetto was discovered in Folio 119 of the same MSS. Owing to similarities of character, key, instrumentation, ink, paper, etc., it is assumed that this Minuetto is the second movement of the same Duet-Sonata.

In the hastily written autograph, bars 11-12-13 of the viola part are illegible; they are here reconstructed by the editor. Bowing and expression marks are entirely lacking and these too have been added.

The opening of a third movement (in C major) is in Folio 137 (21 bars for the viola and three bars for the cello part).
