Misc. Comments

Grove Music lists this for one oboe and one violin, but the score specifies "violini è hoboa" (not sure if that oboe spelling means singular or plural). However, there are 4 score lines in the tutti passages, and the instrumental clefs are G clef (with a continual alternation between "con Haub" and "senza Haub") and C3 clef, which is alto clef; this would correspond to the oboe/violin line + 1 other string line. The alto clef part, though, never goes below G below middle C, and thus does not go out of violin range. Tagged for 2 violins.
