Misc. Comments

Krommer's 9 partitas for wind nonet (opp.57, 67, 69, 71, 73, 76, 77, 78 and 79) were originally published as "Harmonie". Several manuscript sources listed in RISM, however, use Partitta or Parthia. The modern editions by Musica rara (opp. 57, 67, 69 and 79) dropped the title "Harmonie" using "Octet-Partita" instead, hinting thereby at the possibility to perform the works as octets. While the Contrabassoon improves the sonorities of the ensemble substantially, Bassoon II and Contrabassoon are mostly in octave parallels and only a few bars have a distinct contrabassoon part.
