Misc. Notes:

From the uploader's library. The last movement of the no.2 C-minor sonata has no continuo part. The editor's 1963 comments establish that this edition is based on part-books found at the "Kungliga Musikaliska Adademien" in Stockholm (currently available on microfilm). The editor stresses nothing has been added except the figured bass realization which which may indicate the Schneider additions were posterior
