According to the Eitner edition, the Sinfonia is "Ohne Bezeichnung der Instrumente", i.e. without indication of instruments. A later aria is marked "Violino solo con leuto o Violoncino, senza Cimbalo". Tagged as orchestra, as the orchestration is obviously flexible, but this could conceivably also be done with strings and continuo alone.
