Sample Score

The reference source is a ms. of separate parts Mus. 2199-N-2. This Sinfonia in g has been classified by: GiaA 110, TalAl Si 7, RosA II.D.2.3.1.  In this version it could be an arrangement of a symphony for a string orchestra to the needs of the Dresda orchestra: flutes and oboes are always doubling the violin parts. Even bassoon is doubling the bass part.

Sinfonia in Do maggiore con 2 Flauti traversieri, 2 Oboi, 2 VV.ni, Viola e Basso
Sample Score

Source is a ms of 18 separate parts Mus. 2199-N-4, Digitale Sammlungen, SLUB Dresden. Several authors classified this Sinfonia: GiaA 112, TalAl Mi 2, RosA II.D.2.1.1. Possibly, it is an arrangement for the Dresden Orchestra of a Sinfonia for oboes and strings by Albinoni. In fact, almost always flutes double violins and in the first movement fall below the usual instrument range.
