Concerto per Traversa o Violino principale, Archi e Basso [RV 430]
PDF icon Sample page PDF icon Score

The main source of Concerto RV 430 is a manuscript of the score (copyist C. Graupner), online available at Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek, Darmastadt (Mus ms. 411/1, RISM ID no. 450003286). A second source, available in the same library, is a modern transcription by Friedrich Noack, (Mus. ms. 1730). The basso continuo realization in the second movement was transcribed from this second source. Note that this concerto, sometimes tagged as 275a, is a rework with a different second movement of violin concerto RV 275. The first part is indicated as "Violino Principale o Traversa". In fact, in the two outer movements, the part does not contain chords and uses the extension d1-e3 (with one exception in Tutti of the first movement) and may have been written for the flute rather than for the violin.

Ms. is not very accurate with accidentals. Modern editions include variants of the original script that have not been considered.

Concerto per Violino, archi e Basso [RV 275]
PDF icon Sample PDF icon Score

The source of Concerto RV 275 is the printed edition of parts, Le Cène, Amsterdam, c. 1730: “CONCERTI A CINQUE / Con Violini, Oboè, Violetta, Violoncello / e Basso Continuo / Del (!) Signori / G. Valentini, A. Vivaldi, T. Albinoni, / F. M. Veracini, G. S.t Martin, / A. Marcello, G. Rampin, A. Predieri / Libro Secondo / A Amsterdam / Chez / Michel Charles Le Céne Libraire / N.o 433”. This concerto is an early opus preceding „Estro Armonico“ (1711). The first publication of it is in J. Roger "Concerti a Cinque" (Amsterdam 1717). Note that a copy of this concert, with a different second movement (RV 275a), in possession of Christoph Graupner, indicates the first part as "Violino Principale o Traversa". In fact, in the two outer movements, the part does not contain chords and uses the extension d1-e3 (with one exception in Tutti of the first movement) and may have been written for the flute rather than for the violin. This notice is reported in "The Scoring of Baroque Concertos, Richard Maunder, C. R. F. Maunder".
