Concerto per Flautino in La minore
The manuscript of separate parts is located at Digitale Bibliothek, SLUB, Dresden (Ms Mus. Mus.2174-O-1), RISM ID no. 212001265. The Flautino part is written with the french clef and in D minor instead of A minor, thus requiring a transposition by a fourth as in other concerts for the same instrument (e. g. Vivaldi, Sammartini, Woodkock). This fact suggests the use of a fifth flute, a soprano recorder in C. Ms. includes a “Flauto ò Hautbois” part in A minor, indicating an alternative instrumentation of this Concerto. The score is notated as in ms, while separate parts were transposed and written with currently used clefs.
