6 Trios (Haydn, Joseph)
From the uploader's library.
In his Foreword, the editor dates these trios at the beginning of Haydn's residence in the Esterházy establishment. They were first published in 1804 by Simrock but he has also based his edition on manuscripts in the Marburg Prussian State Library. Compared to the 1804 print, the latter have 3 extra movements, 2 for the fourth Trio, and 1 for the second. The latter was so mutilated it had to be left out, but the other 2 have been included, the Allegro serves as the finale for the fourth Trio, whereas the extra Adagio which couldn't serve as its finale is provided as a supplement.

(abschrifts of the trio Hob.V:G1; the latter from a 1770 (ca. - date of copies) Library of Congress collection of 69 trios, original and arranged trios with bass by Haydn; the former from Helikon Kastélymúzeum Könyvtára, Keszthely, Hungary.)
(abschrift (without title) of the trio in E♭, at Zbirka Don Nikole Udina Algarotti, Zagreb.)
Probably originally called Divertimenti à 3, based on earlier manuscript copies. (Bass- figured bass, it seems. RISM uses vlc when cello is meant, "b" when figured bass is meant?)
