Misc. Notes:

Realized the Sinfonia so you can get a good idea of the piece, which you can't from MIDI files. Hopefully some group will want to perform this wonderful piece and post a real version.

Misc. Comments

About the Kram Edition

Never realized what a wonderful melodic gift Graun had. Have made two versions available:

  1. A performance version for orchestras that don't want to deal with all the ornaments (like schools for which a lot of this music is perfect)
  2. A more or less original transcription for the purist. No figures in the manuscript, but it works fine without them being in a pretty pre-classical style.

I'll add a realization to the performance edition when I have time. Note only the Andante uses winds. The other two movements are for Strings and Continuo.
