Misc. Comments

From the looks of it, this Concerto is meant for a portable organ capable of only one decibel level, one easily covered up by a modest string section playing forte. If played on a mighty church organ, having all stops pulled out is probably a bad idea.

The lack of horns is rather puzzling: most music of the period with trumpets has horns as well, and it is the presence of horns that does not guarantee the presence of trumpets. If the conductor does not want the horns to sit this one out, it would be entirely feasible to give them trumpet parts and have them read them as if for horn in low C.

It is believed that the soloist is expected to improvise a slow movement. There is no explicit indication that continuo is expected, but given the time period, it is a very reasonable assumption.
