Misc. Notes:

The more I play this piece, the more I love it. I'm posting two versions of "La Calma" from the Overture (GWV 474) - 1) A more or less literal transcription with realized continuo and some embellishment of the long trills in the piece that are obviously meant to be filled out and 2) An arrangement for piano and solo violin. If you want to see the original violin part without trill embellishments see the "La Calma" movement in the full score posted on the Scores and Parts tab. What other hidden treasures are lurking in the Graupner manuscripts?

Misc. Notes:

A rather faithful arrangement for Violin and Piano with violin embellishments on long trilled notes. Otherwise Graupner's violin part with original markings. If you want the violin part alone, see the parts posted for the orchestral version. If you want to see the original violin part without trill embellishments see the "La Calma" movement in the full score posted on the Scores and Parts tab.

About the Kram Edition

I assume the Overtures were (at least at times) used as Overtures for his Cantatas, none of which I have seen start with an Overture. His music is never complicated and always seems to sing. Melodies that sometimes take a rather quirky turn here and there. This overture (really an orchestral suite) is filled with a number of very interesting programmatic elements. "La Calma" is in my thinking one of the most melodic violin pieces of the Baroque era, combining Italian and Germanic styles (see the arrangements tab for a full treatment of this wonderful piece that should be in every violinist's repertoire). Graupner is slowing coming back into the public's eye, and rightfully so. I am posting a more or less literal transcription of the Overture, along with parts. I will put a couple versions of La Calma on the arrangements tab along with a piano reduction of the entire Overture.

"Overture" is, I think, a term that basically became interchangeable with "Suite" at some point in the early Baroque period, I believe, and might have started to mean overture to a concert. You may be right, however, and I do think I recall instances of orchestral overtures/suites known both to have been performed separately and as preludes to vocal works (by Händel, for instance). (Not to mention other works not overtures, famously the D minor concerto (no.1) by Bach whose first movement exists as the first movement of one of his cantatas, but that's not quite relevant...)
