Violin Concerto No.13 (Viotti, Giovanni Battista)
No files submitted.
Paris: Janet Frères, n.d. n.p.
From the uploader's library. Probably an early edition since the publisher's premises are labelled "Frères" (who was Pierre-Honoré's brother ?) with the hitherto unrecorded address : 47 rue Vivienne. This violin part is without any accompaniment, at least in the uploader's library. Incidentally, Prieur duPerray's edition of the violin part is strictly identical, so his arrangement would only concern the piano part. The title page bears the announcement Violon Principal. Inside we have at page top Violon Principale.
In order to refine the date of publication, an approach can be made via the dealer's stamp on the title page : Martin Frères, 72 rue de la Pomme, Toulouse. This dealership with Casimir Martin at its head produced pianos from 1810 onward, with some innovative designs, such as a suspended iron frame, patented in 1840, and the so-called "chirogymnast" or "digital gymnasium" (same year), to strengthen digital agility, which was warmly recommended by the virtuoso Friedrich Kalkbrenner (1785–1849).

Anyone have access to? Not for copying (it's copyright 1973)- but this reprint of the orchestral score-or-parts of an early edition of concerto 13 would be a useful source of information for the instrumentation of this concerto (by the usual means, that is, going through each movement and tallying up the instruments used- probably not sticking to just the first pages of the movements, just to be sure :) )
(It's true that as with some of the other concertos the instrumentation of the published version, and some details, may vary from that of the manuscript scores- at least, summaries of the instrumentation of the ms. scores/parts at the Fleisher Collection have been different from those of the published part-batches we have of some of the (same) concerto, in at least one case and perhaps more; perhaps likewise here though Fleisher does not seem to have this concerto...)
