product description

A9:1A for viola da gamba, 2 violins, viola, and basso, A2:52–54, first edition, edited in a reconstruction by Wolfgang Kostujak. The Viola da gamba Concerto in A Major from the Ledenburg Collection is preserved anonymously and also incomplete. On the basis of stylistic comparisons, however, we surmise that the composer was Carl Friedrich Abel. Moreover, it was possible to reconstruct the missing parts for our edition, so that now a fully playable, complete concerto is available. It is a typical representative of the early classical period: a light-hearted and cheerful Allegro moderato followed by a contemplative and sensitive Adagio in A Minor. The concluding Allegro is an attractive movement in da capo form. Since the work makes only moderate demands on the soloist and orchestra, it is a welcome addition to the otherwise not very extensive repertoire of viola da gamba concertos.
