Sonatas for Violoncello and Basso Continuo by Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741). Edited by Bernhard Moosbauer. For cello and piano. Published by Wiener Urtext/Vienna Urtext (PR.UT50175).
This collection from Vienna Urtext is comprised of Vivaldi's nine sonatas for cello, and bears more authenticity than ever before, as it is no longer based on the unauthorized first Paris edition by Le Clerc & Boivin. Instead, this edition draws from manuscripts found in Naples, revised by Vivaldi himself. Additional sources include manuscripts from the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris and the music library of the Counts of Schonborn at Wiesentheid, both with ties to the composer. Gerhart Darmstadt provides performance and practice notes, and the piano score is available with both realized and non-realized basso continuo parts. For both professional and student players.
