The "Samuel Scheidt Work Catalogue (SSWV)" reflects the current state of Scheidt scholarship. It describes all of Samuel Scheidt’s works which can be documented in prints and manuscripts, and provides musical incipits as well as notes on the composition process, the state of the sources and on the reception of the works in the 17th century. Thanks to its different indices, the book becomes an indispensable and easy-to-use tool for everyone who will be working on Scheidt and his music in the future. The ideal situation would be one involving creative co-operation between soloist and ensemble which I imagine one could not really expect in the context of traditional performance. Such considerations led me to decide that I would treat the task before me somewhat ironically ('concerto galante') with a certain amount of distance. Hence the untypical (and unpractical) ensemble combination the allusion to folk dance which in its time was fashionable in Western Europe sound-jokes and so on. Today as a foot-note I might add that since 1972 I have in fact written a number of concertante pieces. (Marek Kopelent) At the end the piece alludes to a Bohemian folksong from the area of recruit songs.
