Formatted Abstract/Summary
Mit seinen faszinierenden und ungewöhnlichen Strukturen zeigt dieses Werk Grauns perfekte Kenntnis beider Soloinstrumente und seine Fähigkeit, so zu orchestrieren, dass sie nicht übertönt werden. Es ist eine wertvolle Ergänzung des relativ begrenzten barocken und klassischen Doppelkonzertrepertoires. Als Hauptquelle für unsere praktische Neuausgabe diente die seit kurzem wieder zugängliche Quelle aus den Beständen der Sing-Akademie zu Berlin. Als Zweitquelle haben wir die Darmstädter Abschrift des Gambisten Ludwig Christian Hesse verwendet, bei der jedoch die Soloviolinstimme fehlt. Die von Carl Friedrich Zelter später zur Partitur hinzugefügten Hornstimmen wurden übernommen, da sie den Orchesterklang farbiger machen.

With its fascinating and unusual textures, this work shows Graun's consummate knowledge of both solo instruments, as well as his ability to orchestrate in such a way that they are not obscured. It is a valuable addition to the relatively scarce baroque and classical double concerto repertoire. Our practical edition primarily follows the source of the Sing-Akademie zu Berlin which was thought to have been lost, but was rediscovered just a few years ago. As a secondary source we used the copy from Darmstadt which is written by the gambist Ludwig Christian Hesse, but which lacks the part of the solo violin. We have also included the horn parts added by Carl Friedrich Zelter since they undoubtedly add to the string timbre.
