Violoncello Concerto in Bb major
Breitkopf Urtext - New edition by Thomas Fritzsch
Edition for violoncello and piano by Chr. Schornsheim
It was long overdue: a complete, source-critical new edition of this ever popular Boccherini Concerto. The edition, prepared by Thomas Fritzsch, is based on the sole authentic source, a 19th-century copy. All preceding manuscripts are lost. Still available,however, is Friedrich Grützmacher’s pioneer edition, which features a middle movement (the Adagio in G minor) originally found in the Violoncello Concerto in G major No. 7.
