Hofmann Flute Concerto in G Major-Flute and piano-Artaria Editions AE145/SE
Hofmann Flute Concerto in G Major-Flute and piano-Artaria Editions AE145/SE Hofmann, Leopold: Flute Concerto in G major (Badley G2) [Study Edition] (AE145/SE) – sheet music The present work was advertised in Supplement IV (1769) of the Breitkopf Catalogue but was written, in all likelihood, a year or two earlier. Although only two sets of parts survive – one in the Frst Thurn und Taxis Hofbibliothek in Regensburg (Hofmann 16) and the other in the Narodn Muzeum, Prague (XXVII B 51) – its listing in Breitkopf suggests that the concerto circulated fairly widely during Hofmann’s lifetime. This edition is based on the Prague MS which agrees in most details with the Regensburg source. The wrapper reads: ” Concerto di flauto / Traverso con Violini / Viola e Basso / del Sig: Leopoldo Hoffmann “. In the absence of both the autograph score and an authentic set of parts, this edition presents as faithfully as possible the intentions of the composer as transmitted in the Prague source. As is usual in Hofmann’s concertos, there are no dynamic markings in the solo sections; these are left to the discretion and good taste of the performer. The style and notation of articulation and dynamic markings have been standardised throughout, and, where missing from the source markings have been reconstructed from parallel passages. These are indicated by the use of dotted slurs or brackets. Like most eighteenth-century sources, the present manuscript is inconsistent in its notation of appoggiature ; these too have been standardised to minimise confusion. Obvious wrong notes have been corrected without comment; editorial emendations with no authority from the source are placed within brackets.
