Forces: violoncello solo, strings & continuo
Porpora’s G Major cello concerto from a contemporary copy in BL MS Add 14125. This performing edition comes complete with parts for orchestra and soloist. The MIDI preview is of the second movement – Allegro. There are four movements in total (Adagio (C) – Allegro (C) – Adagio (3/4) – Allegro (6/8)). The concerto is highly virtuosic and the solo writing well suited to the instrument.
