Overtures (orchestral suites): solo violin + 2 vlns, vla, bc or string orchestra

These works, all first editions as far as is known, next to the ripieno sonatas and concertos (qv), are perhaps the most unjustly neglected and least-well-known part of Telemann's instrumental output. The violin-overtures are all substantial works, with concerto-like soloistic episodes for the violin in the extended fugues in the French overture, and exquisite decorative solo writing in many of the dances. These are perfect for inclusion in any concert programme. Four further overtures with solo violin are listed as forthcoming: SUTEs 81, 82, 127 and 94 - the latter a first edition of the Rostock version of the famous E-major Violin Concerto (TWV51:E2) which includes optional woodwind parts.
