The present work was issued in Paris by Le Duc in ca 1777 and thus belongs to the most productive period of Saint-Georges’ career both as a composer and violin virtuoso. The work was probably composed for performance with the Concert des Amateurs but that it was also performed at the Concert spirituel is evident from Le Duc’s title page: SECOND OEUVRE DE / DEUX / SYMPHONIES / CONCERTANTES / Pour deux Violons principaux, / deux Violons ripieno /, Alto et basse / deux Hautbois et deux Cors, / ad Libitum. / COMPOSÉES / PAR M.R DE S.T GEORGE / Ces Symphonies not été executées au Concert spirituel / Et à [?] de M.rs Les Amateurs. / OEUVRE IX / Gravées par Melle Ollivier / …/ A PARIS / Chez Mr Le Duc…’ This print is for the most part reasonably accurate although there are the usual instances of careless engraving particularly in regard to consistent marking and placement of dynamics and articulations.
