The two Violin Concertos, Op.2 by Saint-Georges call for pairs of oboes (or flutes) and horns ad libitum. Although the auxiliary parts are not entrusted with presenting thematic material, their presence adds both to the weight and brilliance of the ritornello sections.

The scoring in the solo sections is unusually delicate
even by the standards of the mid-eighteenth-century concerto with its frequent use of two- and three-part string textures with the viola and/or basso part omitted and serves as a reminder that concertos were performed and thought of as a type of chamber music at this time even when they were performed by expanded forces as was likely the case with Op.2.

Saint-Georges, Joseph Bologne de (1745-1799)

Symphonie Concertante in B-flat Major, Op. 6, No. 2 (AE618) 
Edited by Allan Badley
Score (Hardcopy): US$72.00/ (PDF): US$54.00
ISBN: 978-988-8529-80-3 (print) / 978-988-8529-81-0 (digital)

As its designation suggests, the symphonie concertante is a hybrid genre that draws on both the symphony and concerto traditions.

Saint-Georges favoured the genre to be indistinguishable from a concerto with multiple soloists in its retention of the characteristic hybrid sonata-ritornello structure, perhaps because as a virtuoso himself, he felt instinctively drawn to the concerto rather to than the symphony. The two-movement symphonie concertantes typically have a conventional first movement followed by a rondo with no intervening
slow movement. Indeed, this is structure employed by Saint-Georges in his first published work in the genre, the Symphonie Concertante in C, Op.6 No.1. The second work of the pair, however, does have a slow movement but the cycle concludes with a rondo.

Michl, Joseph Willibald: Quartet in C Major for Bassoon and Strings (Schwemmer B XIX: 3.2) (AE602) 
Edited by Kate Nelson

Parts: US$29.00 / PDF: US$21.75
ISBN: 978-988-8708-20-8 (print) / 978-988-8708-21-5 (digital)
ISMN: 979-0-805700-70-0

These works are the epitome of urbane sophistication; elegant in construction, mellifluous and with a clarity of texture that allows the bassoon to shine.

While he occasionally exploits the extreme upper and lower range of the instrument, Michl confines most of the bassoon writing to the tenor register where the instrument’s natural warmth and tone can be heard to advantage.
