In the absence of an authoritative source, the present edition seeks to transmit as unambiguously as possible the composer's intentions as transmitted in the Andr print. The title page of the copy preserved in Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Wien reads: GRAND CONCERT / pour le / Violon principal / avec l'Accompagnement de plusieurs Instrumens / par Mr IGNACE PLEYEL / Ddi / MONSIEUR DE St GEORG / Docteur en Droits, Syndic de la Ville libre Imp- / riale de Spire & Conseiller Aulique de S.A.S.Msgr. / le Prince d'Oelting[sic]- Wallerstein / par l'Editeur. A supplementary label also adds Zu finden in Wienn bey Artaria Compagnie. Although Artaria initially distributed Andr's print he later issued the work under his own imprint. In preparing the edition the notation of articulation and dynamic markings has been standardised throughout, and, where missing, markings have been reconstructed from parallel passages. These are indicated by the use of dotted slurs or brackets where appropriate. Like most eighteenth-century sources, the print is inconsistent at times in its notation of appoggiature; these have also been standardised to minimise confusion. Obvious wrong notes have been silently corrected; otherwise, any editorial emendation with no authority from the source is placed within brackets.
