Not recorded

There are a number of issues with information given in the programme. Firstly, the key and movement titles of the W. F. Bach concerto in D minor suggest that it was J. S. Bach’s concerto in D minor, BWV 596, a transcription of Vivaldi's op. 3 no 11, that was performed on this occasion. Apparently, W. F. Bach added his name to the score, hence the mis-attribution in the programme. Secondly, it is likely that the Handel violin sonata in D major performed on this occasion was HWV 371, although the first movement is marked affettusoso not maestoso. It is not entirely clear which work by Alessandro Scarlatti was performed, but it was probably the Toccata no 12 in A major, one of the movements of which is entitled 'partita alla lombardo'. Finally, the variations on a theme of Corelli by Tartini-Kreisler is in fact by Kreisler in the style of Tartini.
