Francesco Molino – Second Grand Trio Concertant op. 45. New edition by Brian Jeffery. As a printed item


A well known work since Heinrich Albert’s edition of it in about 1910, but now with a score not just parts.


Francesco Molino’s Second Grand Trio Concertant op. 45 for violin or flute, viola, and guitar, follows on from his Trois trios op. 4 and his Grand Trio Concertant, op. 30. All three of them are now available in Tecla for the first time in new re-engraved editions. This trio op. 45 has been known for very many years since Heinrich Albert published it (parts only) with Zimmermann in about 1910. In 1986 I published this trio op. 45 in a facsimile of the original nineteenth-century edition.  In 2004 I made this new re-engraved edition of this trio op. 45 and published it online, which now here is available in paper form.  It is the first time as far as I know that a modern edition of this trio op. 45 with score has been published.

Re-engraved, score and parts.

Again this is a major work. It begins with a long allegro. Then a romance, adagio, really beautiful, just as was the romanza in op. 4 no. 1. Finally, a rondo with lots of energy. Throughout the work as in op. 4 and op. 30 there are plenty of exchanges between the viola and the guitar, and the guitar has a full part to play, not just providing a bass but participating as one of three equal players.

NOTE: this is simple A4 music without a cover. But it is practical for playing from.

56 pages (32 pages score plus 8, 8, 8 pages parts).  A4 size.  New re-engraved edition.
