Francesco Molino – Second Grand Trio Concertant op. 45. New edition by Brian Jeffery


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 is again another fine trio, following on from his Trois trios op. 4 and his Grand Trio Concertant, op. 30, all three of them 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.
