“The “Concert à 9 Parties,” 50:1, features an eccentric instrumentation of flute (“ordinary, or that at the octave [i.e. piccolo], or the two combined”), alto chalumeau, oboe, two violins almost entirely in unison, viola, two concertante contrabasses, and continuo.

The work is in fact a three-movement symphony, as indicated by the original title that Telemann crossed out before he began composing: “Grillen-Symphonie in the Italian, French, English, Scottish, and Polish styles.” Although this title was rejected, along with the jumble of national idioms, it helps explain the music’s curiously tongue-in-cheek style (Grillen, as used in this sense, are whims)” (From “Music for a Mixed Taste: Style, Genre, and Meaning in Telemann’s” by Steven Zohn)

Edition based on manuscript by Telemann: Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin (D-B): Mus. ms. autogr. G. Ph. Telemann 3.

Score (18 pp.) and parts (Flute, Oboe, Chalumeau, Double bass 1, Double bass 2, Violins 1 and 2, Viola and Basso Continuo)
