German composer and violinist Johann Pfeiffer (1697 - 1761) was born in Nuremberg and made a career as concertmaster in various orchestras throughout southern Germany. Much of his life was spent in Bayreuth, working for the court of Wilhelmine of Prussia, Margravine of Bayreuth, teaching her composition and violin. During his lifetime, he composed a variety of orchestra and chamber music, including this Concerto in B-flat Major in three movements: Allegro ma non troppo, Andante, and Allegretto.
In this edition, Victor Van Puijenbroeck has created a piano reduction of the orchestral score and also has adapted the lute part to be played on guitar. Included are parts for both lute (the part has been adapted from lute tablature to modern notation) and guitar (capotasto).
- Guitar (or Lute) - separate parts included for each instrument
