Francesco Geminiani Thematic Catalogue
This online version of the Francesco Geminiani Thematic Catalogue is intended as a searchable companion to the printed version, which will form Volume 17 of the Francesco Geminiani Opera Omnia and include incipits.
Works are arranged in order of ascending H. number:
|Instrumental Works||H. 1 –|
|Keyboard Works||H. 200 –|
|Vocal Works||H. 300 –|
|Treatises and Didactic Works||H. 400 –|
A new H. number is given to all variants that involve substantial additions or changes to the original version: for example, Op. 1/1 is H. 1 in its original 1716 version, H. 13 in its 1739 revision, H. 25 in its trio arrangement, and H. 37 as a concerto. Simple substitution or elimination of parts will be noted under the main entry: for example, the substitution of flutes in Op. 2.
