The transcription into modern notation of the first edition in the form of a partbook (Venice, 1694) is very sophisticated; the movable type process allowed only single notes without beaming, a technique that was already common at that time in the copperplate engraving process for instrumental music. The hand of an experienced editor is urgently needed here, and not only for the continuo realization. With his CD recording as harpsichordist of the ensemble "Parnassi musici," Lutz long ago gave a practical demonstration of how exciting and stimulating Albinoni's debut work can sound.
"Die Neuausgaben der ersten Hälfte der Triosonaten durch Martin Lutz markiert hier hoffentlich nur einen Anfang."(ensemble)
