We know from 18th-century London newspaper advertisements that Abel successfully performed his own concertos for viola da gamba and orchestra at numerous events. Unfortunately, the scores of these concertos have not survived, but the cello and flute version of a concerto that was probably originally a viola da gamba concerto. This edition presents a reconstruction of the viola da gamba version, following very closely the two originals. Score and parts.
