Comment
Der instrumentale Solopart in Satz 3 ist in der autographen Partitur ohne Besetzungsangabe, im originalen Stimmensatz erscheint er als Teil des Violino-I-Parts, notiert allerdings wie in der Partitur im Altschlüssel. Als Soloinstrumente kommen daher sowohl die Violine (der Tonumfang unterschreitet nicht das g), als auch die Viola in Frage.
