    Question [Fasch] Concerto identification?

    Hello,

    I once owned a recording of Konrad Ragossnig performing Guitar Concerto in D minor with the Southwest German Chamber Orchestra by Johann Friedrich Fasch. Now, knowing that Fasch didn't likely compose for the guitar, was this piece for the lute and, if so, what was the original name of the concerto?

    I searched for Concerto in D Minor for lute but came up empty handed. The concerto, I'm thinking, was perhaps transposed to the guitar-friendly key of D minor. Not knowing German has hindered my search, also.

    I've attached a MIDI file of what I remember from the guitar's line -- the tempo is likely off.

    Any help identifying this is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Found Fasch's compositional catalog on the web. But it is in german. But you could read the instrumentation part I think

    At first, I discovered the wonders of classical music through the marvels of its baroque period and especially those from Mr. Handel, which explain my forum nickname. About 10 years ago, my interest leaned over classical period and Herr Haydn's production. The music bus recently drove me to the early 1800s. Where will it end?

    Thank you, Handel. I found that also. A little more research and I should find the piece.

    Thanks again,

    Found it. Sure enough it's Concerto in D Minor: Allegro Moderato (track 11).
