Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) wrote his Sinfonie Concertante in B flat major in 1792.
The work is scored for four solo instruments—violin, cello, oboe, and bassoon—plus orchestra consisting of flute, 2 oboes, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 clarini (trumpets), timpani, and strings. There are three movements: Allegro, Andante, and Allegro con spirito.
A 1920 arrangement by Hans Sitt (1850-1922) for violin, cello, oboe, bassoon, and piano is available for download from the Petrucci Music Library website IMSLP.org. The cello part in that edition makes extensive use of false treble clef in the first two movements, so I have re-typeset those movements to include only bass clef, tenor clef, and "true" treble clef. (Only the cello part is available here on this Daisyfield.com website; to download the other parts, go to the Petrucci site mentioned above.)
Hans Sitt made a minor error in the bassoon part. To correct it, insert an extra measure in the bassoon part after the second measure of the fourth staff on page 6, and also insert a bass clef symbol at the end of the inserted measure.
