Francesco Geminiani Thematic Catalogue


This online version of the Francesco Geminiani Thematic Catalogue is intended as a searchable companion to the printed version, which will form Volume 17 of the Francesco Geminiani Opera Omnia and include incipits.
Works are arranged in order of ascending H. number:

  Instrumental Works H. 1 –
  Keyboard Works H. 200 –
  Vocal Works H. 300 –
  Treatises and Didactic Works H. 400 –

A new H. number is given to all variants that involve substantial additions or changes to the original version: for example, Op. 1/1 is H. 1 in its original 1716 version, H. 13 in its 1739 revision, H. 25 in its trio arrangement, and H. 37 as a concerto. Simple substitution or elimination of parts will be noted under the main entry: for example, the substitution of flutes in Op. 2.
