Realizing a partimento as a Concerto Movement

  • Realize as a regular partimento
  • Consider where the ritornello would be
  • Consider Tutti and Solo sections
  • Add imitation if using more than one soloist
  • When the partimento stops, consider filling in with similar materials in the upper parts
  • At some points, use shorter durations to activate the piece rhythmically and offer virtuosic sections for the soloists

Here are some examples or suggestions based on the partimento we looked at earlier
