Abstract: This study presents a performance edition, in full score and parts, of Terzetto No. 9 in D Minor by Johann Daniel Grimm, one of the first generation of Moravian composers. Previously, this trio existed only in manuscript form in the archives of the Moravian Music Foundation in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The Music Editing Policy of the Moravian Music Foundation served as a guide in creating the performance edition. Dating from the eighteenth-century, the manuscript is in relatively good condition. Editorial adjustments primarily included updating the notation, deciphering the handwriting, and correcting the few copyist mistakes. The music notation software Finale Printmusic 2009 and Finale 2011 were used to create the performance edition. An analysis and historical perspective are included to provide a stylistic context for this previously unpublished work by a relatively unknown composer. This edition of Terzetto No. 9 will be suitable for modern performance and contribute to the body of available Moravian instrumental literature.
