Grove doesn't list the flute as an alternate for these sonatas, and although it is on the title page, it is clearly an afterthought, as an addition underneath the instrumentation line.
- Well, the part has "Flauto o Violino", not "Violino o Flauto" in two lines- it's only on the front cover where there seems to be some doubt as to intentions, and even that front page might have been an engraver's design error requiring some cleverness before press time, or a who-knows... Op.12 looks far more scrawled-in on the copy sold to Sibley also. Odd, for an engraved issue... RISM gives the date as 1798 (hrm... maybe not... Pölitz 1798 suggests the date it was copied, or the date it came into Karl Heinrich Ludwig Pölitz's (1772–1838) hands (whether or not he was the copyist, it was in his collection).) - Schissel
