Misc. Comments

Not listed in Grove. Possibly a doubtful attribution (many composers under the name Rosetti), or an arrangement of the Op.6 String Quartets (D9–14/IV:2).

Mentioned however in the Allgemeine Literatur-Zeitung, 1787, page 100, so whoever wrote it, Rosetti or someone else, published it in/ca. 1787. (as a publication from André - the Schott would be a later edition.)- Schissel

The sonata no.1 in D, at least, is listed as MurR. D32 (see RISM 853001407) and one presumes? is accepted as authentic. That in A is given MurR. D33 (see RISM 853001463). Comment in RISM applying to both: "According to MurR: in most prints of other publishers than A. Zatta & figli as trio for keyb, vl and vlc".

RISM-online doesn't seem to list the 3rd; the D major no.4 seems to be the same (in incipits at least) as the trio Op.5/3 in D, MurR D31 (see RISM 230006512); likewise compare no.5 in E with trio Op.5/2 in E, Murray D30 (see RISM 230006511), etc. (though there are only 3 Op.5 trios so it makes sense that there are only 3 such correspondences. Still, according to RISM, at least some of the first three also exist as trios too.)
