Misc. Notes This file is part of the Sibley Mirroring Project.
At the time of publication (1911), the original by Vivaldi had not yet been rediscovered; so, musicologists had erroneously attributed the concerto to W. F. Bach because of the little inscription “Di W. F. Bach. Manu mei Patris descripsit.” on the manuscript.

Misc. Notes This file is part of the Sibley Mirroring Project. Attributed to W.F. Bach on the score. There are at least two works listed in HMB this could be - the other is Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1872), p.70 - but the plate number fits 1858 much better, and no mode is specified on the score (though it is clearly in some form of D minor, not D major). (However, 1858 has eingerichtet, while 1872 has arr. ; this score has eingerichtet. If HMB follows the description on the score, that settles in favor of 1858 also.)

Misc. Comments

Previously attributed to W. F. Bach. However, the handwriting is undoubtedly JSB's, who seems to have been the copyist and most probably the arranger. See Alfred Einstein's introduction to the Eulenburg edition of the Vivaldi Concerto Grosso RV 565 for a discussion.
