Listed as op.53/56 (C.197) but as op.46 by Publisher Richault. A melodious work notable for its piano score ossias for pianos with shorter keyboards than the Broadwood instruments Dussek was using at the time.
(A Hamburg-published edition- (J.A. Böhme)- is at, uploaded in 2015. No visible plate no., but perhaps could be dated by other methods- e.g. maybe contemporary publication announcements, for starters. Has the string parts "inside" the piano part.)
definitely published by (near) 1804 July 21 by Breitkopf. See. Richault was not founded until 1805, it seems, so this would have been an earlier publication.
