Misc. Comments

Not Baroque style, I think. Influenced by Haydn and the Mannheim school; I'd even suggest perhaps the composition date as well as copy date might be ca.1750-1800 from the "sound" of the opening, though could be earlier of course. A certain expansiveness/willingness for the themes and the movements to breathe that has more of later-than-early Classicism than of e.g. JC Bach's symphonies (not a value judgment/statement as to _quality_!)

(A Naumann piano concerto in B-flat has been recorded a few times, not sure about this work though...)
