Misc. Comments

Publication noted in AMZ, Feb. 1815 Intelligenzblatt.

The autograph score to this concerto exists (unusual with Viotti - the only other of his concertos to do so is no.28 of 1803/4), with watermark date 1794 - "not firm proof of its existence in that year, but at least a basis for the hypothesis that it was created around that time" (White, "From Vivaldi to Viotti: A History of the Early Classical Violin Concerto", p.335.)
