Grove Music lists three "op.1" sets for Tessarini, of which two are listed as "unauthorized prints". None of the three are solo violin concerti, though there is an unauthorized print of concerto from 1732.. Since the "real" op.1 is listed as "[12] Sonate … parte I (–II), vn, vc/hpd (Venice, 1729)", this would at the very least, be another unauthorized print, so it should possibly be compared to other sets to see if it can be put under its proper opus number. Interestingly, the first of the sets of violin concerti in the works list has no opus number, but was published in Paris, c.1745.
