The title of one early edition is 'Konzert für Violoncell und Orchester, op.44 : [1919]' suggesting the work may also have been composed as well as copyrighted and published in that year. Or just some doubt as to publication date despite the copyright, for some reason.

Performance mentioned in a July 1920 issue (page 228, 2nd of 2 July 1920 issues), Munich concerts, Neue Zeitschrift für Musik. The premiere if I read correctly. Not sure I got the date though, but further research may reveal that... - Schissel
