Misc. Comments

Is this actually his violin concerto (published ca.1810 -see Letelllier's "Daniel-François-Esprit Auber: The Man and His Music"), merely transposed for cello by other hands? (If so, needs to be re-"instrumented" and re-tagged.) Incomplete parts are at BNF (see link) - "Fl, htb., 2 p. chacun, cl., 3 p., b.on, 4 p., le reste mq." (BNF has - at present undigitized? - this and the cello solo part of the 2nd cello concerto in edited/recopied manuscripts "d'après Riemann, édité sous le nom de : Jacques-Michel Hurel de Lamare".)

(Where is "1809" from? Did he compose his first cello concerto at the same time as his first violin concerto was published, more or less?...)

Auber did compose at least 3 cello concertos, though, and this might be one of them, if the tag Cello Concerto No.1 on the cover is accurate anyway. No.3 in B major (dedicated to Girod, and ms. found in the Belgian Royal Library) is described @ B-Br Mus Ms 384/1.
