Navigation etc.

This work has been recorded on MDG, and at least can be heard there (I don't have the recording and haven't heard it myself). It was published by Janet et Cotelle for cello and strings (ca.1813?). - Schissel (Stowell suggests instead that the 6 concertos were composed sometime in the 1770/80s-1790s or so though published later.)

(In any case, even his earlier concertos are for cello and strings with winds etc. optional, like a number of - maybe even the typical - early to mid classical-era concerto (Mozart's concerto accompaniment generally until piano concerto no.14, for instance, though with no.14 it's probably unwise to omit the wind parts even though one is still allowed to do so. The performance we have of that work uploaded at this time is indeed just for piano and strings :) )

Published 1813: Publication noted in the Bibliographie de la France 1e série, 2e année, Nº 46, 12 Novembre 1813, p.499, r.464. (one assumes the same Duport is meant.)
