The incipit for this Concerto appeared in Breitkopf's catalogue of 1763 as an Oboe Concerto by Adam. The only survivng source, however is the one above, which attributes the work to Bernasconi and ascribes the solo part to the flute. Oboe is probably the original instrument, as in this manuscript, Hautbois has been crossed out and replaced with Flauto Traverso.
