Misc. Comments

The manuscript was held at the Preussische Staatsbibliotek in Berlin, disappeared in 1945, and turned up again at the Biblioteka Jagiellonska (Krakow, Poland). An urtext edition of this rediscovered manuscript is available from Hofmeister, ed. Tobias Glöckler (WorldCat).

Possibly parts published before the full score (André, 1822).
