Recorded, on the Chandos CD label, with his 7th and 8th concertos. Given Op.16 traditionally (and on the Chandos recording); Op.26 belongs now to Concerto 3 in D major of ca.1801 (Lindeman, p.101.)

A "Deuxième grand concerto" Op.26 dedicated to Miss Louisa Scott was published by Naderman by 1803 (see the Journal typographique et bibliographique, volume 5, no.43, p.368, dated 24 Thermidor An X - so, 12 August, 1802). Likewise the Breitkopf & Härtel edition of 1818 uses the Op.26 number.
