Misc. Comments

The autograph manuscript of this rondo was sold by Mozart’s widow to the publisher André, who did not publish the work as the last page of the manuscript was missing. He therefore sold it to buyers in England, and it eventually came into the possession of Sterndale Bennett. In 1838 Cipriani Potter made an arrangement of the entire work for solo piano, which included an ending of his own devising.

The manuscript was eventually dismembered into many fragments, which have resurfaced from time to time: Alfred Einstein could only locate two leaves (bars 136–71) and had to rely on the reduction by Potter for the remainder; some time later by 1956 A. Hyatt King had discovered another three leaves in England, allowing Charles Mackerras and Paul Badura-Skoda to create a performing version in 1963 incorporating one further full leaf and another partial one that they uncovered, accounting for bars 1–78, 118–32, and 136–71. The Piano concertos, volume 8 in the New Mozart Edition (NMA V/15/8, published 1960) includes a facsimile of bars 155–61 (Vorspann, page XXXV) and a partial reconstruction utilising the arrangement by Potter (pp. 173–87).

Finally, Alan Tyson recovered four of the last seven leaves in a miscellany in the British Library. These had been missing since before 1799, and represent bars 225–69 (Potter’s arrangement diverges here and finishes after 252 bars).

The work is dated on the first page di Wolfgango Amadeo Mozart mpr / Vieña gli 19 d'Octobre 1782.

f.1 (bars 1-22): sold by Sotheby's on 23 May 2017; whereabouts unknown.
