Published - also in orchestral arrangement - by Ricordi (edited by Malipiero) in 1962. ("Concerto in sib maggiore per 2 flauti, 2 oboi, fagotto, archi e cembalo F. 12. n. 44 / Antonio Vivaldi ; a cura di Gian Francesco Malipiero".) Initially listed by Fanna under the multiple-soloist concertos (book XII) rather than the string sinfonias (XI), because the above file was believed to represent the work's original instrumentation. (Do we know on what evidence it is now listed among the string sinfonias instead?)
