The tempo markings on BIS' and Olympia's recordings and the Farrenc edition are different than those on the surveyed existing manuscripts which for example have no tempo for the first movement and a different tempo for the finale... but they might conceivably match those on the manuscript at Leipzig- the "possible autograph" - which are not given in the description at RISM. The movement headers of the first edition of 1761 haven't been consulted yet and should be consulted also.
