Arranger Unknown
Publisher. Info. Paris: Sieber, n.d.(1786).
Misc. Notes Arranged as a 3-movement piano trio - the palindromic minuet is dropped. (So incomplete as an arrangement, but the conception was probably always to omit the minuet, given how many piano trios had only three movements in the 1770s and 80s?) (Gallica might have scans of the string parts.) About 1786 according to Hoboken's discussion of this collection of Sieber trio arrangements.
