The autograph score to this concerto exists-British Library Add.28,970 (unusual with Viotti - the only other of his concertos to do so is no.28 of 1803/4), with watermark date 1794 - "not firm proof of its existence in that year, but at least a basis for the hypothesis that it was created around that time" (White, "From Vivaldi to Viotti: A History of the Early Classical Violin Concerto", p.335.)
