Dedication according to RISM.
Bärwolf lists two violin concertos and gives composition dates 1836 Paris, and premiere date of 1837, Brussels for this one, and 1839 (unfinished)/1869 October ("refait en octobre") for the 2nd concerto in A (it's left unclear whether in doing it over Hanssens actually -did- _finish_ concerto 2 too- in another place Bärwolf says only one concerto- but on the other hand he writes that he made a reduction of the 2nd concerto (as he did of the first) so perhaps it does exist at least in ms.)
