From the LA Times, November 19 1987: "It wasn't bad reviews, but bad housekeeping that kept Reynaldo Hahn's Violin Concerto from public performance for the last 60 years. That will change tonight when Henryk Szeryng, the Polish-born violinist from Mexico who discovered the long-lost score in a musty old Venezuelan library, performs the work with the Atlanta Symphony. The concerto was performed publicly once--in Paris in 1928--before the score disappeared, only to resurface after Hahn died in 1947. Misplaced again, the score was rediscovered by the 69-year-old Szeryng in December, 1984, but illness kept him from performing the piece until now."
Full score was published in 1999, it seems(? or may only be available for rent as noted @ D-NB), along with a reprint of the reduced score. Music Sales Classical gives "both" but this may mean Rent for full score and sale for reduced score- one needs to find out more specifically.
