Edited by Bodo Koenigsbeck. This work was first released by Max Seifert in 1932 as Mozart's "Second Bassoon Concerto". Scholars have disputed this attribution to Mozart, and Ernst Hess put forward the thesis that it must be a composition by Devienne, citing as his reasoning the concordance of numerous music examples between the concerto and the Six Duos Concertantes. A full orchestral score is available HERE. The set of parts is available on hire directly from the publisher.
