Not listed in Grove. Possibly a doubtful attribution (many composers under the name Rosetti), or an arrangement of the Op.6 String Quartets (D9–14/IV:2).
Mentioned however in the Allgemeine Literatur-Zeitung, 1787, page 100, so whoever wrote it, Rosetti or someone else, published it in/ca. 1787. (as a publication from André - the Schott would be a later edition.)- Schissel
(Note that "piano" at the time of publication of course would probably be what we now call "fortepiano", to be picky... so if it doesn't sound quite right on the modern piano, don't blame the composer, is all I'm saying.)
The sonata no.1 in D, at least, is listed as MurR. D32 (see) and one presumes? is accepted as authentic. That in A is given MurR. D33 (see ). Comment in RISM applying to both: "According to MurR: in most prints of other publishers than A. Zatta & figli as trio for keyb, vl and vlc".
RISM-online doesn't seem to list the 3rd; the D major no.4 seems to be the same (in incipits at least) as the trio Op.5/3 in D, MurR D31 (see ♭ with trio Op.5/2 in E♭, Murray D30 (see ), etc. (though there are only 3 Op.5 trios so it makes sense that there are only 3 such correspondences. Still, according to RISM, at least some of the first three also exist as trios too.)); likewise compare no.5 in E
