There is two versions of this concerto. BOT. 85 : in C minor, with string quintet. No edition, only the manuscrit in Parma. BOT. 88 et 90 : en B minor, with piano. A lot of edition.
The orchestration was taken from Luck's Music Library, but their catalogue listing is arranged by Ludwin. It is not known whether Ludwin altered Bottesini's original orchestration, so this is a guide only.
