Misc. Comments

This may be the work recorded on Naxos 8.570320 as B.103 (they give two finales, hence perhaps our B.103A? Ah, no, not the whole story- B.103A is actually B.103 somewhat revised in the first two movements, and with an entirely new finale.) Will have a listen and compare our work with theirs, both versions. It's clear from the notes that 1788 refers to date of publication. ("All the earliest printed editions ... before July 1788".) Boyer issued both B.103 and B.103A, both in 1788, and according to Allan Badley without mentioning in its advertisements that the works they were releasing were almost the same piece :)...

There is also a recording on Naxos of an arrangement (called "concerto for two pianos") of B.103a for piano duet. (B.103 with its original finale, on the other hand, can take 35 minutes, as the finale of B.103, in the Naxos recording, takes almost 12 minutes (unusual for a violin concerto in the 1780s...) against 6 minutes for the new finale he composed when he revised the work.)

(There is another recording bringing B.103a together with the original finale of B.103, on Hungaroton CD HCD32241, though it arguably has them mislabeled (103A for 103 and vice versa)! A recording of _all_ of 103 unrevised rather than just its expansive finale to add to the revised first two movements might be of interest more to Pleyel specialists but might still be of interest. - ES)
