Thanks... Never heard or seen it performed, I knew it existed because of the "related items'' option at sheet music plus.

Greetings,
I belive it was Menuhin who dug it up. the Peters edition has his bowings and fingerings.Worth studying.
Cheers,

I have Gidon Kremer's recording of this on DG paired with the Mendelssohn concerto for violin piano & strings. It's the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra & Martha Argerich on piano. Great CD
