This is the slightly less famous concerto that Henri Casadesus attempted to publish under a well-known composer's name. Mr. Casadesus was discovered to have wrongly attributed his own compositions to Mozart, Haendel, and J.C. Bach, and even Gossec, likely in attempt to gain fame. He had done so more often with viola pieces, given the limited viola repertoire in the time, once claiming Camille Saint-Saens had gifted him a long-lost score of the famed Viola concerto in C minor by J.C. Bach. This concerto is referred to as the Handel/Casadesus concerto, though once known as 'Concerto in B minor for viola and orchestral accompaniment: Bass realization by Henri Casadesus'.
