Composition completed in Mannheim on November 17, 1834. The work is claimed to have been published by Diabelli by 1856 (see: Die Componisten der neueren Zeit, Vol.39, 1856) but I have been unable to locate any notification of it in the various Hofmeister publications up through the 1881 Handbuch. Also, Max Chop claims the work to have been assigned either Op.46 or 54 (see: Zeitgenössische Tondichter. Studien und Skizzen. Neue Folge) and also gives the publisher as Diabelli ("ebenda", that is, same as the 2nd symphony - in several sources claimed to have been published by Diabelli - and the oratorio "Moses".)
