With occasional autograph corrections, deletions and revisions including an 8-bar addition to the “Marcia turca” and autograph superscripts marking the different sections of the work: “[Parte] 1ma [bb.1-16]... [Parte] 2da [bb. 17-32]... [Parte] 3za [bb. 33-48]... [Parte] 4ta [bb. 49-63]... Marcia turca [bb. 64-86].”

With additional modern foliation in pencil and several manuscript annotations in both ink and pencil including an attestation of authenticity to upper right-hand corner by George Nikolaus von Nissen (“Von Mozart und seiner Handschrift”), incorrectly dated “1791” in the hand of Johann Anton André; “No 8” to upper left-hand corner in the hand of the so-called “Grauer Schreiber,” who participated in the ordering of Mozart’s estate; “gestochen” (printed) in another hand; and the pencilled number “74” to right-hand margin (corresponding to the position of the work in Mozart’s own thematic catalogue).
