The first publication in the Australiana series is Charles Edward Horsley’s Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in D minor, opus 29 (1849), edited by Richard Divall. Horsley (1822–1876) was a London-born German-trained composer who began an extended and influential stay in Australia in 1860. This work was composed in London in 1849 and was thought to be lost until performance parts in the Johann Secundus Kruse papers in the National Library of Australia were identified and edited by Divall for this important new critical edition.
