J.B. Cramer published his Op. 35, a set of three sonatas for piano, in 1805. This rondo is the third movement of the third sonata in that set. In December 1806, Clementi, Banger, Hyde, Collard & Davis published various movements from Op. 35 as works unto themselves; this is thus the first edition of the rondo as a free-standing piece.
