[+] Plath, Wolfgang. "Zur Echtheitsfrage bei Mozart." In Mozart Jahrbuch 1971/72, 19-36. Salzburg: Internationale Stiftung Mozarteum, 1973.

The horn part of the second movement of Mozart's Horn Concerto in E-flat, K. 447, is essentially identical to that of Michael Haydn's Romance for horn and string quartet of 1795. As an alternative to Mary Rasmussen's explanation, Plath suggests that a horn player, who possessed only the horn part of the second movement of Mozart's concerto, prevailed upon Haydn to write an accompaniment.
