As an avid fan of Auber, especially the overtures it's great to see Naxos inaugurating a series -

A piece is worth your attention, and is itself for you praiseworthy, if it makes you feel you have not wasted your time over it. (SG, 1922)

In his biography, it is stated that one of Auber's first big hits in Paris was a violin concerto. I wonder whatever became of it?

I'm rather surprised. The Violin Concerto sounds like it's scored only for string orchestra. I wonder if that's how Auber originally orchestrated it, or if they only had a piano reduction to work with.

Fleisher has score and parts which are given as: solo violin, flute, 2 oboes, 2 bassoons, 2 horns and strings.
The Kalmus edition of the concerto (c. 1940) is held by a number of libraries, including NYPL. The score can also be downloaded from IMSLP.

Few composers have had such a fall from grace as poor old Auber. Is there any other composer with a station named after him? Yet his music has practically falled from sight entirely.

However the violin concerto is orchestrated, from the excerpts it sounds like they only used a string orchestra.

The first movement is now on YouTube and one can definitely hear the wind instruments in the opening tutti. I will listen to the whole movement later, but thought I should post now to set Jim's mind at rest.
