- There is an earlier, unpublished sonata movement which uses a lot of the material of this sonata.
- "1865, piano part lost, cello part extant"?
What's interesting is that if Enescu "released" his cello sonatas for publication in 1935 (a quote from Richard Whitehouse's notes to Naxos' recording), were no publishers interested until the 1950s (no.2) and 1988 (no.1)? I find that a little difficult to believe (not impossible, publishers being publishers and the market always being the market unfortunately, but...)
