Nielsen composed the Fantasistykker for oboe and piano shortly after having taken up the position as second violinist in the Royal Danish Orchestra. According to Emilie Demant Hatt's list of Nielsen's early compositions the two movements were completed 30 November 1889 and 9 March 1890, respectively. During summer 1890 Nielsen revised the work, and in the autumn it was finally published. It appears from Emilie Demant Hatt's list that the Romance was originally conceived for organ and oboe.
