Specific composition date from Brown (2006), Louis Spohr: A Critical Biography, page 309. However, the composer entered it into his own worklist as "Written in March and April at the time of the glorious People's Revolution towards the Rebirth of Germany's Freedom, Unity and Greatness." (this was the Year of Revolutions 1848 after all.) so reference to Brown on this point unnecessary :) (Schissel)
Publication date 1850 from HMB.
