- Key "in D", but mode is deliberately not specified (for reasons that become clear within seconds of the beginning of the piece.)
- Originally titled "Sonatine" on title page of autograph score; Hindemith consistently referred to the piece as "für Klavier und Violine." Numbered Op.11 No.3 before publication. Autograph manuscript discovered after publication in SW V/6; see SW V/7, pp. 166-68 for a description. Occasionally referred to as his violin sonata "No.2" in some older sources, but never by Hindemith himself.
