Misc. Comments

May have been first published by J. Rieter-Biedermann in a (not very scholarly by modern standards- changing dynamics, articulations, adding notes in another composition (by WF Bach) that he edited...) edition by Johannes Brahms, according to a summary of an article by Mauser (1983)) - the edition being published in 1864. (That btw would be WorldCat this edition, published indeed Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1864), p.175.)
Published as a pair with Violin Sonata in C minor, H.514
