Unlike the first Violin sonata, this wasn't recorded by Steen-Nøkleberg.
Recorded on Naxos CD (8.572460) with the first Sonata. However, the score of Richault differs in many parts from the recorded version. The recording omisses some bars and even pages of the score (e.g. piano variation in the exposition of the first movement, though it appears in the recapitulation; some parts of the 3rd and 5th variations in the Finale etc.), but sometimes it is more elaborated: introduction (Largo) is much longer in the recorded version.
Naxos CD doesn't have a "World première recording" note, so there should have been made at least one more commercial recording.
Oscar II's predecessor was Charles IV (reigned 1859-1872), so this is clearly dedicated to Oscar II, whose reign began in 1872 (yes, Charles IV was king when the work was composed, but works are generally dedicated when they are published.)
