The version recorded by Tomasz Kamieniak for Acte Préalable (AP0184) differs in many places from the 1882 one. As usual with J. Wieniawski, there must be at least two versions: an earlier (original) and a later (revised) one.

Even if the 1882 dedicatee "César Hochstetter" is actually Cäsar Hochstetter (1863-1928), no way could he be the original dedicatee, because the opus number suggests 1859-60 ca.
