Violin Sonata No.2 of 3 (but the first, from 1902, is lost.)

Tempo indication of finale is as given on one of its recordings, and somewhat oversimplified (there are many tempo changes). The score we have uploaded is, additionally, of a revision, while the recording may be of the 1909 original, but those tempo changes seem to be common to both.
