Primary Sources information about holograph manuscript for piano solo of 5 of these works at Northwestern University Library (may be undated. 1855 date is sourced to "W. Hopkins, The solo piano works of R. Volkmann, in Music east and west (Pendragon Press, 1981).")

Navigation etc.

First composed (1855) and published (1856) for piano solo but considered to be meant as a piece for piano duet - which is confusing and requires explanation.
