Misc. Comments

Wikipedia-no gives 1896 for date (so removing possibly interesting but irrelevant historical curio :) ) but see below.

Vn/piano version published by 1906- the Musikalisches Wochenblatt has an advertisement for it that year. Possibly earlier.

  • Chandos recording - has downloadable PDF with a brief essay about this piece written by Øyvin Dysband (including the fact that the orchestration was done in 1903). (It's (c)2010 but am not quoting from it, just using facts from it. Unfortunately 'date of first publication of orchestral version' is not one of them.)

The theme of the central section is Åsmund Frægdegjæva (No. 42 in Lindeman's collection). It was also used by Johan Svendsen in his Norwegian Rhapsody No.3, Op.21 (1876).
