A note about the dedicatee: Fritz Struss (b.1847, d. after 1912) was a pupil of Joseph Joachim, a violinist, violin teacher (see Sibelius: 1865-1905 by Erik Tawaststjerna, p.312 - as a few sources note, Struss taught Sibelius violin briefly) and a composer, whose compositions included at least two violin concertos (his op. 4 in A minor, op. 9 in D) and at least 11 other works with opp.nos. by 1901. He was also the dedicatee of works by Franz Poenitz.
