||1853 revised restored a scherzo and retitled as Piano Sonata No.3
According to Daverio, there were three versions-
- 5-movement sonata composed June 1836
- Revised version published September 1836 (both scherzos dropped, new finale, retitled Concert sans orchestre)
- Second (also?) and very substantial revision published in (but perhaps undertaken before) 1853, (very considerable revision especially of the first movement); entitled Grande sonate, with the second scherzo of the June 1836 sonata restored (but not the first - see Scherzo, H/K WoO 5,1). According to Daverio, throughout all this only the variations movement (on a theme of Clara Wieck (later Clara Schumann) remained basically untouched throughout all the revisions.)
