As with most of Schumann's duos for solo instrument and piano, the "Pieces in Folk Style", originally for cello and piano, were also published for an alternative instrument. The publisher expected greater circulation and a higher turnover with an additional edition for violin. Apart from a few changes necessitated by the instrument, there was a series of substantial ones in nos. 1 and 5, which partly also concern the piano part. Thus we can be confident that the version for violin was undertaken by Schumann.
This edition includes both marked and unmarked string parts.
