Only in recent years has Schumann's Violin Fantasy Op. 131 begun to make its way into the repertoire of renowned soloists. Written in 1853, the work was commissioned by the 22-year-old Joseph Joachim, who enthusiastically gave his blessing and approval as a violinist to the first edition.
Joachim also remained faithful to the work in later years as well, as we can see from the concert programs of the last years of his life. The original edition for violin and piano has long been out of print. The music text, which was examined by both Schumann and Joachim in its time, has now been subjected to a text-critical revision, since Joachim Draheim has consulted autographs, the engraver's copy and the first print for his new edition, and corrected some minor irregularities.
