It was written for, dedicated to and first performed by Robert Hausmann, who had popularised the First Sonata, and who would the following year be given the honour of premiering the Double Concerto in A minor with Joseph Joachim.
There are four movements:
Allegro passionato in F minor, with a more songlike trio section in F major.
Allegro molto; a rondo.
