The enigma that is Schubert's arpeggione sonata - written for a "newly invented" instrument that would fairly disappear from public consciousness by the time the Sonata first saw publication. Written in 1824 for an instrument that came into being a year earlier, the Sonata would see its first edition in 1871. By then, the publisher assumed that the piece would thereafter be performed on cello, but editors Jost and Darmstadt have based their present edition upon the violin arrangement by Anton Diabelli, which pre-dated the first publication. Background notes describe the history of the work, and performance and critical notes address proper authentic performance.
