    In other editions these crescendo-diminuendo signs are centred on the last quaver in the bar here and in later appearances of the figure, although the Urtext editions suggest a degree of uncertainty about their precise position, especially later in the movement. Whether Schnirlin's realignment of the dynamic signs (made all the clearer by his replacement of the double-dotted minim of the original edition with the present notation) was based upon textual evidence in the Simrock archives, information from his teacher, Joseph Joachim, or simply upon his own judgment remains unclear at present.
