A note on Ernst composing the Studies

There is very little information about Ernst’s composition of the Studies, but the following note suggests the period when he was hard at work on them. I suspect ‘short studies’ is just journalistic inaccuracy: since they were published in April 1864, the composition of these long and complex works must already have been well advanced by October 1863:

Herr Ernst has been busy over a set of short studies for violin.

Leeds Intelligencer, 17/10/63, p.3
