While working on the composition and publication of the Romances op. 22, Clara Schumann was in close contact with two great contemporary violinists on matters of fingering, bowing, and phrasing: she consulted Wilhelm Joseph von Wasielewski while completing an early version of Romance no. 1, while Joseph Joachim was involved in a later, complete version and the preparation of the first edition.

Jacqueline Ross' scholarly-critical edition for Bärenreiter Urtext, 2021, is the first to include, in addition to the first edition, the numerous manuscript sources that survive today, such as the composer's draft manuscript, presentation autographs for Wasielewski and Joachim, as well as copyists' parts once owned by the two violinists.

This edition has two separate parts for the violin, allowing its use in two ways: first, as a straightforward Urtext edition: and second, as an edition informed by historical performing practice, supported by the detailed Performing Practice Commentary on nineteenth-century violin and piano technique.
