The violin part of the first version was edited by Antonio Brosa. The first batch of revisions was made in October 1950, and included some minor structural changes and more extensive alterations to the violin part. In 1954 further revisions to the violin part (removing much of Brosa's editing and simplifying some of the figuration) were made with the help of Manoug Parikian. In spring 1965, during editorial work on the proofs of the miniature score, the longer version of the last movement was reinstated.
