In 1929 Sibelius sent some small pieces to the New York publisher Carl Fischer for consideration. Included among these was the Suite for Violin and String Orchestra, to which he had assigned the opus number 117.

The Suite for Violin and String Orchestra represents the culmination point in a series of works written for violin and orchestra which started with the serenades op. 69 and continued
with the Six Humoresques opp. 87 & 89. Together these works bear witness to the composer's deep insight into the instrumental possibilities of the violin. In these works, more limited in formal scope than the Violin Concerto though they be, the voice of the solo violin - Sibelius' second mother-tongue - unites with the orchestral writing of a mature and experienced symphonist. The reduction and solo part are published together for the first time.
Sibeliuksen ns. Ainolan hiljaisuuden aikana syntyi pikkukappaleita. Yksi näistä on opusnumeron 117 saanut "Sarja viululle ja jousiorkesterille". Se on hyväntuulista musiikkia suuren mestarin kynästä, varmaa viulismia, olihan viulu säveltäjän oma soitin. Teos julkaistaan nyt ensimmäisen kerran pianosäestyksen kanssa.
