News & Comments

Many thanks to Richard for notifying publication defects, which I corrected immediately. The oboe part has been included in the score (third movement), but I didn't find missing notes in the cello part (score and parts). Printing problems?

Great to see this wonderful piece transcribed, thank you. Just noticed as well that the oboe part is missing in the score's third movement and part of the cello solo is missing in the first movement. This error doesn't appear to have affected the parts which have everything.
