It has long been known that certain solo passages in Dvorįk's autograph score were actually written by the cellist Hanus Wihan. Bärenreiter's edition now reveals that some details in the orchestral parts are also in his writing, showing just how closely the two musicians were working together.
The editor Jonathan Del Mar has painstakingly examined all the surviving sources, including two that have hitherto been either ignored or crucially undervalued, in order to produce an authoritative edition which restores Dvorįk's final and definitive version of the solo cello part. This differs, in details, in almost every bar from the version found in all other modern editions, while hundreds of corrections have also been made to the orchestral parts.
Includes cello part and a piano reduction of the score.
This edition is an important teaching tool that includes useful practice tips by Daniel Morganstern. The orchestral accompaniment is condensed into a second cello, making it an ideal companion for lessons and learning. No piano accompaniment is included.
