Bärenreiter’s new scholarly-critical edition of Op.87 edited by Christopher Hogwood is based on the score and parts from the first edition; where necessary he also consulted the autograph.
The first edition parts were engraved after the manuscript parts and not after the score. Here the readings of the legato phrasing and the dynamics more accurately reflect the composer’s intentions than in the first edition score.
