      The music is all there, but I haven't tried performing from it yet - I gather that some users have been critical of some slips and details. I haven't yet tried the CD, but I look forward to having this when I start practising the vocal part. So far I'm pleased with what I've got. I specially wanted this score now because I'm going to a complete performance of the work soon and will take this score with me.
      I would have liked to see the words / poems set out separately from the music - with translation alongside - as in the Barenreiter edition of "Die Schone Mullerin" - which I have also bought recently.

      Beware. This edition is dreadful! I opened it at Rast and found the ties were missing from the first few chords. The notes are terribly spaced with semi-quavers stretched out or squashed according to computer choice (presumably) rather than to help the pianist. It also has odd little editorial staccatos sprinkled about. I'll be returning it and forking out the £33 for the Barenreiter edition instead.
