Birmingham Professional Violinist
- Special folding pages - sometimes Schubert doesn't give you any opportunity in which to turn a page!
This is real urtext, with every bar scrutinised as to its original source and articulation.
Very clear printing and spacing.
- Despite the supposed meticulous attention to detail, we have already found two serious misprints in the second violin part. One of them seems to be that bar 213 (first movement) has been repeated instead of the true bar 214! We haven't checked the the other three movements yet. Don't they have proof readers at Henle Edition?
The trouble with an urtext edition like this is that it is nowhere near ready to perform. I will have to go through it thinking of the best bowings and fingerings and put them in. This is where we need an edition with suggestions from some great string players... This was the only edition available to me.
