Complete Critical Edition of the Works of Leoš Janá ek.
Over the years Janá ek’s œuvre has increasingly received therecognition it so richly merits and performances of his works are becoming more and more frequent. This development is, however, offset by a manuscript tradition so disorderly that some of Janá ek’s workscontinue, as before, to be played in versions which are heavily adapted, corrupt or otherwise contrary to the composer’s intentions. Thus, a critical edition of Janá ek’s music is indispensableforscholars and performers alike.
This editon presents an authentic printed text based on all available sources for each work. In addition to the musical text, each volume also contains a critical report (Czech / German), arendition of deleted or rejected versions, and a comprehensive appendix of facsimiles.
