SCORES

Although it is generally known that a good many of Bruckner’s works, his symphonies in particular, exist in more than one version, there is frequently considerable confusion as to which version is contained in any particular score.

The list on these pages is an attempt to present the facts about these publications in tabular form, and is based on a comparison of the scores. While no bibliographical detail can be given in the list, it should be remembered that many of the title-pages are seriously misleading in relation to the contents. They may give information which is either wrong, or is contradicted by the preface. The words ‘newly revised’ may mean that the score contains editorial changes which have not been indicated as such.

It is also important to know that, although two publishers may use the same plate number when issuing the same work, the music of each is not necessarily identical.

The tradition of the Anton Bruckner Collected Works Edition dates back to the 1930s.

An international panel of Bruckner experts will oversee the preparation of a uniform series of volumes in light of the most up-to-date editorial and performance practices as well as the most recent research. Leading Bruckner scholars from around the world have been engaged to edit the individual volumes with the practical requirements of performers and scholars
