Dies ist die für den praktischen Gebrauch geeignetste Ausgabe des Terzetts von Antonín Dvořák! Die Seiten sind vom Herausgeber so eingerichtet, dass man bis zum Ende des zweiten Satzes nicht umblättern muss, das Papier ist von stabiler Qualität und die Taktzahlen sind am Anfang jeder Linie gesetzt und zählen den Auftakt nicht mit. Keine der mir bekannten gedruckten Stimmen erfüllte in den vergangenen fünf Jahrzehnten alle diese Kriterien gleichzeitig. Der knappe Kritische Bericht zu dieser Urtext-Ausgabe zeugt von grosser Sorgfalt. ... Diese Ausgabe erleichtert jetzt auch die Probenarbeit und bannt alle Sorgen beim Umblättern.
