Der Henle Verlag legt eine Neuausgabe der Suite von Charles Marie Widor vor, die sehr zu begrüßen ist. (...) Das leidige Problem des Blätterns im vierten Satz ist bestens gelöst durch eine weitere Seite zum Ausklappen.

nmz, 2016

Da die handschriftliche Quelle fehlt, bildet die überarbeitete Fassung die Quelle für die Urtextausgabe bei Henle. Sie bereichert die Palette der bisherigen Editionen auch durch ihre Gestaltung, so ist zum Beispiel der Notendruck übersichtlich und gut lesbar, ausserdem mit ausklappbaren Seiten erweitert, um "gutes Blättern zu ermöglichen" wie der Verlag schreibt.

Schweizer Musikzeitung, 2015

Die ansprechende, musikwissenschaftlich aufgearbeitete Neuausgabe des Henle-Verlages lässt wenig Wünsche offen. Sie bietet ein gutes Vorwort und angehängten kritischen Bericht, einen klaren Notensatz auf schönem Papier, eine Solostimme zum Ausklappen ohne Wendestellen, Fingersätze für die Klavierstimme und vor allem eine hervorragende, anspruchsvolle spätromantische Komposition, die in beiden Stimmen gleichermaßen ausgearbeitet ist und viel Raum für fantasievolle Interpretationen lässt.

Tibia, 2015

Die Urtext-Ausgabe aus dem Henle-Verlag überzeugt durch ein gut lesbares Notenbild, und in der Solostimme bietet sie für den blättertechnisch nicht einfach umzusetzenden vierten Satz eine gelungene Lösung.

Das Liebhaberorchester, 2014

Die Henle-Ausgabe bietet neben einem modernen und ansprechenden Notentext alles, was man von einer Urtext-Ausgabe erwarten darf: schönes Layout, ein ausführlicher Kritischer Bericht und ein informatives Vorwort, das die Neugierde auf Widors übrige Kammermusik zu wecken versteht.
