    This edition IS the supposed "viola edition" of the pieces. Compared to the clarinet edition, there are many octave transpositions and other similar edits. Although some people might like the pieces as this edition portrays them, others might not, which is expected. But, in other Urtext editions, I'm used...

    to seeing ossia parts for suggestions the composer might have had, and those were absent here. In short, buy this edition if you want to play the piece as Brahms "supposedly" intended. If you want the piece to sound less awkward, you will have to edit the part yourself or purchase another edition. That being said, the edition itself looks beautiful, on high quality paper and with good space between the staves.

    caution: be careful that you order the right edition. a family member of mine actually placed my order and a accidentally ordered the viola edition (I returned it and bought the clarinet addition). The clarinet and viola editions look very similar, so make sure you are ordering the right one
