  • December 17, 2008 This is the correct score!

    Ginastera wrote this quartet in 1958 and then revised it sometime about 10 years later. Most scores have the old version, but I was unbelievably relieved when I received this that it is the final edition! It still has some errors, but for the most part it is very reliable...

    -- certainly more reliable than the parts are a lot of the time. If you're going to work on this piece, this is the score you want. (If you don't know the piece, it is absolutely awesome and I highly recommend checking it out, but -- I say this as a professional -- it's also insanely difficult.)
