With its Bohemian echoes and thematic diversity, Symphony No. 8 enjoys a special status among lovers of Antonin Dvorak's music.

For a long time, the performance material for this work has been notorious for its myriad mistakes. For his edition of Dvorak's 8th Symphony, editor Jonathan Del Mar was therefore faced with the task of making comprehensive corrections. He has taken into account the engraver's copy, which was actually discovered in a trash bin at Novello's in 1964. Its title page bears the words"Copied from my original manuscript"in Dvorak's hand. This source proves that many of the readings contained in the first edition and faithfully adopted in all subsequent editions, were simply slips of the copyist's pen.

This study score edition is complemented by the full score and orchestral parts (BA10418).
