All conducting scores and orchestral parts are thus obtainable exclusively from Breitkopf & Hartel. The piano reductions of Brahms' solo concertos and the study scores (,,Studien-Editionen) remain within the G. Henle Verlag and can be ordered there.

The publishers Henle and Breitkopf & Hartel are continuing their collaboration, now with Brahms, by publishing the performance material of the double concerto. Brahms's last work with orchestra was published in the new Brahms Complete Edition in 2002, whereby the editor was able to base himself on newly accessible sources. Of particular interest are the additional performance instructions for the solo violin and solo cello, which were gathered from the first edition of the solo parts. These indications were supplied by the soloists of the first performance, Joseph Joachim and Robert Hausmann. No doubt authorized by Brahms, they communicate valuable insights into the performance practice of the time. The new material also contains a part in which the solo violin and cello are notated one above the other. The trio edition for violin, violoncello and piano (EB 6040), which was made by Brahms himself, has proven itself for chamber performances; it continues to be available.

The full score is a conductor's dream: big, bold, and beautifully laid out on glare-free bluff paper. (Strings)
