Over the years Janacek's oeuvre has increasingly received the recognition it so richly merits and performances of his works are becoming more and more frequent. This development is, however, offset by a manuscript tradition so disorderly that some of Janacek's works continue, as before, to be played in versions which are heavily adapted, corrupt or otherwise contrary to the composer's intentions. Thus, a critical edition of Janacek's music is indispensable for scholars and performers alike.

This editon presents an authentic printed text based on all available sources for each work. In addition to the musical text, each volume also contains a critical report (Czech / German), a rendition of deleted or rejected versions, and a comprehensive appendix of facsimiles.
