    Difficulty Level:
  • 2008-06-17 00:00:00.0 Masterwork printed poorly

    There are a couple of corrections to notes/rhythms, and the page turns are not convenient in the last movement.

  • 2007-08-03 00:00:00.0 Get the Peters Urtext edition instead.

    There are problems with this edition of the Debussy quartet. The most significant problem is that the parts are poorly printed -- it seems to be some kind of a photoreproduction of the original Durand edition. The notes are not fully black, and the printed numbers are often a little hard...

    to read. More minor problems include some obvious typos (like a slur over notes in a pizzicato passage in the viola part) and a very annoying page turn in the second violin part. The CF Peters urtext edition is better printed, more accurately edited, and more thoughtfully laid out. It's worth the extra money.
