Edouard Lalo's "Symphonie espagnole" was heretofore inadequately edited: the two first editions (piano reduction and score) differ considerably from one another, since the composer continued to hone his work after the completion of the engraver's master for the piano reduction, and he even made certain compositional additions. Christian Rudolf Riedel's new urtext edition eliminates all these inadequacies and inconsistencies. Moreover, the editor was able to base himself for the first time ever on the previously unknown autograph of the solo part. The discovery of this source was nothing less than sensational. Lalo, who was an outstanding violinist in his own right, had meticulously marked up his manuscript with the help of the arrangement by Pablo de Sarasate, to whom Lalo had dedicated the work and entrusted the world premiere. This new source situation allowed for the preparation of an urtext edition that corresponds throughout to the "author's final version." The composer's piano part, which sometimes resembles a short score, was revised by the editor, who rendered it easier to perform and supplemented the ten measures that had been missing until now in the introduction to the fifth movement."As benfits this publishing house, the handy 6x9 inch score is meticulously edited and is a welcome aid to study of the whole works." (Mary Nemet, Strings).
