Description

As with other Elgar works, modern editions of the Serenade have always suffered from an enormous number of inconsistancies between the score and parts and unclear divisi and unison passages. Bärenreiter has clarified these discrepancies, drawing on Elgar's version of the work for piano four hands (the original version) and the recently discovered autograph manuscript of the first movement. This edition also contains a facsimile showing the original ending of the third movement as well as an informative foreword and a critical commentary.
