    A new edition of Fauré's nocturnes has long been needed, to clean up literally hundreds of old misprints and dubieties. Roy Howat, a noted French music specialist, has compared all known manuscripts and prints from Fauré's lifetime, including a few of Fauré's own printed copies showing numerous written corrections by him that never made it into the 1924 Hamelle edition,along with some piano rolls recorded by Fauré, and memoirs and scores marked up by pianists who worked with him. Includes a preface which incorporates some performing advice that can be traced back to Fauré, anddetailed critical commentary.
