Talk:String Quartet No.15 in D minor, K.421/417b (Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus)

Mozart-Rosinack K 421 (Rondeau edition) - Errata:

Only wrong notes are listed (almost all are transcription errors from Rosinack's manuscript, many caused by Rosinack's propensity to place his noteheads a little low). Deviations in phrasing and dynamics are too numerous to list and far from Mozarts original even in Rosinack's manuscript.
