Misc. Notes Plate here is "H.", which says "post-nationalization", Editio Supraphon plate- see relevant table. Copyright date may lack possibly because of the absence of the relevant scanned page (cover/title page with the copyright and date, e.g.) rather than absence of information, so "n.d." has been omitted until more information can be acquired. WorldCat strongly suggests 1958 is the date of the parts reprinted by I.M. Co. here. PDF split of Daphnis's "Complete Parts" file (#380530) by Sallen112.

Misc. Comments

All Music Guide refers to this as a "suite" for wind sextet, but the title "suite" is theirs, not the composer's, I believe. (Contrast a work such as e.g. Zemlinsky's 4th string quartet (1936) where "suite" is indeed on some of the autograph manuscript material, though in that particular case not on the first published score of (!) 1977 (which consulted only some of that material- parts, not score, iirc.))

Suite: is on the Hudebni Matice 1947 score, too. Whether Janacek used the term/whether it's on the 1925 score - WorldCat seems to suggest so.
