Misc. Notes This is not a scientific critical edition, just an engraving making for study purpose. The source is the set of parts available on IMSLP [Paris: Cousineau, Vve Daullé, n.d.]. The parts, as usual for that time, are not very consistent regarding articulation and dynamics: these were made uniform by comparison of the different parts. The only major issue was in Horn I part, mvt. II, mm. 8-11, where an octave doubling of Horn II (occurring in other measures of the same movement) is apparently missing; it has been here restored in small notes.
