Editor Second edition (1929)
Friedrich Hermann Schneider (1860-1930) alleged editor*
Publisher. Info. Berlin: Russischer Musikverlag G.m.b.H., 1921**. Plate R.M.V. 197.
Reprinted London: Boosey & Hawkes, 1948. Plate B. & H. 16333.
Copyright
Misc. Notes *As discussed elsewhere, F.H. Schneider's "editorship" was a ruse to claim US copyright protection for Stravinsky and other composers who were ineligible for it at the time. However, this edition does contain numerous significant changes from the first edition and features a lengthy errata list at the end of the score. See "Key to Printed Editions" in the 2021 Critical Performing Edition (Serenissima Music)
**The copyright date was not changed from 1921 even though this edition appeared in 1929; it can be distinguished by the presence of Schneider's name.
