Description

The new critical edition of 'The Makropulos Affair' is thus mainly based on the most recent version that the composer himself had a hand in, but also takes into account some minor adjustments and the detailed scheme of dynamic markings worked out by the conductor of the first production, František Neumann, who implemented these changes in conjunction with Janácek. The present edition does not take into consideration any instrumental retouching carried out after the composer's death. On the other hand, in a few exceptional cases it does return to the autograph score - in places where it was noticed that the copyist had produced an incorrect transcription of the composer's manuscript, or where the copyist amended the notation in view of the technical capabilities of the Brno opera orchestra at the time. Important information relating to the tempo schemes adopted by František Neumann and Otakar Ostrcil, as well as practical advice from the leading Janácek conductor Sir Charles Mackerr
