Micro-review in the Atheneum suggests that the music (the first edition? the music itself?) is not "correct"(noting that the music has been discussed at more length elsewhere in detail - I suspect they mean the first edition not corresponding to what was heard at the premiere? that is the edition in vocal score at NLA.)
