Misc. Notes Typeset with Finale 2009. Update with corrected key signature in the Trio 03-22-15. For booklet printing page 2 (=first page of music) of Viola 1 should be printed on a separate page.
Based on a manuscript set of parts at D-DO (Sign: Mus.Ms.1369) scheduled for digital release (PPN: 339974311). The many inconsistencies in phrasing and dynamics and a few wrong notes were corrected according to the NMA-edition
Rosinack played on an advanced oboe with 6 keys still preserved in Donaueschingen - the many top f-notes in the manuscript may reflect the unusual capabilities of this instrument.
