The Musician's Way
"In sum, by being aware of what type of edition we're working with, we can recognize whether we're interpreting a composer's idea or an editor's. We can then consult other sources, if necessary, to gauge the veracity of an edition and the likely intentions of an editor.
With that knowledge in hand, we can make wise, artistically responsible choices about the editions we use." ---c. 2009 Gerald Klickstein
