|The differences between
Bruckner's autograph and the first printed edition of 1899 are a graphic
demonstration of what drastic changes were made for the sake of bringing
Bruckner's music into step with the orchestral sound prevalent at the time.
The critical report is evidence of the intensity with which, throughout his
life, Bruckner devoted himself to giving his works their final form and shape,
paying attention even to the smallest details as he forged the musical texts
which he intended to be binding for posterity.
