Editorial Rules

For the critical (on a base of studium of all available sources musicologically treated and commented) form of the resulting musical score, we work in accordance with the Editors' Principles and Directives issued in a 1979 book by Jarmil Burghauser and Milan Šolc. The compilation of critical editions of Janáček's work has begun in the late 1970's by at that time state-owned publisher Supraphon in cooperation with Bärenreiter, GmbH.

(Performance editions are identical in notography with the critical issues, but do not include publishers' notes and annotations.)
