The Revisions of Atar Arad, Csaba Erdélyi,Peter Bartók, and Donald Maurice
This chapter examines in depth the revisions of Atar Arad, Csaba Erd'lyi, Peter Bartók, and Donald Maurice with reference to the overall chronology of the revisions, the degree of revision, and cross-influence between revisionists. The revisions are systematically compared with Tibor Serly's version and also with each other, under categories of structure, orchestration, tempo, phrasing, and pitches in the viola part. Mention is made of the cultural and musical background of the revisionists and to what degree those factors influenced musical decisions. While for the most part the comparisons are objective observations, some judgments on the relative success of decisions taken by the revisionists are made, including retrospective reservations about some decisions in the author's own unpublished revision.
