"Oh the tempi, how terrible!" Dvořák often complained bitterly about tempi, and with good reason, as the respected Dvořák expert Klaus Döge discovered while preparing his edition of the Eighth.

The composer's conducting score, which also served as the engraver's copy, has resurfaced again and offers sensational findings for performers. The copy contains an entire series of added tempo entries that were not all incorporated into the first edition. Döge's edition now sheds light into the previously misleading tempo markings.
Breitkopf's new edition is also the first performing material to this key work of late-romantic orchestral literature that can be purchased in its entirety as sales material. Following the New World Symphony, the Slavonic Dances op. 46 and the Violoncello Concerto, Dvořák's fourth major orchestral work is now available in Breitkopf's customary high quality.
