For the world premiere in London on 14 May 1832, however, he produced a fundamentally new version and honed further details until the first edition of the score was issued by Breitkopf & Härtel in 1835.
This first edition and the autograph of the final version it became accessible once again in 2002 are the principal sources for the present edition.
