CommentsOn 17 July 1957 Bohuslav Martinů signed an agreement with SNKLHU for the second edition; this agreement retains the paragraph that requires the author of thw work to take part in the proofreading free of charge. Although the score is practically identical in from to the first edition (PS1a, b), this second edition does include several corrections that concur with those in PS1bA1. However, it is not clear in what way Martinů sent the amendments to the publishing house. The bar lines are filled in on p. 1, bb. 5 and 6 in the Pf. B. 48 of the Vla on p. 12 bears the corrected notes g and f. B. 189 in the Alto solo has a corrected e♭'. The missing octave is added to bb. 227-34 in the Pf m.d. B. 274 is corrected to e♭'. The other mistakes were left uncorrected, however (see BurM 1959-02-09), for example bar 119 in the S solo, where both PS1a, b and PS2 erroneously state g' (instead of a' in A). Unlike the later editions, the second one was not published with a list of corrections. Presumably it is for these reasons that the subsequent edition of the score from 1965 is again designated as 2nd edition.
