    This fine edition consists of the two violin parts, each printed in a separate folio (no score is provided). Be aware that the International edition of this work is in score format, with two full-sized staves per system. This is very useful in putting this complex duo together, but...

    presents considerable logistical difficulties in performance because of the frequent page turns, most of which occur when both violins are playing! I recommend purchasing two versions; the International (or perhaps Peters; I've not seen that one) for score reading, and this Boosey edition for performance.
