Edited by Gunther Weigelt. This edition is the most popular version of Reicha's best-known quintet. It does not come with a score, and there are extensive cuts to the original work. The result makes for a well-balanced whole that is not overly long. A new edition, with the same cuts, is available with a score: TCO 9077
