I recorded the complete Beethoven symphonies with the Württemberg Philharmonic Orchestra as its GMD and then the complete Mozart symphonies with the Yamagata Symphony Orchestra in Japan.  I trust Bärenreiter editions and always use them because I feel that they come very close to the handwritten scores. On the occasion of his visit to Tokyo, I had the opportunity to speak with Mr. Del Mar and my thoughts about his editions were confirmed.
