The sequence causes a slight change for the following instruments (of the Large Orchestra) [list of instruments] All other instruments make the cut without changing a single note. In his letter of transmittal to Victor Alpert, Dutilleux explains that he has already sent Charles MUNCH replacement pages for another revision of the work, but that he considers them superfluous with this second cut. He entrusts Alpert with the task of correcting each of the parts. He refers to a third cut which he discussed with Munch and which he has since found "very good ". A typed note in English summarizing the composer's modifications is attached (1 p. in-8, heading Berkshire Music Center, Tanglewood).
