This critical edition constitutes the first edition of …..sofferte onde serene… based upon archival and analytical research.

The archives that were consulted for this project, include the Archivio Luigi Nono in Venice, the Archive of Casa Ricordi—BMG Ricordi in Milano, the Experimentalstudio der Heinrich-Strobel-Stiftung des Südwestfunks in Freiburg, and the Nono-Archiv Stenzl in Salzburg. For the written score, in addition to the sketches and original autograph, the main sources are the final Autograph (ALN signature 42.19), the revised copy for the publication (Ricordi), and the first edition. For the tape, the sources are the tape provided with the score in the edition Ricordi, the copy of the tape preserved at the Experimentalstudio Freiburg, the recording of Maurizio Pollini for Deutsche Grammophon, and the working tapes conserved at the Archivio Luigi Nono in Venice.
