Just in time for Beethoven's 250th birthday, this previously-unknown piano piece has been found in the Austrian National Library in Vienna. It was recorded on two pages in a collection of sketches dating from the years 1790-1792. The sixteen-bar piece bears the musical character of a Ländler and has therefore been titled Ländlerischer Tanz.

Henle continues its series of Beethoven's piano sonatas stemming from the collaboration between Beethoven specialist Norbert Gertsch and star pianist Murray Perahia. As no autograph manuscript has survived, the first edition of the three sonatas op. 10, published in Vienna in 1798, forms the sole basis for this revised Urtext edition.

Joachim Raff's two string quartets are orchestrally-conceived, full of energetic vigour, and at times uncompromisingly modern. They confidently continue the Beethovenian tradition and attest at the same time to Raff’s intensive confrontation with Richard Wagner’s music during the Weimar years.

Parts for each quartet also available.

Mozart expert Wolf-Dieter Seiffert presents Mozart's “Early Viennese Quartets” from 1773: K168–173. In his preface, Seiffert shares brand-new findings on the chronology of the genesis of these quartets, and succeeds in correcting what in prior editions were occasional inaccuracies in dynamics and articulation.

Miniature Score also available.

Making music in a quartet uniquely nurtures young string players’ musical development, ensemble playing, and intonation.

Volume 2 also available.

Available Format: Sheet Music

This sublimely beautiful late work was premiered in 1943 by Gottfried von Freiberg under the direction of Karl Böhm. It was not until after Strauss’s death that the concerto appeared in print in London, making a critical new edition more than overdue. Editor Hans Pizka, former principal horn of the Bavarian State Opera in Munich, learned first-hand about the concerto as a pupil of Gottfried von Freiberg.

Miniature Score also available.

Breitkopf & Härtel

This song cycle consists of eleven settings of Hungarian folk songs in a German adaptation by Hugo Conrat. Although Brahms had conceived them as vocal quartets for domestic use, public performances with choirs were already happening during his lifetime. This tradition continues until today, taking advantage of modern grand pianos to enable a larger choral scoring.

Available Format: Sheet Music

Bärenreiter presents a vocal score of Handel's opera-like cantata, the highlights of which include Dafne’s aria “Felicissima quest’alma” (accompanied by solo oboe) and Apollo’s famous lament “Cara pianta”. This Urtext edition is based on the Halle Handel Edition.

Breitkopf's latest anthology of opera arias focuses on the lyric mezzo-soprano. Alongside the music, each aria contains a commentary with information on the composer, the librettist, the work, and the range, while a short synopsis of the contents illuminates the basic dramatic context of each excerpt within the opera’s plot.
