Original Transcription of the famous concert in the Cologne Opera of January 24, 1975

The Köln Concert is a transcription authorized by Keith Jarrett of the legendary concert of 24 January 1975 at the Opera of Cologne. The attempt to visually represent this brilliantly improvised music through the use of music notation to make it accessible to a whole generation of young pianists is so daring that Keith Jarrett consistently refused in the first years to agree to such a project. And as is apparent from his preface to the sheet music edition, he still recommends using the recording as final-word reference.

In his many works for all types of choir Rautavaara has very substantially demonstrated his command of the choral medium. Many of his choral works have already become evergreens in his own life. The various movements of A Children's Mass (1973) are performed in alternation by a children's choir and string orchestra. Only in the final movement are the two ensembles combined. This arrangement also makes it possible for the choral and orchestral cycles to be performed as separate entities.

Schubert's most popular early mass has often been performed with strings alone. The wind parts added to the autograph by Ferdinand Schubert at a later date were considered inauthentic. Over a century later, the set of parts written by Franz Schubert himself were rediscovered in Klosterneuburg. They contain parts for trumpet and timpani which are thus clearly authorized by the composer. There is also a figured organ part, which guarantees that the continuo can now be realized without misinterpretation.
