Wiener Urtext - Featured Products

The genesis of Chopin's Polonaise brillante, Op. 22 leads back to his youth in Warsaw and the years of his first trips as a virtuoso. Designed as a concert piece with orchestra, it takes up a special position among the polonaise compositions of Chopin. However, by tradition, the work has always been performed as an extremely effective solo piece. Since no autograph has survived, the various first prints are used as sources.

Available Format: Sheet Music

Franz Schubert's Sonata In D Major Op. 137/1 D 384 for violin and piano. Edited from autograph and first edition.

Horn or Cello & Piano

Originally, Beethoven wrote Sonata, Op. 17 for horn and piano. This composition was intended for the famous horn virtuoso Johann Wenzel Stich who called himself Giovanni Punto. Punto had greatly expanded the playing techniques on the natural horn. Beethoven tailored the solo part to the unique playing skills of this virtuoso musician. This work was also published in a version for horn or violoncello one year after the world premiere.

Based on the sources of Ulrich Leisinger, fingering by Hans Kann

Bartók jotted down this four-movement orchestral work very rapidly and without a short score. Breitkopf’s new edition is based on the autograph, on the first editions of the conducting and pocket score, and in particular on the composer's personal copy of the pocket score, in which Bartók later entered the corrections that he had discovered - alterations that were taken into consideration for the first time in this new edition.

Richard Wagner wrote the Siegfried-Idyll in late 1870 for the 33rd birthday of his wife Cosima. He broadly based it on motifs from the third act of the eponymous stage work. On the title page, Wagner boldly designated the work as Tribschen Idyll with Fidis birdsong and organ sunrise (Fidi was the pet name of son Siegfried, who was born in 1869). The effective piece conquered the international concert podiums as soon as it was printed in February 1878.

'You can be rightfully pleased with what is coming!' announced Clara Schumann self-confidently in late 1855 to the 24-year-old Joachim upon sending him a copy of the Three Romances, Op. 22 for violin and piano that had just been published by Breitkopf & Härtel. Clara Schumann and Joachim often successfully performed them in their concerts in later years. After having temporarily fallen into oblivion, the Romances did not make their way more lastingly into the chamber music repertoire until 1983, when a reprint of the first edition was published.

Alphonse Leduc, Heugel, & Hamelle - Featured Products

From a recently discovered manuscript, which brings to light not only new pieces, but also certain works known up to now in a different form.

Volume two is also available here.

Available Format: Sheet Music

This transcription of Three Pieces for cello and piano was composed between 1911 and 1913 and published by Heugel. The two initial pieces were originally written for organ: the first, in E flat minor, brings a moderate tempo to a melancholy cantilena with Romantic accents, while the second, in A minor, exudes warmth and tenderness. The third piece, in C sharp minor, most likely originally titled Danse espagnole, heralds the Roaring Twenties with its restlessness and festive crackle. Together they emit a charm that is difficult to resist.

Available Format: Sheet Music

Cello & Piano

Sonate for Cello and Piano by Francis Poulenc. Part of the the Alphonse Leduc catalogue, this work has been produced to the highest editorial and printing standards.

Available Format: Sheet Music

Published respectively in 1950 and 1953, the two Nocturnes by Marguerite Roesgen-Champion for oboe and piano (or organ) have their place in the glorious tradition of French music from the between-the-wars period. The first Nocturne, subtitled Noël, is as simple as it is expressive, and is in the form of a pastorale. The second Nocturne presents subtle modulations that give it a refined elegance.
