from Op. 1, Op. 2, Op. 5Instrumentation : piano (harpsichord)Description : Baldassare Galuppi (176-1785) received his first music lessons from his father and later became a pupil of the famous Antonio Lotti. His oeuvre first and foremost includes operas and oratorios, but he also wrote chamber music works, cantatas and works for piano. Although well-known in his days and highly acclaimed by his contemporaries, such as Christian Friedrich Daniel Schubart and Charles Burney, for his compositional skills, he rather has to be classed among the forgotten composers today. This new edition with 9 of his harpsichord sonatas published in Nuremberg and London during Galuppi´s lifetime aims to put things right.Date de parution : 19/08/2008Nombre de pages : 74Format : New Edition portrait
Beethoven, Ludwig vanThree Sonatas for Piano F minor, A major, C major op. 2BA 10859 / 9790006561933Bärenreiter continues its Urtext edition of the complete Beethoven piano sonatas with an important contribution. The frequently played Sonatas op. 2, Nos. 1-3, stem from the time when the young composer took lessons from Joseph Haydn in Vienna and are dedicated to his teacher. After Beethoven’s three early sonatas which he wrote as a youth in Bonn, the so-called ´´Kurfürsten-Sonaten”, Beethoven started 10 years later, in the mid 1790s, to develop a style independent from the legacy of Mozart and Haydn and presented with his op. 2 his first fully valid piano sonatas.The acclaimed Beethoven specialist Jonathan Del Mar has consulted every known source for this scholarly-critical Urtext performing edition. In addition he has analysed various copies of the prints published during Beethoven’s lifetime. The result of his accurate research is presented in a meticulously edited musical text at the cutting edge of scholarship, together with a detailed Critical Commentary.The volume stands out in terms of its elegant and well-presented layout. Special emphasis has been placed on optimum page-turns and on the consideration of the flow of the music. The highly informative Introduction on the genesis and significance of the sonatas is supplemented by valuable notes on historical performance practice.- New scholarly-critical performing edition at the cutting edge of scholarship- Optimum page-turns- Introduction with valuable notes on historical performance practice (Eng/Ger)- Detailed Critical Commentary (Eng)

DescriptionWhen Christa Landon presented her printed edition of Joseph Haydn´s piano sonatas for the first time, Haydn´s sonata works were still overshadowed by the works of Mozart and Beethoven. But Haydn´s sonatas left the niche of piano lessons long since and have become established in the concert repertoire; Landon´s edition certainly played a major role in that. The Haydn anniversary in 2009 is a welcome occasion to thoroughly revise this ´legendary´ edition, because new sources have been discovered and questions concerning authenticity have been clarified over more than forty years; the editorial principles for 18th-century music in particular have markedly changed in the mean time. The new edition comprises all the works from the previous Wiener Urtext edition plus the Sonata Hob. XVI:16 arranged by Landon, as well as a Sonata in F major which was discovered in Bolzano a few years ago and attributed to Joseph Haydn. The new edition, too, is divided into four volumes, the content of which is compatible with that of each of the volumes of the preceding edition. In the notes on interpretation Robert D. Levin explains essential aspects of Haydn´s performance practice.

Beethoven, Ludwig vanTwo Sonatas for Pianoforte E major, G major op. 14Composed at about the same time as the ´´Grande Sonate pathétique” op. 13 (BA 10851), the two op. 14 sonatas are among the easiest Beethoven ever wrote and an indispensable part of piano lessons. Their lyrical, almost chamber-like textures and moderate difficulty make them an ideal introduction to the rich legacy of Beethoven’s sonatas.Jonathan Del Mar, a scholar second to none in his knowledge of Beethoven’s music, now presents these sonatas in a cutting-edge Urtext edition based on the latest research findings and an intensive study of the sources. Practical page turns and a fine engraving reflecting the character of the music ensure maximum enjoyment for every pianist.The informative Introduction describes the genesis of the works and is supplemented by valuable notes on performance practice. The Critical Commentary provides information on variants as well as editorial guidelines and contains facsimile pages.• Scholarly-critical Urtext edition based on the latest research findings• Enlightening Introduction and notes on period performance practice (Eng/Ger)• Well-presented engraving and practical page turns• Detailed Critical Commentary (Eng) with facsimiles
Instrument : cello and pianoSeries : Cello LibraryNombre de Pages : 42The autograph of this sonata, composed in 1789, was initially extant in Bückeburg under the title of ´Sonata per il Cembalo o Piano-Forte et Violoncello obligato´ but was lost in the Second World War. The version then published was merely a substantially revised version which had been transposed to D major. Our new edition reconstructs the work´s original state (in A major), taking the common performance practice principles of articulation and dynamics into account. A rewarding, yet fairly easy piece suitable for lessons and concerts which can be regarded as an important link to Beethoven´s sonatas.
KV 485, 494 & 511 - Urtext - pianoFingering: Kann, HansEditor: Leisinger, UlrichNotes: Levin, RobertMozart´s three popular rondos, created in Vienna in the mid-1780s, are a many-faceted addition to his piano sonatas. These rondos include the rather easy-to-play Rondo in D major KV 485 and the pensive Rondo in A minor KV 511. The volume is completed by the Rondo in F major KV 494 which was later included by Mozart in his Sonata KV 533 as final movement. In the charming version of an individual piece, the work is somewhat easier to play than the sonata version; thus, it will be a valuable addition to music lessons. The musical text is based not only on the first editions, but also on Mozart´s autographs which are extant of all three pieces.Contenu - Rondo D-Dur KV 485 - Rondo F-Dur KV 494 - Rondo a-Moll KV 511
Rooted in European music history due to his acquaintance with Chopin, Liszt, Berlioz and Schumann, Stephen Heller (1813-1888) is one of the most important representatives of the Romantic character piece. The Budapest-born pianist and piano teacher composed almost exclusively for his instrument. His overall oeuvre comprises more than 150 works, including sonatas, preludes, dances, variations, collections of studies, arrangements, numerous cycles and individual pieces. His rather simple, yet inventive and varied piano setting is typical of 19th-century moderately difficult, virtuoso salon music.In Melodic Studies Op. 45 Heller addresses various technical tasks in a melodious piano setting that is typical of him. Varied, charming idiomatic figurations appear in a harmonically simple and pleasing Romantic tonal language. The rather easy to moderately difficult studies are ideal for lessons and also suitable as performance pieces. Apart from character pieces, this collection also contains effective bravura studies.Contenu - Allegretto - Allegro vivace - Allegretto - Allegretto - Allegretto comodo - Allegretto con moto - Allegretto con moto - Allegretto - Andante quasi Allegretto - Moderato - Allegro - Con moto - Allegro scherzando - Poco maestoso - Poco maestoso - Andantino con tenerezza - Allegro vivace - Allegro - Allegretto grazioso - Allegro - Allegro vivace - Allegretto con moto - Allegro di molto - Allegro veloce - Allegro con brio
