[Brandenburg Concerti, BWV 1046-1051] Brandenburgische Konzerte. Faksimile des Autographen. Faksimileausgabe nach dem Autograph Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin – Preußische Kulturbesitz, Musikabteilung, Am.B.78.
Leipzig, 4/ 1996. Oblong, 33 x 26 cm, 170 pp. Halftone monochrome of the dedication autograph score—dated 24 March 1721—for Christian Ludwig, Margrave of Brandenburg. Bach's elegantly penned title "Concerts avec plusieurs instruments" (concertos with several instruments) is a somewhat modest description of the concertos to follow, in that many different combinations of instruments and sonorities are exploited, perhaps deliberately to get the Margrave's attention and approval, not unlike the way Mozart used his Gran Partita to introduce himself to the Viennese public. Sadly the autograph score was left unused in the Margrave's library until his death in 1734, the reason being (it is believed) that he lacked the musicians to perform the concertos. One of the great gems of Western music, this facsimile is a perfect gift for any wind or string player, harpsichordist, conductor or music lover.

Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 5. Laaber, 2/ 2015. 4º, xix, 54 pp. Fine color reproduction of the autograph score of the second part of Mus. ms. Bach P 271 which includes the 18 “Great” Leipzig organ chorales, plus “Vom Himmel Hoch” (S.769) and “Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland” (S.660a). Evidence suggests that the works arose, at least in part, as a virtuoso program of organ works that Bach performed at a number of churches including the Katharinenkirche in Hamburg, the “great organ in Cassel” and for a newly built Silbermann organ in the Dresden Frauenkirche. While the manuscript contains basically definitive versions of the chorales, as can be seen from the abundant corrections, a certain amount polishing of details took place in the preparation of this extraordinary collection.

Leipzig, c.1942. Oblong, 24 x 19 cm, 62 facs, ii pp. Superb collotype reproduction of mus. ms. Bach P. 610, Bach’s carefully executed “Reinschrift”. Composed in 1723 as a collection of pieces for the musical education of young pupils, Bach’s preface clearly lays out his aim: “Straightforward Instruction, in which amateurs of the keyboard, and especially the eager ones, are shown a clear way not only (1) of learning to play cleanly in two voices, but also, after further progress, (2) of dealing correctly and satisfactorily with three obbligato parts; at the same time not only getting good inventiones, but developing the same satisfactorily, and above all arriving at a cantabile manner in playing, all the while acquiring a strong foretaste of composition”. The first-time facsimile publication of the Inventions—along with Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, Schubert's Goethe Lieder and Mozart's Briefe—is extraordinary coming from the war years. A large portion of this particular facsimile was presented as a gift to musicians and music lovers by the Reichsmusikkammer, a Nazi organization and musicians' guild created to extol the virtues of "good" German music. Richard Strauss was its president 1933-34 until he ran afoul of the Gestapo. Afterword by Georg Schünemann. Wrappers in laid paper. (more info... ) [item no.2813]

More recent research shows that the sonata is actually a collective effort, with Anna Magdalena copying the main music text, and Johann Sebastian Bach adding the movement headings, key signatures and (in an extremely careful way) figures to the basso continuo. The mss were produced on behalf of the Bach student Heinrich Abraham von Boineburg and eventually ended up in the possession of Manfred Gorke; they were opened to the public for the first time in 1935.

Documenta Musicologica, II/50. Kassel, 2015. 20 x 32 cm, xxx, 90 pp. Deluxe 4-color facsimile of the autograph score based on newly commissioned photographs. The preludes and fugues of The Well-Tempered Clavier embrace an entire cosmos of compositional devices and musical characters—the ne plus ultra of ‘unity through diversity’. Here Bach not only presented the sum total of keyboard artistry in his day but foresaw its future evolution. His treatment of the keys marked a turning point in music history. The autograph score, originally a fair copy, contains later revisions and alterations reflecting the composer at work. Bach authority Christoph Wolff provides a commentary to the work’s genesis and the characteristics of Bach’s handwriting. Martina Rebmann (Staatsbibliothek Berlin) describes the subsequent history of the autograph. Afterword in Eng-Ger. Limited bibliophile edition, binding with leather spine, boards in decorative paper and pasted title etikette. A note on the MS and its facsimiles: Previous facsimile editions (1962-1989) exhibit on some pages a "screen" effect, the result of a silk chiffon overlay that curators applied to Bach's MS to prevent crumbling of the paper. Curators discovered that the chiffon was actually damaging the paper more, so in the early 80s the original MS was withdrawn from public view. To finally solve the problem of deterioration—much of it due to the corrosive quality of the ink—curators turned to a method called "paper splitting", where front and reverse side of each leaf is split, and an alkali-buffered paper laid in between; during the process imperfections in the leaves are repaired with the finest cellulose fibers. The leaf is also treated with a chemical to stop the process of corrosion; in the end the damaging silk chiffon could be completely removed. This new facsimile edition presents the MS—for the first time—in its post-restoration state, without silk chiffon, significantly improving the vividness of Bach's handwriting, a true joy for Bach lovers. $343 (more info... ) [item no.9413]

[WTC I, piano, BWV 846-869, Richault edition, annotated by F. Chopin] Vingt-quatre préludes et fugues (Le clavier bien tempéré, livre I). Annoté par Fréderic Chopin. Commentaire de Jean-Jacques Eigeldinger.
Publications de la Société Française de Musicologie, I/28. Paris, 2010. Oblong, 28 x 21 cm, lxxii, 111 pp. Color facsimile of the Richault edition (one of the four first editions of the work), with autograph emendations by Fredéric Chopin. In his triple activity as composer, performer, and teacher, Chopin constantly turned to Bach as a supreme point of reference. The Well-Tempered Clavier is said to be the only score he took with him to Majorca in the winter of 1838-39, at the time he was completing his 24 Preludes op.28—in other words, at the heart of his career as a composer. Until now the important role played by the Well-Temperedocument published here for the first time confirms it with living proof of a different kind, a live record, so to speak, of his teaching. This precious score, held in a private collection, emanates directly from Pauline Chazaren, a pupil of Chopin and teacher of Cosima Liszt. The score was probably purchased in Lyons around 1843 prior to Pauline's Parisian sojourn and was d Clavier in Chopin's teaching has been known on the basis of literary sources. The brought or sent to Paris, where it was used in the lessons with Chopin. The score shows no trace of interventions that could be ascribed to Pauline or anyone else. Leafing through the pages of this copy of the Well-Tempered Clavier I, one cannot fail to be struck by the neatness with which the signs and words indicating tempo, metronome marks, phrasing, articulation, dynamics, left-hand octaves, and so on, have been notated. All of Czerny's indications (probably taken from the 1843 Veuve Launer edition), save fingerings, have been copied out by Chopin. The systematic copying stops after Prelude 7, as do the sporadic indications in ink. Commentary in Fr/Eng/Pol. Hardbound. (more info... ) [item no.9166]

Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 7. Laaber, 2005. Oblong, 32 x 24 cm, xxiv, 240 pp. Facsimile, in full-color, of the autograph manuscript preseved in the State Library, Berlin. Beethoven called his last piano concerto, written in the same key as the Eroica, E-flat major, “a grand concerto”. It was influenced by the political and social events of the time, originally intended as the people’s call to arms against Napoleon. Beethoven’s 1809 autograph score documents not only the compositional process of the work written over a period of more than a year, but also provides a fascinating biographical testimony, as it was in the same year, sadly, that the composer had to discontinue his own public performances as a pianist due to his ever worsening deafness. This tragic break in his performing career caused him to develop a much more detailed autograph of the Fifth Piano Concerto than those of his earlier works.

[Concerti, piano, orch, cadenzas, selections] Sämtliche Kadenzen / The Complete Cadenzas. Herausgegeben von Willy Hess. Faksimile Ausgabe anläßlich des 100 Geburtstages 22. Februar 1979 von Dr. Kurt Eulenberg.
Zürich, 1979. 34 x 26 cm, xi, 131 pp (with 98 facs). Beautiful 4-color facsimile of 17 autograph cadenzas now preserved in four different libraries: Beethoven-Haus-Bonn (14), Bibliothèque National - Paris (1), Staatsbibliothek - Berlin (1) & the British Library - London (1). The cadenzas—generally fair copies—belong to the Piano Concertos nos. 1, 2, 3 & 4, the piano version of the Violin Concerto Op.61, and Mozart’s Concerto K.466 in d minor. Willy Hess’ commentary provides careful descriptions of each autograph, as well as information on printed editions. While Mozart left behind a plethora of cadenzas, not only for his own concertos but for those of others, Beethoven once avowed that he could not write anything which was “non-obligato” (closing the door on anyone who wished to freely improvise in his concertos). Some believe that Beethoven composed them in 1809 for his talented pupil, Archduke Rudolph. This facsimile edition provides a wonderful opportunity to study Beethoven’s approach to the cadenzas and, at the same time, compare them to the ones written by Moscheles, Reinecke, Brahms and Busoni which have also become a part of the repertory. Fine bibliophile edition issued on the occasion of the 100th birthday of Dr. Eulenberg.

The autograph, tidily written and highly legible was composed in 1801; although a fair copy, Beethoven made many corrections and alterations in the compositional fabric while writing out the score. The autograph as it comes down to us is missing the first and final leaves (including the first 13 bars of the opening movement), a state that was already recorded in 1830. Commentary in Ger-Jap-Eng.

[Sonata, piano, no.15, op.28, “Pastoral”, D major] Piano Sonata, Op.28. Facsimile of the Autograph, Sketches and First Edition. With Commentary and Transcription by Martha Frohlich.
Veröffentlichungen des Beethoven-Hauses, III/10. Bonn, 1996. Oblong, 36 x 28 cm, 135 pp. Monochrome halftone of the autograph fair copy, sketch pages (now dispersed among six libraries), and first edition. The autograph, dedicated to Joseph Edlen von Sonnenfels, dates from 1801; the first edition, published by the Bureau d’Arts et d’Industrie in Vienna, appeared in 1802. The “pastoral” associations of the sonata are invoked primarily by the lilting melodies and drone-like accompaniments in the themes of the outer movements, the folk-like style of the Trio in the third movement and nostalgic quality of the second movement. Although the autograph records clear evidence of Beethoven’s compositional process (mostly by its irregular gathering structure), the actual discrepancies between the autograph and first edition seem to be mostly the result of careless errors rather than intentional changes. Wrappers with attractive dust jacket which reproduces an original cover. (more info... ) [item no.7275]


[Sonata, piano, no.21, op.53 “Waldstein”, C major] Klaviersonate in C-Dur Op. 53 (Waldsteinsonate). Faksimile-Ausgabe des im Beethoven-Haus Bonn befindlichen Autographs. Mit einem Vorwort in deutscher und englischer Sprache in Neuauflage herausgegeben von Martin Staehelin.
Veröffentlichungen des Beethoven-Hauses, III/2. Bonn, 2/ 1984. Oblong, 35 x 26 cm, ix, 64 pp. (Re-issue of the Bonn, 1965 edition, together with new introduction in Ger-Eng). Superb 3-color collotype of the autograph fair copy. Named after the man for whom it was dedicated, the Waldstein Sonata was composed in 1804 at approximately the same time as the Eroica Symphony and drafts to Leonora. The autograph is believed to have served directly as the engraver’s copy for the first published edition (various pencil markings in the margins indicate the plate no. and the planned distribution of the music on the page). Handsome binding with laid paper boards and embossed title on pasted oval label. Limited edition of 1000 copies. $123 (more info... ) [item no.1665]

Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 21. Laaber, 2011. Oblong, 32 x 24 cm, xxiv, 48 pp. Full-color halftone of the composer’s autograph (1805-1806), a fair copy with numerous corrections. The autograph contains a fascinating note written by Paul Bigot (husband of the pianist Marie Bigot) which sheds light on the provenance of the ms: "During the journey, he [Beethoven] was surprised by a storm and driving rain, which soaked through the case in which he carried the Sonata in F minor which he had just composed. Following his arrival in Vienna he visited us and, laughing, showed the still wet composition to my wife, who took a closer look at it. Moved by the surprising beginning she sat down at the piano and begin to play it. Beethoven had not expected this and was surprised to see how Mad. Bigot did not let herself be stopped for a moment by the many erasures and changes which he had made. It was the original which he was in the process of taking to the publisher so that it could be engraved. When Mad. Bigot had played it and asked him to give it to her, he agreed and faithfully brought it back for her once it had been engraved". The autograph passed from the Bigot family to the Conservatoire de Musique, and then to the BN in Paris. Introduction in Ger-Eng. Hardbound with handsome paper boards. $116 (more info... ) [item no.9265]

The ms contains many crossouts and alterations and although a later “stage”—a copyist’s ms—served as the Stichvorlage for the 1817 first edition, the ms here is in many ways more accurate and can be called upon to verify or refute questionable readings in the print.

Oblong, 32 x 24 cm, xx, 58 pp. Full-color halftone of the composer’s autograph—simultaneously a fair and working copy—completed on Dec. 25, 1821. Although the last piano sonatas op.109, 110 and 111 were planned as a trilogy and offered to the publisher Schlesinger, their composition was not continuous, and it is op.110 that has certain unmistakable links with the Missa Solemnis composed at the same time (sketches of op.110 can be found alongside those of the Credo, the Agnus dei & Dona nobis pacem of the Mass). The sonata was ultimately published by Schlesinger in September of 1822. Introduction in Ger/Eng. Hardbound with handsome boards in grey patterned paper. $132 (more info... ) [item no.9091]

Compared to the previous sonatas of the trilogy (op.109, 110 & 111), op.111 had a rather long correction and printing period. After the Schlesinger (son & father) editions appeared in Paris and Berlin respectively Beethoven angrily had the Viennese publisher Diabelli issue a corrected reprint. Introduction in Ger-Eng.

[Variations, piano, on a waltz, op.120] 33 Veränderungen C-Dur über einen Walzer von Anton Diabelli für Klavier op.120 / 33 Variations in C major on a Waltz by Anton Diabelli for piano op 120.

Oblong, 35 x 24 cm, 92, 72, c.30 pp Color facsimile of the autograph working copy and the first edition (Vienna, 1823), based on the exemplar that preserves Beethoven’s handwritten dedication to Prince Lobkowitz. The Beethoven-Haus in Bonn acquired Beethoven’s working manuscript of this last great piano work and his most important cycle of variation in 2009, made possible through an unprecedented joint effort of noted artists and numerous public and private sponsors. The Diabelli Variations op.120 are in many respects extraordinary. The facsimile edition makes this important Beethoven autograph—formerly in private hands—accessible to musicians, scholars and music lovers. This unique autograph comprises 86 handwritten pages. Following the leaf with the prescribed Diabelli theme, it contains the complete cycle of 33 variations, and includes several inserted leaves. Beethoven’s compositional process can be recognized by means of the intensive corrections, the far-reaching conceptional alterations and editorial details down to the finest nuance.

Beethoven Sketchbook Series, [1]. Champaign, 2003. Oblong, 4˚, 3 vols, 384 pp. Full-color reproduction.

It also preserves Beethoven's work on the Bagatelles Op. 119, Nos. 7-11, and other unknown brief piano pieces. Beethoven's sketchbooks were his workshop. Capturing the methods he used to craft his ideas into art, they reveal his complex creativity and offer rich material for examining his revision process. Variations in his entries reflect the range of his musical moods and offer clues about the circumstances of composition. His notes and shorthand can illuminate the ways he expanded and refined ideas, clarify biographical or musical mysteries, or call attention to deliberate links between compositions.

Beethoven Werke, XIII/1. Munich, 2014. Oblong, 31 x 27 cm, 3 vols, xv, 307; 93; 201 pp. When Beethoven moved to Vienna in 1792, almost immediately, and likely pre-arranged, he started composition studies with Haydn, who had been freed from his post with the Esterhazys and was now living in Vienna. The studies—exercises in free counterpoint but also concerned with the conception of a piece, movement structure, proportions of the various parts and the art of “sketching”—lasted until 1794 when his teacher recommended additional studies with Albrechtsberger; with him Beethoven acquired a wide range of technical and compositional tools building on the earlier study. In 1801 Beethoven then turned to Salieri to learn the technique of setting primarily Italian texts to music, an area not covered in the preceding studies. The present volume reproduces for the first time the surviving manuscripts that record those studies. These are remarkable witnesses showing Beethoven under the watchful eyes of his teachers with illuminating comments, corrections or alternative passages.

Complete halftone reproduction and critical edition of the MS, currently in Kraków at the Biblioteka Jagiellońska (formerly Berlin, Staatsbibliothek, Mus. ms. aut. Beethoven Landsberg 6). Once known as “Notierungsbuch E”, Landsberg 6 is perhaps Beethoven’s most famous sketchbook due in part to Nottebohm’s 1880 monograph on this source. This sketchbook documents Beethoven's creative work from sometime late in 1802 until early in 1804, a transformative period in his artistic career. The most significant sketches are those for the “Eroica” Symphony, op.55, the “Waldstein” Sonata, op.53, and for the first five numbers of the opera Leonore as produced in 1805 (later revised and renamed Fidelio).

BRAHMS, Johannes, 1833-1897

[Neue Liebeslieder Walzer, vocal quartet, piano 4-hands, op.65] Die “Liebeslieder-Walzer” von Brahms und die zyklische Chormusik. Symposium in der Zentralbibliothek Zürich 15. November 2010. Herausgegeben von Urs Fischer, Laurenz Lütteken und Wolfgang Sandberger.
Documenta Musicologica, II/49. Kassel, 2014. Oblong, 34 x 25 cm, 28, 71 pp, w/41 illus, & CD. Beautiful full-color facsimile of the autograph, issued on the occasion of a special symposium held at the Zentralbibliothek Zürich when the ms was officially placed on permanent loan by the Swiss bank UBS. This valuable manuscript, completed in Rüschlikon outside of Zürich in the summer of 1874, and lost until 1991, is Brahms’ second set of love songs, building on his successful Liebeslieder Walzer op.52. Written for a vocal quartet and four-hand piano duo and intended as chamber music for use at home, the Neue Liebesliederwalzer are an eclectic mix of love-poems from many lands, including Turkey, Poland, Latvia, and Sicily (trans. into German by George Friedrich Daumer); the work concludes with Goethe’s “Zum Schluß”. The humorous casting of solo parts includes: bass as enraptured paramour, alto as jilted lover, tenor as Lothario, and soprano, a woman repeatedly unlucky in love. Commentary (in Ger) with 41 illustrations by Urs Fischer, Urs A. Müller-Lhotska, Otto Biba, Ingrid Fuchs, Wolfgang Sandberger, Inga Mai Groote, and Christiane Wiesenfeldt. Facsimile printed on fine laid paper with hand-stiched binding (after the original), housed with commentary and audio CD in a handsome clamshell case. $158 (more info... ) [item no.9407]

Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 28. Laaber, 2013. Oblong, 38 x 30 cm, 21, 172 pp. Beautiful full-color halftone of the autograph fair copy. Since its premiere in Budapest on Nov. 9, 1881 with Brhams as soloist the Bb major Concerto has become a mainstay in the repertory. The autograph, like the Symphony No.4, was used for the first performance and exemplar for the first engraved edition and as such is full of “performance & workshop talk”—performance instructions, messages, cues, corrections and other revisions that give the manuscript a living and breathing quality. $406 (more info... ) [item no.9333]

This is the only surviving source for op.116 (the engraver’s fair copy is now lost), and sheds important light on Brahms’ compositional and copying methods. A comparision with the first printed edition shows interesting changes or refinements in tempi, articulations and harmonic details; the original title of the fourth piece—“Notturno”—has been retitled “Intermezzo” in the final version. Afterword in Ger-Eng by Bernhard Stockmann. Hardbound. $119 (more info... ) [item no.7449]

Although a fair copy of the work with Brahms' annotations survives in the Juilliard School Library, this facsimile reproduces the only known autograph of the E minor and C major Intermezzi.

Brahms’ playing of this piece for the violinist Joseph Joachim, and later Liszt and Schumann, was decisive for his early recognition. Afterword in Ger.

[Sonata, violin, piano, no.1, op.78, G major] Sonate für Klavier und Violine Nr. 1 G-Dur Opus 78. Faksimile nach dem Autograph der Wienbibliothek im Rathaus, Musiksammlung, Wien. Mit einem Geleitwort von Julia Fischer und einer Einführung von Eberhard Hüppe.
Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 27. Laaber, 2013. Oblong, 38 x 30 cm, xxii, 36 pp. 3-color halftone of the autograph score signed “June 1879”. It's the composer's first sonata for violin & piano, sometimes referred to as the “Regenlied Sonata” because of the self borrowing of the first two bars from the song Regenlied (op.59 no.3) for the main theme of the third movement. Its melancholic mood has been recently connected with Brahms' sadness over the deteriorating health and eventual death of his godson, Felix Schumann—son of Clara and Robert—who intermittently strove to become a violinist. The autograph is teeming with corrections and alterations, most likely made shortly after the first performance of the piece in August 1879 given by Brahms and Joachim in a private setting. The sonata received its first public performance by Robert Heckmann & Marie Heckmann-Hertig in Bonn, 8 Nov. 1879. Hardbound. $116 (more info... ) [item no.9332]


[Trio, piano, clarinet, violoncello, op.114, A minor] Trio für Pianoforte, Clarinette und Violoncell, Opus 114. Faksimile des Autographs und Werkbericht von Alfons Ott. [Ms. Sammlungen der Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde, Vienna].
Tutzing, 1958. Oblong, 35 x 27 cm, 14, 32 pp. Outstanding halftone of the elegant 1891 autograph score. Clarinettist Richard Mühlfeld (b.1856), a soloist and chamber virtuoso with the Meininger Hofkapelle, gave Brahms the impetus to write this beautiful Trio, whose composition is also closely tied with the Clarinet Quintet, op.115. The work premiered on 24. Nov. 1891, played directly from the manuscript, Brahms at the piano and Mühlfeld and Robert Hausmann respectively playing clarinet and cello. This facsimile represents the publishing debut of the venerable music publisher Dr. Hans Schneider. Handsome bibliophile edition of 800 copies bound in grey linen with ivory colored boards. $55 (more info... ) [item no.212]

Mit einem Geleitwort von Christoph Eschenbach und einer Einführung von Frédéric Döhr.
Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 18. Laaber, 2014. Oblong, 32 x 24 cm, xvii, 26 pp. Full-color facsimile of the autograph fair copy dating from September 1861. Entitled “Variationen für eine liebe Freundin” [Clara Schumann], the autograph is a fascinating document abounding in corrections and alterations in tempi, fingerings, dynamics and articulations. Brahms played the piece for the first time in Hamburg 4 Nov. 1861 for a private social gathering at the home of Hermann Wagner. The first public performance was subsequently given by Clara Schumann on 7 Dec. 1861. The imminent music biographer Donald Tovey counts it as among the half dozen greatest sets of variations ever written.

Schriftenreihe zu Musik, 1. Tutzing, 1989. Oblong, 35 x 25 cm, xvii, 19 pp. Line-cut of the autograph. This is Brahms’ last large-scale piano work, composed during a summer retreat in Tutzing, 1873. C.F. Pohl, Haydn biographer and librarian of the Vienna Philharmonic Society provided Brahms with the theme—“Chorale St. Antoni”—at the time mistakenly attributed to Haydn. Although it is not known for sure if the piano version (op.56b) preceded the orchestrated version (op.56a), it is known that he first revealed the 2-piano version to Clara Schumann, and two months later presented the orchestra version to his publisher.

BYRD, William, 1543-1623

My Ladye Nevells Book (British Library MS Mus. 1591). Edited by Oliver Neighbour.
Documenta Musicologica, II/44. Kassel, 2012 Oblong, 8°, 394, 7 pp Duo-tone facsimile of one of the most beautifully written music manuscripts to survive from the late 16th c. and is still preserved in its original ornate binding. It was painstakingly compiled by the Windsor-based scribe John Baldwin, who completed work on it on 11 September 1591. Baldwin seems to have worked under the direction of the composer of all the pieces in the book, William Byrd, and clearly thought highly of him, describing him elsewhere as one “whose greate skill and knowledge: dothe excelle all at this tyme: and farre to strange countries: abroade his skill dothe shyne”. By 1591 Byrd was mid-way through his career as composer of church music and secular vocal and instrumental music. The MS provides a snapshot of the keyboard music he had composed by that date and is an exceptionally important source for his music. It contains some of his best-known compositions for keyboard, including variations on the popular tunes 'Sellinger's Round' and 'All in a Garden Green'. It also includes music written by Byrd specially for the dedicatee of the MS, 'Ladye Nevell'. She has recently been identified as Elizabeth, wife of Sir Henry Nevill of Billingbere, Berkshire. Her family's coat of arms adorns a leaf at the front of the MS. The MS was accepted by HM Government in Lieu of Inheritance Tax and allocated to the British Library in April 2006, with additional funding from donors. (adapted from BL description).

The work, in expansive sonata form in "stile brillante", dates from the early 1830s and stands as testimony to the fact that after completing the concertos in F minor and E minor, that Chopin was thinking of composing a third. The work was first published in 1841 and the manuscript remained in the Breitkopf & Härtel archives until 1939, when it was sold with a group of manuscripts, letters and daguerreotypes to Biblioteka Narodowa.

This is the principal source both in regard to the work’s genesis and for the compilation of a definitive text. Saint-Saëns, a former owner of the manuscript, wrote that the paper was so thin that Chopin was unable to make any corrections by means of erasure, but rather carefully crossed out the passage in question. The manuscript contains a large number of alterations (mostly deleted bars) and shows the composer’s extraordinary attention to pedaling (there are passages where he originally specified them, only to delete them later).

Works by Chopin—Facsimile Edition, [28] A /II/25/4. Warsaw, 2016. Oblong, 30 x 24 cm, 2 vols, 4, 47 pp. The Etude in A Minor was published with the whole cycle in October 1837, almost simultaneously by three publishers: Maurice Schlesinger in Paris, Breitkopf & Härtel in Leipzig and Wessel in London. The present full-color facsimile is based on the manuscript Rés 50 (2), Bibliothèque de l'Opéra; we know from engraver’s markings showing the exact division into pages and systems that it served as the Stichvorlage for the Schlesinger edition. The pages of the Etude show a significant number of minor corrections; these might indicate haste on the composer's part resulting in slips in the notation. Before the final resolution to an A major chord in bar 65 a whole bar was deleted—could this indicate that Chopin meant to replace some notes before that chord?

Works by Chopin—Facsimile Edition, [27] A X/64/2. Warsaw, 2015. Oblong, 28 x 22 cm, 2 vols, 2, 47 pp.. Full-color halftone of the autograph presentation copy signed “a Madame La Baronne Nathaniel de Rothschild”. It is precisely because Chopin made presentation mss of this type that the source studies for some of the waltzes are so complex. Complete autographs include this one and another in Basel in private hands. The Basel version, twice corrected by Chopin, served as the Stichvorlage for the first French edition by Brandus published in 1847. It differs in several very significant respects from the autograph presented here, and clearly represents a revision and refinement of the work. This gives special interest to the present manuscript which includes no upbeat, has a smoother less-urgent melodic line in the central section, and a recapitulation that consists only of a figuration fragment of the first section; furthermore this version has no tempo or pedaling indications.

J.S. Bach. Vingt-Quatre préludes et fugues (Le clavier bien tempéré, livre I). Annoté par Fréderic Chopin. Commentaire de Jean-Jacques Eigeldinger.
Publications de la Société Française de Musicologie, I/28. Bourg-la-Reine, 2010. Oblong, 28 x 21 cm, lxxii, 111 pp. Color facsimile of the Richault edition (one of the four first editions of the work), with autograph emendations by Fredéric Chopin. In his triple activity as composer, performer, and teacher, Chopin constantly turned to Bach as a supreme point of reference. The Well-Tempered Clavier is said to be the only score he took with him to Majorca in the winter of 1838-39, at the time he was completing his 24 Preludes op.28—in other words, at the heart of his career as a composer. Until now the important role played by the Well-Tempered Clavier in Chopin's teaching has been known on the basis of literary sources. The document published here for the first time confirms it with living proof of a different kind, a live record, so to speak, of his teaching. This precious score, held in a private collection, emanates directly from Pauline Chazaren, a pupil of Chopin and teacher of Cosima Liszt. The score was probably purchased in Lyons around 1843 prior to Pauline's Parisian sojourn and was brought or sent to Paris, where it was used in the lessons with Chopin. The score shows no trace of interventions that could be ascribed to Pauline or anyone else. Leafing through the pages of this copy of the Well-Tempered Clavier I, one cannot fail to be struck by the neatness with which the signs and words indicating tempo, metronome marks, phrasing, articulation, dynamics, left-hand octaves, and so on, have been notated. All of Czerny's indications (probably taken from the 1843 Veuve Launer edition), save fingerings, have been copied out by Chopin. The systematic copying stops after Prelude 7, as do the sporadic indications in ink. Commentary in Fr/Eng/Pol. Hardbound. (more info... ) [item no.9166]

Paris, 2017. 26.5 x 35 cm, iv, 8 pp. 4-color facsimile of the autograph.These two Arabesques, based on Debussy's meticulously copied fair copy, are especially relevant in understanding the composer's compositional arc: composed when he was in his twenties at a time when he was strongly influenced by the Chanteurs de Saint Gervais (a group founded for the study and performance of early music), these pieces embody a melodic gesture the composer called "divine arabesque", in part the musical language of the "primitives": Palestrina, Victoria and Lasso, whose melodic style the composer believed could be traced back to plainchant ("They found the basis of [the arabesque] in Gregorian chant, whose delicate tracery they supported with twining counterpoints". The early "Arabesques pour le piano" are key to interpreting Debussy's development as a composer. Preface in Fr-Eng by Pierre Boulez.

Even if he wrote the autograph during this time, evidence shows that the work was composed at an earlier date and was intended as part of the "Suite bergamasque". During his stay on the island Debussy revised the composition, giving the "Isle joyeuse" its present-day form. Commentary in Ger-Eng. Hardbound in beautiful blue art paper with embossed title in pink lettering. $69 (more info... ) [item no.9250]

Herausgegeben von András Schiff... Geleitwort von András Schiff. Einführung von Jarmila Tauerová und Jan Dehner.
[Henle Music Facsimiles, 16]. Munich, 2004. 25 x 33 cm, 28, 142 pp. Beautiful full-color facsimile of the autograph score composed during a two month period in the summer of 1876. The ms is both a fair copy and working copy, as the composer revisited it several times, first before its premiere in 1878, then before a performance in 1880 and then prior to its publication in 1883. András Schiff considers it a wonderful concerto with enomous warmth, conceived in the noble tradition of Mozart, Beethoven, Schumann and Brahms, but where the piano is first among equals. The facsimile allows us to see the composer’s original ideas, which vary significantly from the version by Vilém Kurz usually played since WW I, where the piano is robbed of its distinctive voice and overburdened with Lisztian gestures.

KURTÁG, György, b.1926

[Games, piano, selected works] Zoli Kocsis’s Manuscript Book / Kocsis Zoli Hangjegyfüzete. The History of the Manuscript Book. Postscript: The Contents of the Manuscript.
Budapest, 2016. 25 x 34 cm, 96, 10/10 pp, audio CD. Full-color facsimile in the original format of a manuscript version of “Games” issued on the occasion of Kurtág’s 90th birthday. “Games” is a series of piano pieces written for both teaching purposes and public performance. In the autumn of 1974 the composer (pupil of Messiaen & Milhaud and a close colleague of György Ligeti) began to copy selected pieces from Games into a special spiral-bound notebook for Zoltán Kocsis, a former piano student and important interpreter of Kurtág’s works. Kocsis played from this notebook in the first public performance of Games in 1974, and since then as well, as the series was expanded over a 30 year period. Koscis writes: “I didn't know that the spiral notebook I received at the premiere would later become, as it were, my permanent companion. That I would take it with me from Japan to Canada, from Australia to Iceland, traveling to the world's most prominent concert halls... that— well beyond the intention of its being 'copied with love'—it would include works and sketches for which this notebook would become the principal source”. The MS-notebook with 65 pieces—one third of them hommages to contemporary composers—provides a wonderful glimpse into Kurtág's workshop, of equal interest to performers and musicologists. The former can understand more from Kurtág's handwriting about the composer's intentions than from the printed score and musicologists can appreciate the historical development of the works as some appear in more than one version and may differ from the printed score. With commentary in Hung-Eng by Zoltán Kocsis, and audio CD with 11 works performed by Kocsis from a recording made in 1982 not previously available. Limited edition of 600 copies issued on the occasion of Kurtág’s 90th birthday. (reg. $110) $110 (more info... ) [item no.9505]

[Henle Music Facsimiles, 23]. Munich, 2011. 36 x 24 cm, 22 pp. Deluxe full-color facsimile of the autograph “working copy”, issued on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of Liszt’s birth. Franz Liszt not only wrote a series of opera paraphrases during his virtuoso years, but also composed some in his Weimar years from 1848 onwards. He did not, however, write them for himself but for the pianist friend (who was also his son-in-law) Hans von Bülow. Among these works, the paraphrase on Giuseppe Verdi’s “Rigoletto”, which was published in 1860, occupies a special place on account of its incredible virtuosity and at the same time its filigree texture. Since this is a working manuscript, the facsimile also offers fascinating insights into Liszt’s manner of working. Commentary in Ger-Eng. Handsome black moiré coverboards with Liszt’s signature in red. $82 (more info... ) [item no.9230]

[Sonata, piano, B minor, S.178] Klaviersonate h-moll / Piano Sonata in B Minor. Faksimile nach dem im Eigentum von Mr. Robert Owen Lehman befindlichen Autograph. Vorwort: Mária Eckhardt; Geleitwort: Claudio Arrau.
[Henle Music Facsimiles, 26]. Munich, 2015. 27 x 35 cm. xvii, 30, 8 pp. Deluxe [revised] full-color facsimile. The surviving autograph of Franz Liszt’s b-minor Sonata is a fascinating document that illuminates the compositional process: many cuts and paste-overs show how Liszt refined the architecture of the work. The previously available facsimile of the autograph (OMI #372) also allowed a profound look into this work process—but it was not possible to see what Liszt had originally notated in the passages that were pasted over. These paste-overs have since been removed and this new edition shows for the first time what is hidden behind them. With new introduction by Liszt expert Mária Eckhardt along with the original foreword by Claudio Arrau.. Hardbound with pasted label. $182 (more info... ) [item no.9379]

[Concerto, piano, orch, no.9, K.271] Klavierkonzert “Jenamy” Eb-Dur KV 271. Faksimile nach dem Autograph der Bibliothek der Jagiellońska Kraków. Herausgegeben und mit einer Einführung von Ulrich Konrad.
Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 38. Laaber, 2017. Oblong, 4°, xxiii, 136 pp. Full-color facsimile of the autograph score. Michael Lorenz describes Mozart's Piano Concerto K. 271 ('Jenamy') as “a miracle of musical originality. In the mastership of its orchestration, its stupendous innovative energy and its effect, despite limited instrumental means, this piece has absolutely no precedent. It is Mozart's first great composition, 'his Eroica' as Alfred Einstein put it, 'which he later would match, but never surpass'. With a creative thrust beyond compare, a kind of musical fulguration (in the sense of the term as coined by Konrad Lorenz), Mozart broke all previous conventions and already in 1777 demonstrated the superior mastery that distinguishes his piano concertos of the Vienna years. Formal surprises are being combined with unbridled melodic exuberance”. Lorenz also made the important discovery in 2003 that the concerto—previously nicknamed “Jeunehomme”—was actually commissioned by Victoire Jenamy, an excellent pianist and daugther of the the famous dance master Jean George Noverre.

[Henle Music Facsimiles, 17]. Munich, 2005. Oblong, 32 x 2l5 cm. xvi, 100 pp. Full-color reproduction of the autograph score completed on 2 March 1786, issued on the ocassion of the 250th anniversary of the composer’s birth. The A Major Concerto K.488, alongside the C-major Concerto K.467, is the most frequently played and recorded piano concerto in Mozart’s entire output. The autograph has come down to us in exceptionally fine condition, written with remarkable care and clarity, complete with Mozart’s own cadenza for the first movement unusually incorporated into the score itself. The composer’s penmanship, especially in the final movement, betrays the fact that he was working under deadline pressure, the notation becoming noticeably hastier, though it is always easy to read. The score is not a fair copy but rather a working manuscript containing in addition to later changes in scoring, many spontaneous alterations of greater or lesser importance that cropped up during the copying process. Introduction in Ger-Eng. Handsome binding in red cloth with embossed title. Special OMI introductory price. $158 (more info... ) [item no.8596]


[Concerto, piano, orch, no.24, K.491] Piano Concerto in C minor K. 491. Facsimile of the Autograph Score in the Royal College of Music, London. With a commentary by Robert Levin.
Documenta Musicologica, II/48. Kassel, 2014. Oblong, 34 x 25 cm, 74, 40 pp. Beautiful color halftone of the autograph fair copy completed on March 24, 1786. In his fascinating preface Colin Lawson, Director of the Royal College of Music, describes the journey made by Mozart’s autograph following its sale in 1800 by Constanze, Mozart’s widow, to its eventual resting place in London where it is the jewel in the RCM’s extensive collection of historic manuscripts. The Piano Concerto in C minor K. 491 is one of Mozart’s greatest piano concertos not least because of the dramatic character of its minor key (it is one of only two piano concertos composed in minor keys). It also has the largest orchestra he ever used in a piano concerto and the only piano concerto to use both oboes and clarinets. Written in 1786 during a period of almost feverish activity, it was completed only 22 days after the A major concerto K. 488 and during composition of The Marriage of Figaro. The autograph is exceptional in that Mozart records sketches that he later enlarged and extensively revised for the score thus allowing us an insight into his creative process. Mozart’s work appears here for the first time in a color facsimile, making it possible to easily recognize the contrasting colors of ink. The renowned Mozart scholar and pianist Robert Levin has written an illuminating commentary. He explains Mozart’s method of composition and guides the reader page by page through the autograph. This high-quality facsimile truly is a fascinating insight into Mozart’s art of composition. Hardbound with linen spine and decorative paper boards. $248 (more info... ) [item no.9359]

[Prelude, piano, K.269c] Praeludium (ohne Köchel-Nummer). Faksimile-Ausgabe, Erstdruck, herausgegeben und mit einem Vorwort von Imre Sulyok. [Ms. formerly in the collection of Dr. Vilmos Schulek, now Ms. mus. 6.341, Music Collection of the National Széchényi Library, Budapest].
Budapest, 1977. 22 x 34 cm, 8, 2 pp. Halftone of the c.1776-77 autograph copied on the verso side of the last page of an exercise copybook. The MS originally owned by Mozart’s sister, Nannerl, and its history can be reconstructed in some detail: At the bottom of the fully written side of the leaf, one sees the signature of the composer’s son, Carl Mozart. From him the MS apparently came in the hands of Josepha Baroni Castiglione, since at the bottom of the other side of the leaf (which includes figured bass exercises in Nannerl’s hand) there is a remark, according to which the autograph of ‘the immortal Mozart’ was presented by Josepha Baroni Castiglione to Luigia Branca on July 23, 1846: “Vienne le 23 de Juillet 846. /Autographe de l’immortel W. A. Mozart. / Offèrt à Mselle Louise Branca par J. Baroni Castiglione”. The MS was for a while in the possession of the niece of Luigia Branca’s husband, Melánia Fuchs, and eventually came from the estate of his husband, Vilmos Schulek, in the hands of their grandson, Imre Sulyok. In the decades that have passed since the publication of the facsimile edition, it has also been clarified that this folio was originally part of a bifolio, the rest of which has also survived: the manuscript K. Anh. C 15.11 preserved in the Krakow Biblioteka Jagellonska, bound in a collection under shelf mark autogr Moz 624/5 Kadenzen. Both the characteristics of the handwriting and the type of the paper suggest that Mozart wrote this modulating prelude in 1776–1777, for his sister Nannerl. (The bass clef and the six chords, all in black pencil, above the prelude were presumably notated by Mozart’s father, Leopold). Introduction in Ger-Eng-Hung, together with a practical edition. Hardbound. (adapted from notes by the NSL, Budapest) $35 [item no.448]

Kassel, 1991. Oblong, 34 x 25 cm, 14, 40 pp. Halftone of the autograph score dated 16 October 1785. The instrumental force called for here—cembalo (fortepiano), violin, viola, and violoncello—was practically a novelty at that time. The manuscript shows a visible alteration in the viola part from a treble clef to an alto clef at the beginning of the first, second and third movements, suggesting that Mozart first thought of scoring the work with two violins. In any case the viola voice adds a wonderful sonorous element that Mozart exploits. Preface in Ger-Pol-Eng.

This famous music book not only documents the musical training of Anna Maria (Nannerl) Mozart and her brother Wolfgang, but also provides the first glimpse of the exceptional talent of the young composer, showing the astounding development from an improvisation, written at the age of 5, to an ambitious sonata and concerto movement penned when he was almost 8.

The volume contains altogether 27 works, most of them by Wolfgang, but there are also works by Leopold Mozart, Georg Christoph Wagenseil, Anton Cajetan Adlgasser, Johann Jakob Paul Küffner, Johann Niklaus Tischer, & Johann Joachim Agrell.

RHEINBERGER, Josef Gabriel (1839-1901)

[Trio, piano, strings, no.2, op.112, A major] Faksimileausgabe des Klaviertrios Nr. 2 in A op.112 nach der autographen Partitur in der Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek München. Mit einem Nachwort von Harald Wanger. [Mus.ms. 4584].
Die Gesamtausgabe der Werke Rheinbergers, Supplement, 1. Stuttgart, 1996. 4°, 59 pp. This enigmatic composer, mostly remembered today only for his organ compositions, is an important contemporary of Wagner and Brahms, and a teacher of Humperdinck, Wolf-Ferrari, George Chadwick and Wilhelm Furtwangler. Interestingly he did little to publicize his compositions in his lifetime and in many cases it was due to the vigorous initiative of his wife Fanny that a work was sent to a publisher. Fortunately the newly launched Complete Edition of the Works of Rheinberger (Carus-Verlag) will remedy this situation. The present facsimile edition, a part of this series, is based on the fair copy autograph housed at the Baravian State Library in Munich, one of two important repositories of Rheinberger's music. The Piano Trio No. 2, a highly original work dating from 1878, is classical in structure and romantic in character with many eclectic qualities lacking in of the music of his German contemporaries. The piece has many wonderful moments, the minuet section is a “lovers duet” between the strings while the piano provides the underpinning with a light flowing texture. Handsome blue linen binding with signature of Rheinberger in gold. $97 (more info... ) [item no.9259]

Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 43. Laaber, 2017. Oblong, 28.5 x 21.5 cm, xxi, 94 pp. Full-color facsimile of the autograph score, together with some entries by his wife Clara, and two pieces in the hand of Ferdinand, Schumann’s grandson. The MS is the basis of the first edition and thus has the usual engravers pencil markings. Despite being a fair copy it documents some compositional work, especially regarding the conclusions of certain pieces, and also sheds light on the selections process, as not all pieces get included in the final printed edition. The impetus of composing Album for the Young is clear from a diary entry of Clara written 1 September 1848: “The pieces which children learn in piano lessons are so poor that Robert had the idea of composing and publishing a book (a kind of album) entirely with children’s pieces. He has already written a plethora of charming little pieces”. Later that year Clara wrote to their friend Carl Reinecke of the pedagogical importance of the work: “they are thus also easy to execute and I believe these pieces will meet the wishes of many amateurs, of precisely those who do not play well enough to perform Robert’s grander piano compositions”. And in a postscript to this letter Robert writes as a postscript: “I do not know when I ever found myself in such a good mood as when writing these pieces. It truly overwhelmed me”.

English Keyboard Music c.1600-1625. Edited by Alan Brown
Musica Britannica, XCVI. London, 2014. 4º. Modern critical edition. This volume is the first of two intended to extend the coverage of keyboard music in Musica Britannica comprehensively into the first quarter of the 17th century. The present edition contains music by anonymous and a dozen or so named composers, including the complete keyboard works of Nicholas Carleton, the surviving twenty 'Miserere' canons by Thomas Woodson, and the anonymous 'Pretty ways for young beginners to look on'. The 77 complete pieces are organized by genre, including preludes, plainsong settings, voluntaries, dances and character pieces. Drawing on 22 manuscripts which mostly also transmit music by Byrd and other noted virginalists, this residue of music from these sources shows great diversity and a pleasing level of technical skill and musical interest, sufficient to enhance our wider view of English Renaissance music.

Roseingrave, Thomas. Complete Keyboard Music. Edited by H. Diack Johnstone and Richard Platt.
Musica Britannica, LXXXIV. London, 2006. 4°. xliii, 130 pp. Modern edition. Consists of 15 voluntarys and fuges from 1728, 6 double fugues from 1750, 8 setts from 1728, and 4 miscellaneous pieces. While studying in Italy Thomas Roseingrave became a disciple of Domenico Scarlatti, but in his own keyboard music he developed a personal gift for bold harmonies and modulations into a style that confounded his contemporaries and retains its novelty to this day. He was the first organist of St George’s, Hanover Square, until mental illness overshadowed his professional life. His keyboard music remains among the most intriguing œuvres of any 18th-century British composer. Buckram. $157 [item no.6619]
