[WTC I, keyboard, BWV 846-869] The Well-Tempered Clavier. Part I, BWV 846-869. Facsimile of the Autograph Manuscript in the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin—Preussischer Kulturbesitz. Commentary by Christoph Wolff and Martina Rebmann.
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 Curators discovered that the chiffon was actually damaging the paper more, so in the early 80s the original MS was withdrawn from public view.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]

[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. Handsomely bound with brown linen spine and Ingres marbled paper boards; matching slipcase. $289 (more info... ) [item no.170]

Veröffentlichungen des Beethoven-Hauses, III/16. Bonn, 2003. Oblong, 32 x 23 cm, 2 vols, 56, 70 pp. Beautiful full-color halftone of the autograph fair copy, five surviving sketches (all relate to the third movement), the first edition by Cappi (in black & white), plus a transcription of the sketch pages. 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.

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).

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.

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. Afterword in Ger-Eng by Siegard Brandenburg. Hardbound with handsome boards in burgundy moiré fabric and pasted title label. $145 (more info... ) [item no.7636]

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.

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).

Signs of the preparation needed for publication abound on the manuscript especially in the form of pencilled numbers that ‘cast off’ the number of bars to appear in a printed system, and the number of systems to appear on the printed page. Surviving correspondence between the French and German publishers of the Etudes informs us of the meticulous care with which Chopin prepared his first set of publications following his arrival in Paris (Kallberg).

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?

The autograph contains engraver's marks in the form of digits, written either in ordinary lead pencil or in red pencil or crayon, indicating the division of the musical text in the edition into systems and pages.

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".

This colorful, highly virtuosic piano work is often associated with the island of Jersey, where Debussy secretly spent the summer of 1904 with his new love Emma Bardac. 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.

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]

Rigoletto Konzertparaphrase. Kommentar: Ulrich Scheideler.
[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]

[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]

[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.

Nannerl Notenbuch. Vollständiges Faksimile aller erhaltenen Teile der Handschrift. Mit einer Einführung und einem Nachwort von Ulrich Leisinger.
Denkmäler der Musik in Salzburg, Faksimile-Ausgaben, 16. Munich, 2010. Oblong, 8°, 120 pp, 2 audio CDs. Full-color facsimile. 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. Leopold Mozart used the book to instruct his children up to about 1766; later Nannerl began to copy various works of Mozart as a souvenir of her brother. 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. With 2 audio CD, performed by Florian Birsak, a respected harpsichord and fortepiano soloist. $150 (more info... ) [item no.9202]

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”.

SCRIABIN, Alexander Nikolaievich, 1872-1915

Piano Sonata No.7 op.64. Faksimile nach dem Autograph im Besitz der Juilliard School, New York, Juilliard Manuscript Collection, Signatur 2 Sk63 AA JMC. Einleitung von Valentina Rubcova.
[Henle Music Facsimiles, 27]. Munich, 2015. 27 x 39 cm. xiv, 26 pp. Deluxe full-color facsimile of the autograph issued on the occasion of “Scriabin Year”. Scriabin’s seventh piano sonata is amongst the late sonatas nos. 6–10, conceived as preliminary studies for a “Gesamtkunstwerk” of enormous proportions, the “Mysterium”. The mystic aura of the sonata is communicated to the player not least through the ecstatic performance directions contained in the autograph and the first edition. Valentina Rubcova provides a guide for a journey of discovery through Scriabin’s esoteric musical world. Beautiful textured paper boards with autograph titling in mauvish crimson. $131 (more info... ) [item no.9440]

Italian musical culture. The Codex is composed of two distinct and independent copying layers. The older one contains 50 non-texted intabulated diminutions generally assumed to be instrumental and dated within the first two decades of the 15th century. They comprise diminished versions of Italian and French songs by some of the major composers of the 14th and early 15th c., Jacopo da Bologna, Bartolino da Padova, Francesco Landini, Antonio Zacara da Teramo, Guillaume de Machaut, and Pierre des Molins, as well as polyphonic estampies and diminutions on dance-related and liturgical tenors, including the 3 earliest alternatim mass-pairs that have come down to us. The younger layer is an autograph by the Carmelite friar Johannes Bonadies, who in 1473 and 1474 used empty folios to add 16 music theory treatises, summaries or tables, and 22 mid- or late-fifteenth-century polyphonic settings, mostly composed by John Hothby, Bernardus Ycart, and Johannes de Erfordia, aside with some anonymous settings and a short Kyrie by Bonadies himself.
