BOULEZ, Pierre, 1925

Le marteau sans maître. Fac-similé de l’épure et de la première mise au net de la partition / Facsimile of the Draft Score and the First Fair Copy of the Full Score. Édité par / Edited by Pascal Decroupet.
Eine Publikation der Paul Sacher Stiftung. Mainz, 2005. Oblong, 38 x 30 cm. 215 pp. Beautiful full-color facsimile edition of the autograph draft score and fair copy, produced on the occasion of the 80th birthday of the composer. Since its premiere 50 years ago at the 1955 Baden-Baden Festival, “Le marteau sans maître”, with its novel scoring (contralto, alto flute, viola, guitar, vibraphone, xylorimba and unpitched percussion) and poetry by René Char in four of the nine interlocked movements, has been considered one of the most outstanding serial works of the postwar avantgarde. Commentators have pointed out its wonderful hypnotic soundworld, complex rhythmic structure, and sudden bursts of instrumental crossfire, creating such a demand on the performers that some fifty rehearsals were required before its premiere. This excellent facsimile offers an exciting entry into Boulez’ “workshop”—allowing us to examine, side by side, the pencil draft score, final ink version, as well as a selection of sketch pages. Handsome binding in red linen with slipcase. $254 (more info... ) [item no.8588]

MILÁN, Luís, c.1500-d.?

Libro de música de vihuela de mano intitulado El maestro. Valencia, 1536. [Biblioteca Nacional, Madrid].
Madrid, 2008. 20 x 29 cm, xxvi, 202 pp. Full-color reproduction of the Valencia, 1536 edition. Of utmost importance not only to vihuela enthusiasts but also to renaissance lute players and modern classical guitarists. “El Mastro” (“the Teacher”) was created as a method and is the earliest known example of Spanish tablature for the vihuela in print. The music it contains is exquisite: 40 fantasies, 40 preludes, 6 pavanas, 6 Christmas carols for vihuela and voice, 4 old romances and 6 sonnets. El Maestro is presented in levels from simple to complex, so that a beginning vihuelist can proceed from elementary to more complicated pieces as he or she learns. Many are of considerable virtuosity and compositional styles vary from simple homophony to polyphonic with virtuoso passagework. One notices immediately the great care with which the work was created and engraved. Alternate passages are given for players who wish to avoid more virtuosic parts, sections of pieces are indicated as optional, and Milan provides verbal tempo indications. The "vocal" notes in the tablatures for the Christmas carols have been painstakenly printed with red ink (a precursor of Bach’s use of red ink for the Biblical texts of the St. Matthew Passion). The music of Luis Milan is popular with performers to this present-day—both classical guitarists and lutinests regard El Maestro as an integral part of their repertoire. Introduction in Spainish by Gerardo Arriaga. Beautifully hard bound, with coverboards being a replica of the original. $125 (more info... ) [item no.9156]

WEBERN, Anton, 1883-1945

Sketches (1926-1945). Facsimile Reproductions from the Composer’s Autograph Sketchbooks in the Moldenhauer Archive. Commentary by Ernst Krenek with a Foreword by Hans Moldenhauer.
New York, 1968. Oblong, 37 x 30 cm, 16, 47 pp. Fine line-cut reproduction of the autograph. Webern made preliminary drafts for his compositions which show stages of evolution and the unending thought and care that he bestowed upon them. While Stravinsky called the finished products “those dazzling diamonds”, this volume allows us a glimspe into the composer’s workshop. These fascinating sketches, extracted from five sketchbooks from the Webern Archive, illustrate the meticulous step-by-step process of the composer’s 12-tone technique. Compositions include op.19, 20, 21, 22, 24, 31 and several unidentified works. Handsome binding in beige and brown linen, with slipcase. $50 (more info... ) [item no.671]

WEISS, Silvius Leopold, 1686-1750

Lautenmusik aus Schloß Rohrau. Werke von Silvius Leopold Weiss und anderen. Zwei Manuskripte für Barocklaute aus der Graf Harrach’schen Familiensammlung. Als Faksimile herausgegeben und kommentiert von Michael Freimuth, Frank Legl und Markus Lutz.
Frankfurt, 2010. Oblong, 4º, xlviii, 268 pp. The world-famous art collection of the Harrach family is preserved in their castle at Rohrau near Vienna. In 2004 the curator of the collection, count Arco-Zinneberg, came across 7 manuscripts (2 of them lute tablatures) preserved together with the art collection. Christoph Angerer and Michael Freimuth were called to evaluate the mss and soon realized the value of the find, particularly of the lute tablatures. The first volume mostly contains works by Sylvius Leopold Weiss, among them 11 suites of several movements that have been previously unknown, 1 complete lute duet in 4 movements, and the suite in A that has so far survived as solo music, but here it is in the form of a trio for violin, lute and bass. The title of the second volume, "Lautenmusik von unbekannten Componisten" (lute music by unknown composers) was obviously caused by the scribe’s ignorance of the music, since already as many as 4 suites could be ascribed to Weiss by concordances. Other suites in the collection are composed in a style that is quite similar to Weiss’ style as well. Quite unexpectedly, the volume also contains 4 pieces for lute in renaissance tuning, notated in Italian tablature. The present volumes, comprising 200 pages, bridge a gap in the group of sources of lute music by Weiss, complementing other Weiss manuscripts in London and Dresden, as they mainly contain pieces of his early creative period. The 2 manuscripts in Rohrau contain a total number of 167 movements for the lute, organized in 26 suite-like sequences. Without doubt, these volumes are of the highest significance both for active lute players and for scholars. $230 (more info... ) [item no.9171]

[Harrach Ms.] Lautenmusik aus Schloß Rohrau. Werke von Silvius Leopold Weiss und anderen. Zwei Manuskripte für Barocklaute aus der Graf Harrach’schen Familiensammlung. Als Faksimile herausgegeben und kommentiert von Michael Freimuth, Frank Legl und Markus Lutz.
Frankfurt, 2010. Oblong, 4º, xlviii, 268 pp. The world-famous art collection of the Harrach family is preserved in their castle at Rohrau near Vienna. In 2004 the curator of the collection, count Arco-Zinneberg, came across 7 manuscripts (2 of them lute tablatures) preserved together with the art collection. Christoph Angerer and Michael Freimuth were called to evaluate the mss and soon realized the value of the find, particularly of the lute tablatures. The first volume mostly contains works by Sylvius Leopold Weiss, among them 11 suites of several movements that have been previously unknown, 1 complete lute duet in 4 movements, and the suite in A that has so far survived as solo music, but here it is in the form of a trio for violin, lute and bass. The title of the second volume, "Lautenmusik von unbekannten Componisten" (lute music by unknown composers) was obviously caused by the scribe’s ignorance of the music, since already as many as 4 suites could be ascribed to Weiss by concordances. Other suites in the collection are composed in a style that is quite similar to Weiss’ style as well. Quite unexpectedly, the volume also contains 4 pieces for lute in renaissance tuning, notated in Italian tablature. The present volumes, comprising 200 pages, bridge a gap in the group of sources of lute music by Weiss, complementing other Weiss manuscripts in London and Dresden, as they mainly contain pieces of his early creative period. The 2 manuscripts in Rohrau contain a total number of 167 movements for the lute, organized in 26 suite-like sequences. Without doubt, these volumes are of the highest significance both for active lute players and for scholars. $230 (more info... ) [item no.9171]
