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.

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 [item no.9202]

Santucci’s step rules not only present many important variants on “old” steps but also describe others for the first time that point to a new style, suggesting a bridge between the Italian style of Caroso and Negri and the emerging French noble style. Santucci furthermore provides an extremely clear didactic way of teaching gagliarda “cinque passi” variations, of great help and utility even today. His progression from simple to complex leads to variations that will be a challenge to the most expert dancer. Linen. $125 [item no.9208]

Oblong, 21 x 30 cm, 508 pp. Color facsimile of the notebook of this esteemed piano maker active in Erlangen and Nuremberg. 4 years after his death his son Johann Lorenz, together with Carl Wilhelm Friedrich Dieudonné founded the firm of piano makers Dieudonné & Scheidmayer in Stuttgart. The two Scheidmayers, father and son, made use of this small notebook, comprising 192 pages, most jotting down remarks and records in relation to their work. While Johann David used the book to record wages he was paid as an apprentice to Johann Andreas Stein, other income and notes on the construction of instruments, Johann Lorenz used it to to keep notes on the construction of pianos, both grand and square, record tunings he had carried out and the construction costs of a new building complex in Stuttgart for the firm. The whole document provides an extrordinary account of instrument making, on social life and on the relationship between apprentice and master. Clothbound. $356 [item no.9426]

[Arnold Schönberg Center] Schönberg. Pierrot Lunaire Companion. Elke Fess, Therese Muxeneder.
Vienna, 2012. 15 x 22 cm, 80 pp, w/ 42 color illus. Beautifully illustrated catalog produced on the occasion of composition of Arnold Schoenberg’s Pierrot lunaire in Berlin in 1912. The work was commissioned by Albertine Zehme, whose recitations were marked by a highly individual aesthetic, aiming to “recapture the ear’s prerogative in life”. In terms of its genre, Pierrot lunaire was historically unique at the time Schoenberg composed it and marks the high point of his expressionistic period. The famous melodrama is placed in the extreme danger zone of post-Romantic composition. Pierrot, “with waxen countenance”, is a bizarre and nervous figure, enticed into a counterworld of nighttime phantasms and hopeless passions. A cosmos of tonal shading in the colorful realm between singing and speaking. Ger/Eng. Wrappers. $15 [item no.9312]

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.

Patrimoine musical du Nord de la France”, were organized in Cambrai (Maison Falleur/Médiathèque municipale), Douai (Bibl. municipale and Musée de la Chartreuse) and Bailleul (Musée Benoît-De-Puydt). This exceptionally beautiful and illustrated publication is the scholarly outcome of this event containing detailed descriptions of, and commentaries on more than 150 manuscripts, prints, treatises and archival documents. 2 sections are dedicated mainly to plainchant sources and liturgical manuscripts, one elaborates on sources of polyphony and music theory from the North of France and a final section is dedicated to Charles Edmond Henri de Coussemaker (1805-1876), who was a pioneer in listing and studying music sources from the North of France. A lot of attention is paid to his vast private collection (more than 1600 books, prints and mss) and to the large number of pieces which found their way into the collections of the Brussels Royal Library and the Library of the Brussels Royal Conservatory.
