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. Facsimile, transcription and commentary, 3 volumes, linen bound. $833 (more info... ) [item no.9393]

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]

[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 (more info... ) [item no.9312]

Silbermann’s organ in the New Church in Strasbourg and Stein’s own organ in the Barfüßerkirche in Augsburg.
