BACH, Johann Sebastian, 1685-1750

[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. Handsome binding in brown linen with lettering in gold. $285 (more info... ) [item no.7619]

Kassel, 2000. 4º, 7 vols, 95, 41, 200 pp. The “bible” for students of the Bach Cello Suites. New full-size line-cut reproductions of source A, B, C, D, plus the Paris 1st edition [Janet et Cotelle, c.1824]. The first two are in the hand of Anna Magdalena Bach and Johann Peter Kellner, 1727-1731 and 1726 respectively, and as such, are the most autoritative. Source C (2nd half of 18th c.) comes from the estate of Johann Christoph Westphal, a Hamburg organist, printer and music dealer. Source D, or “Traeg” MS, also late 18th c. is named after Johann Traeg, a Vienese art and music dealer who once owned it. As none of the sources derive directly from the now lost autograph nor from each other, they all have a special importance in the textual tradition of the suites. A close comparison discloses significant textual discrepancies, sometimes the result of accidental slips, and at others, true alternative readings. Includes new urtext edition and critical notes.

The lavish 4-color printing allows the composer’s occasionally unconventional manner of notation to come to life. It permits a unique insight into the creative process, which continued after it had been written down in the form of multiple additions and changes. The edition is rounded off with a preface by the pianist András Schiff, with his generous support this valuable facsimile was made possible. Hardbound. $190 (more info... ) [item no.9189]

Halftone of the 1749 autograph score, composed for the celebration of the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle. The overture is the longest single instrumental movement that Handel wrote and is scored for tpt 1-3 (x3), hn 1-3 (x3), ob 1-3 (x12, x8, x4), bsn 1-2 (x8, x4), timp (3 pairs), & bc.

This is a fascinating score, in Handel’s forceful script, showing his erasures by smudging, his clarifications by writing note letters over a correction, and his normal abbreviations for colla parte using custodes. The manuscript also bears evidence of arguments over scoring that went on with the civil servants organizing the spectacle. Preface in Ger/Eng. Hardbound. $65 (more info... ) [item no.8448]

Hoffmeister in seinem Wiener Verlag erstmals veröffentlichten Werkes, das er in das 1800 neu gegründete “Bureau de Musique Hoffmeister & Kühnel (seit 1813 C.F. Peters) als Verlagsnummer 1 einbrachte.
Frankfurt, [1980]. 23 x 30 cm, 4 parts, 16 pp. Fine line-cut of the Vienna, 1788 edition. This work, especially the fugue section, has a clear connection to the music of Bach, introduced to him in 1782. It is a transcription for strings of his Fugue in C minor for two pianos, K.426 written in 1783. This beautiful facsimile attempts to recreate the look of an 18th print, showing the impression of the printing plates on the paper and utilizing fine paper the exact size of the original with irregular deckel edges. As this work was the very first publication of Hoffmeister & Kühnel (forerunner of the firm C.F. Peters) the facsimile is a tribute to both composer (one of few works published within his lifetime) and the publisher. With green silk string securing the four bifolios together. $45 (more info... ) [item no.4732]

The original Froberger work first appeared in 1650 in Kircher’s Musurgia Universalis. André had given a 1782 date to this Mozart arrangement, but Wolfgang Plath has recently assigned a new date, 1785-86. For exactly whom Mozart intended the arrangement (voices or instruments) is unclear–the clefs he used, soprano, alto, tenor & bass, suggests a vocal ensemble, but there are no words.

[Quartet, piano, vln, vla & vc, K.478, G minor] Quartett in g für Klavier, Violine, Viola und Violoncello KV 478. Faksimile nach dem Autograph im Museum der Chopin-Gesellschaft in Warschau. Mit einer Einführung von Faye Ferguson.
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. Handsome binding with green laid paper boards and embossed label. $129 (more info... ) [item no.4161]

[Serenade, strg orch, “Eine kleine Nachtmusik” K.525] Eine kleine Nachtmusik. Serenade in G-Dur KV 525. Faksimile der autographen Partitur. Einführung von Wolfgang Rehm. [Ms. Dr. Arthur Wilhelm Collection, Switzerland].
Leipzig, 1989. Oblong, 33 x 25 cm, xiii, 14 pp. Collotype of the autograph score completed August 10, 1787. This celebrated serenade or "party music" in four movements originally had a fifth movement—two minuets and their trio are now lost. The autograph calls for 2 violins, viola, violoncello and bass (string quintet) but it is often performed by a larger orchestra. The manuscript was rediscovered by Manfred Gorke in 1943; it then went to Karl Vötterle, avid collector and founder of Bärenreiter Verlag who sold it for 50,000 Deutschmarks after WW2 to help rebuild the destroyed publishing house. It is now in private hands in Basel. Introduction in Fr/Ger/Eng. Handsome binding in linen with red and gold title stamp. $75 (more info... ) [item no.3901]

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]

Ward, John. Consort Music of Four Parts. Transcribed and Edited by Ian Payne.
Musica Britannica, LXXXIII. London, 2005. 4°. xxxviii, 106 pp. Modern edition. John Ward's music for 4 viols shows less consistency of style than his work for 5- or 6-part consort. The smooth madrigalian lines of the 6 Oxford fantasias most clearly approach the accomplishment of his characteristic pieces for larger ensembles. The Paris fantasias, which with the In nomines also included in the collection feature uniquely in a single source in the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, are more variable in texture and idiom. The volume also includes 6 ayres for two bass viols and organ, brief, tuneful compositions in dance-like rhythm redolent of the almain. Buckram. $143 [item no.6563]
