[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]

BARTÓK, Béla, 1881-1945

[Concerto, viola, orch, draft] Concerto for Viola and Orchestra. Facsimile of the Autograph Draft, with an Introduction by Laszlo Somfai. Preface by Peter Bartók. New Fair Copy of the Autograph by Nelson Dellamaggiore.
Homosassa, 1995. 28 x 40 cm, 16 facs, 80 pp. Full-color facsimile of the composing (short) score written in 1944 in New York (and Saranac Lake), which, along with the Third Piano Concerto, is the composer’s last work. The concerto, a commission of the violist William Primrose, although “complete”, was not scored by Bartók (the composer referred to its orchestration as “mechanical work”), and surely many details and modifications would have occurred when he transferred the composition onto the final score paper. That task was later completed by Tibor Serly. With this facsimile we can finally answer the question, how much is Bartók, and what details come from Serly. With preface by Peter Bartók and commentary provided in Eng-Hung-Ger-Jap-Sp. Hardbound in black, with gold lettering. Special OMI price (reg. $100). $80 (more info... ) [item no.4417]

[Henle Music Facsimiles, 22]. Munich, 2011. Oblong, 35 x 29 cm, 168, xxiv pp. Beautiful 4-color halftone. The heart of Beethoven’s Quartet op. 132 is the “Holy song of thanksgiving”, in which Beethoven takes up old counterpoint techniques and Gregorian simplicity. In this unusually beautiful and well preserved manuscript, Beethoven generously makes the most of the space on its pages. 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]

Prague, 2006. Oblong, 4°, 5, 4, 4 pp. Full-color facsimile of the autograph score, together with modern performance parts. The recently rediscovered bifolio begins with a sketch for a piece in four-part choral texture, without words; the Largo, spanning pages 2 through 4, consist of 64 bars in 3/4 time and was probably composed in 1867. We can easily imagine this Largo having been composed to provide variety in a musical soirée in someone’s home, with the composer himself playing the viola, colleagues of his the flute and violin, and one of the audience members the triangle. Dvořák’s annotation at the end—“mea culpa, mea maxima culpa”—suggests that the piece may have been intended as a joke. Preface in Czech-Eng-Ger-Fr-Jap. Wrappers. $28 [item no.8784]

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.

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.

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.

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]

The Sonata is his last work and received its premiere on October 1, 1975, after Shostakovich’s death. As is the case with other works of Shostakovich, quotations from his other compositions as well as quotations and reminiscences from works by other composers play an important role in the Viola Sonata. During the days of its composition the composer wrote an open letter to the musicians of the world: “By building bridges into the future we must take care not to burn the bridges connecting today’s culture to its immortal past”; the Viola Sonata demonstrates this living connection between times and cultures with hypnotic power.
