BEETHOVEN, Ludwig van, 1770-1827

[Missa Solemnis, orch, chorus, op.123] Missa Solemnnis Op. 123. Facsimile of the Autograph Score in the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin—Preußischer Kulturbesitz. With a commentary by Hans-Joachim Hinrichsen and Martina Rebmann.
Documenta Musicologica, II/51. Kassel, 2016. Oblong, 45 x 40 cm, 351, 27 pp. Deluxe 4-color facsimile of the autograph working score. William Drakbin describes the genesis of the mass as “the longest, most arduous struggle in Beethoven’s career as an artist”, with equally complex history of its sale to B. Schott after years of calculating with other publishers. 4 of the 5 movements of the Missa Solemnis survive today, the Kyrie, 50 pp in upright format, and the last three movements, Credo, Agnus and Sanctus, 286 pp in oblong format. The Gloria unfortunately disappeared soon after Beethoven’s death. Deluxe edition with leather spine. $718 (more info... ) [item no.9506]

Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 45. Laaber, 2018. Oblong, 32 x 24 cm, 22, 240 pp. Facsimile, in full-color, of the autograph manuscript preserved in the State Library, Berlin. The piece was composed in 1799-1800 and first performed—Beethoven playing from short score—April 5, 1803. Scholars have pointed out that Mozart's C Minor Concerto K.491, which Beethoven played in public concerts, bore an influence on Beethoven's Concerto. Hardbound. $558 (more info... ) [item no.9508]

[Quartet, strings, op.132, no.15, A minor] Streichquartett a-moll op.132. Vollständige Faksimileausgabe der Handschrift Mus. ms. autogr. Beethoven Mend.-Stift. 11 der Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin—Preußischer Kulturbesitz. Vorwort von András Schiff, Einleitung von Ernst Herttrich.
[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]

[Sonata, piano, no.23, op.57, F minor] Klaviersonate “Appassionata” f-moll op.57. Faksimile nach dem Autograph der Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Paris. Mit einer Einleitung von Wolfram Steinbeck.
Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 21. Laaber, 2011. Oblong, 32 x 24 cm, xxiv, 48 pp. Full-color halftone of the composer’s autograph (1805-1806), a fair copy with numerous corrections. The autograph contains a fascinating note written by Paul Bigot (husband of the pianist Marie Bigot) which sheds light on the provenance of the ms: "During the journey, he [Beethoven] was surprised by a storm and driving rain, which soaked through the case in which he carried the Sonata in F minor which he had just composed. Following his arrival in Vienna he visited us and, laughing, showed the still wet composition to my wife, who took a closer look at it. Moved by the surprising beginning she sat down at the piano and begin to play it. Beethoven had not expected this and was surprised to see how Mad. Bigot did not let herself be stopped for a moment by the many erasures and changes which he had made. It was the original which he was in the process of taking to the publisher so that it could be engraved. When Mad. Bigot had played it and asked him to give it to her, he agreed and faithfully brought it back for her once it had been engraved". The autograph passed from the Bigot family to the Conservatoire de Musique, and then to the BN in Paris. Introduction in Ger-Eng. Hardbound with handsome paper boards. $126 (more info... ) [item no.9265]

Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 14. Laaber, 2011. Oblong, 31 x 24 cm, xv, 40 pp. Facsimile, in full-color, of the autograph fair copy manuscript (with corrections) entitled “Sonate für das Hammerklavier” and dedicated to his friend Antoine Brentano, also the dedicatee of the Piano Trio WoO 39. This is the first sonata—completed in the fall of 1820—of a trilogy (op.109, 110 & 111) promised to the publisher Schlesinger with operations in Paris and Berlin. Introduction in Ger-Eng. Hardbound with decorative paper boards. $98 (more info... ) [item no.9090]

Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 15. Laaber, 2011. Oblong, 32 x 24 cm, xx, 58 pp. Full-color halftone of the composer’s autograph—simultaneously a fair and working copy—completed on Dec. 25, 1821. Although the last piano sonatas op.109, 110 and 111 were planned as a trilogy and offered to the publisher Schlesinger, their composition was not continuous, and it is op.110 that has certain unmistakable links with the Missa Solemnis composed at the same time (sketches of op.110 can be found alongside those of the Credo, the Agnus dei & Dona nobis pacem of the Mass). The sonata was ultimately published by Schlesinger in September of 1822. Introduction in Ger/Eng. Hardbound with handsome boards in grey patterned paper. $132 (more info... ) [item no.9091]

[Sonata, piano, no.32, op.111, C minor] Klaviersonate c-Moll op. 111. Das Faksimile Faksimile nach dem Autograph der Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin Preußischer Kulturbesitz. Mit einem Kommentar von Siegfried Mauser.
Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 16. Laaber, 2011. Oblong, 32 x 24 cm, xv, 42 pp. Facsimile, in full-color, of the autograph manuscript completed in the spring of 1822. Compared to the previous sonatas of the trilogy (op.109, 110 & 111), op.111 had a rather long correction and printing period. After the Schlesinger (son & father) editions appeared in Paris and Berlin respectively Beethoven angrily had the Viennese publisher Diabelli issue a corrected reprint. Introduction in Ger-Eng. Hardbound with decorative paper boards. $98 (more info... ) [item no.9092]

[Symphony, no.7, op.92, A major] Symphonie Nr.7, A-Dur, op. 92. Faksimile nach dem Autograph aus der Biblioteka Jagiellońska, Kraków. Herausgegeben und eingeleitet von Oliver Korte. Mit einem Geleitwort von Lothar Zagrosek. [Mus. ms. autogr. Beethoven. Mendel.-Stift. 9].
Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 51. Laaber, 2017. Oblong, 32 x 24 cm, 28; 256 pp. Color reproduction of autograph score of Beethoven's Symphony No.7. The work was composed between the period of September 1811 to mid 1812, and its premiere took place on December 8 at the Viennese Universitätssaal together with the premiere of Wellington's Victory. While two copyist manuscripts survive with Beethoven's markings—one of them the fair copy in the hand of Anton Diabelli prepared for the first edition of the publisher Sigmund Anton Steiner—the autograph produced here in facsimile has a very special place because it preserves to a very great extent the text of op. 92 in its final form. This is the conclusion of Jonathan del Mar, based on the type of corrections and modifications seen in the autograph, modifications that were ostensibly transferred to the score during the first rehearsals. Afterword in Ger-Eng. Bound in black linen, with slipcase. $498 (more info... ) [item no.9543]

[Symphony, no.9, op.125, D minor] Sinfonie No.9 op.125. Autograph. Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin—Preussischer Kulturbesitz, Beethoven-Haus Bonn, Bibliothèque National de France. Commentary by / Kommentar von: Lewis Lockwood, Jonathan Del Mar, Martina Rebmann.
Documenta Musicologica, II/42. Kassel, 2/ 2019. 37 x 40 cm, viii, 436, 42 pp. Full-color facsimile of the autograph fair copy in the original format. With his Ninth Symphony Beethoven ventured into new musical dimensions. In the final movement soloists and chorus join forces with the orchestra and Schiller’s “Ode to Joy” becomes a global aspiration, a declaration: “Alle Menschen werden Brüder” (all mankind becomes brothers). In his commentary the Beethoven scholar Lewis Lockwood describes the plea which Beethoven wanted to deliver at that time with this work and how views of this have changed over the centuries. Jonathan Del Mar, editor of Beethoven’s works, comments on noteworthy passages in the autograph manuscript and allows the reader to share in the composer’s working process. Already the large-format paper which Beethoven used for some passages makes the large forces clear. Cuts, sometimes reversed later, show how he wrestled with the final version of the musical text and refined it right down to the last detail. The history of the autograph manuscript reflects an episode in German history: after storage in various places because of the war, the major parts were returned to Berlin but were initially divided by the Berlin Wall and only reunited in 1990. Martina Rebmann, director of the Music Department at the Staatsbibliothek in Berlin traces this story. For the first time the facsimile present all the parts of the manuscript including pages preserved in Bonn and Paris as well as the trombone and contrabassoon parts. Hardbound, with decorative paper and linen spine. Commentary in Eng-Ger-Jap. Special OMI price. $930 (more info... ) [item no.9595]

[Variations, piano, on a waltz, op.120] 33 Veränderungen C-Dur über einen Walzer von Anton Diabelli für Klavier op.120 / 33 Variations in C major on a Waltz by Anton Diabelli for piano op 120.
Veröffentlichungen des Beethoven-Hauses, III/19. Bonn, 2010. Oblong, 35 x 24 cm, 92, 72, c.30 pp Color facsimile of the autograph working copy and the first edition (Vienna, 1823), based on the exemplar that preserves Beethoven’s handwritten dedication to Prince Lobkowitz. The Beethoven-Haus in Bonn acquired Beethoven’s working manuscript of this last great piano work and his most important cycle of variation in 2009, made possible through an unprecedented joint effort of noted artists and numerous public and private sponsors. The Diabelli Variations op.120 are in many respects extraordinary. The facsimile edition makes this important Beethoven autograph—formerly in private hands—accessible to musicians, scholars and music lovers. This unique autograph comprises 86 handwritten pages. Following the leaf with the prescribed Diabelli theme, it contains the complete cycle of 33 variations, and includes several inserted leaves. Beethoven’s compositional process can be recognized by means of the intensive corrections, the far-reaching conceptional alterations and editorial details down to the finest nuance. Introduction (Ger-Eng) by Kurt Masur, with contributions by William Kinderman, Michael Ladenburger and Bernard R. Appel. Hardbound. $215 (more info... ) [item no.9187]

Veröffentlichungen des Beethoven-Hauses in Bonn, I/37. Bonn, 2010. Oblong, 4º, 2 vols, 96, 100 pp. Color halftone. The sketchbook, well known under the name Artaria 197, has been edited and published for the first time in a complete historical-critical edition by the Beethoven expert William Drabkin. The sketchbook used by Beethoven in 1821 contains drafts of music for prominent later works: to the Missa solemnis and the final two piano sonatas, as well as many hitherto unknown sketches. The edition has been published in English. Linen. $279 (more info... ) [item no.9145]

[sketchbooks, composition studies with Haydn, Albrechtsberger, Salieri] Kompositionsstudien bei Joseph Haydn, Johann Georg Albrechtsberger und Anton Salieri. Herausgegeben von Julia Ronge. 1. Transkriptionen; 2. Kritischer Bericht; 3. Reproduktionen der Handschriften.
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]

[sketchbook, “Grasnick 5”] Grasnick 5: Beethoven’s Pocket Sketchbook for the Agnus dei of the Missa Solemnis, Opus 123. [Facsimile Edition] Transcribed, Edited, and with a Commentary by Patrizia Metzler and Fred Stoltzfus. [Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin].
Beethoven Sketchbook Series, [3]. Champaign, 2016. Oblong, 38 x 28 cm, 144 pp. Color facsimile of a pocket sketchbook acquired by the Berlin Royal Library in 1879 as part of the holdings of Friedrich August Grasnick, a gentleman scholar & music collector. Long neglected in scholarship, the so-called Grasnick 5 documents reveal Beethoven working out concepts and ideas, offering fascinating insights into his creative method. This critical edition, the third in the Beethoven Sketchbook Series, offers a facsimile and transcription, spread out side by side, of the contents of the stitched pocket sketchbook started by the 50-year-old master during the summer of 1820. At the time, Beethoven labored over the Missa solemnis, Opus 123. The sketchbook's pages yield the entire record of his early ideas on the Agnus Dei of that work as well as a sketch for part of the Benedictus. Includes 5 pages from Artaria 205, also in side-by-side facsimile-transcription layout. Clothbound. $95 (more info... ) [item no.9490]

[sketchbook, “Landsberg 6”] Beethoven’s “Eroica” Sketchbook. A Critical Edition. Transcribed, Edited, and with a Commentary by Lewis Lockwood and Alan Gosman. Volume 1: Facsimile; Volume 2: Transcription, Commentary, Inventory.
Beethoven Sketchbook Series, [2]. Champaign, 2013. 4˚, 2 vols. Complete halftone reproduction and critical edition of the MS, currently in Kraków at the Biblioteka Jagiellońska (formerly Berlin, Staatsbibliothek, Mus. ms. aut. Beethoven Landsberg 6). Once known as “Notierungsbuch E”, Landsberg 6 is perhaps Beethoven’s most famous sketchbook due in part to Nottebohm’s 1880 monograph on this source. This sketchbook documents Beethoven's creative work from sometime late in 1802 until early in 1804, a transformative period in his artistic career. The most significant sketches are those for the “Eroica” Symphony, op.55, the “Waldstein” Sonata, op.53, and for the first five numbers of the opera Leonore as produced in 1805 (later revised and renamed Fidelio).

[Correspondence, Conversation Books, complete ed.] Beethoven's Conversation Books. Edited and Translated by Theodore Albrecht. Volume 1, Nos. 1 to 8 (February 1818 to March 1820).
Woodbridge, 2018. 15 x 24 cm, 400 pp. By 1818, Beethoven had begun carrying blank booklets with him, for his acquaintances to jot their sides of conversations, while he answered aloud. Often, he himself used the pocket-sized booklets to make shopping lists and other reminders, including occasional early sketches for his compositions. Today, 139 of these booklets survive, covering the years 1818 up to the composer's death in 1827 and including such topics as music, history, politics, art, literature, theater, religion, and education as perceived on a day-to-day basis in post-Napoleonic Europe.
