[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]


[Concerto, 2 violins, strg orch, bc, BWV 1043] Concerto à 6. Concerto in D Minor for Two Violins, Strings and Continuo BWV 1043.

Bach St 148, formerly in the possession of the Preußische Staatsbibliothek in Berlin (the “tutti” non-autograph parts of the concerto are not reproduced in this edition). The continuo part is in the hand of C.P.E. Bach and an unknown Leipzig copyist. Reveals a number of instructive details including clearly marked cues for the solo and tutti sections, and interesting dynamic and articulation markings. Portfolio in heavy textured paper, with pocket for music. Edition of 1100 copies printed by Stinehour Press in Vermont. (special sale price, formerly $85). $30 (more info... ) [item no.3922]


Sonatas, viola da gamba solo, BWV 1027-1029] Drei Sonaten für Viola da Gamba solo und obligates Cembalo, BWV 1027–29. Faksimile herausgegeben von Hille Perl. In Zusammenarbeit mit der Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin—Preußischer Kulturbesitz.

Faksimile-Reihe Bachscher Werke und Schriftstücke, Neue Folge, 1 Leipzig, [2001]. 22 x 35 cm, xii, 16 pp. Beautiful full-color halftone of two separate autographs, each from 1732, the sonata in the hand of Anna Magdalena Bach, the prelude (C-sharp major, WTC I) in the hand of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. More recent research shows that the sonata is actually a collective effort, with Anna Magdalena copying the main music text, and Johann Sebastian Bach adding the movement headings, key signatures and (in an extremely careful way) figures to the basso continuo. The mss were produced on behalf of the Bach student Heinrich Abraham von Boineburg and eventually ended up in the possession of Manfred Gorke; they were opened to the public for the first time in 1935. Introduction in Ger-Eng. Limited edition of 1100 copies. Distinctive portfolio with green paper boards, black linen spine, and hinged flaps. $69 (more info... ) [item no.8069]

[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]

British Library Music Facsimiles, III. London, 1980. Oblong, 37 x 28 cm, viii, 40 pp. Beautifully printed duotone of the autograph score, completed in the first half of 1802. Although the manuscript could be considered a faircopy, it appears not to be the source for the first edition issued by the Bureau des Arts et d’Industrie, Vienna, June, 1803, with a dedication to Alexander I, the Russian Czar. That edition contains additional expression marks and trill indications. As in the case of almost every Beethoven autograph there is evidence in the score reproduced here of compositional changes and improvements carried out after he had already begun to write out the final version. Handsomely bound in blue buckram with gold lettering. $125 (more info... ) [item no.148]


[Sonata, violoncello, piano, op.69, A major] Sonate für Violoncello und Klavier op.69, 1. Satz.

Facsimile of Autograph NE179 in the Beethoven-Haus Bonn. Edited and with a Commentary by Jens Dufner and Lewis Lockwood. [Beethoven-Haus, Bonn, formerly private library of Felix Salzer, New York].
Veröffentlichungen des Beethoven-Hauses, III/20. Bonn, 2015. Oblong, 36 x 28 cm, 18 facs, 36 pp. (revision/reissue of Veröffentlichungen des Beethoven-Hauses, Band III/7, with expanded commentary). Beautiful 4-color halftone of the first movt. This outstanding new full-color facsimile shows many details that can not be seen in the old black-and-white reproduction. Together with a reconstruction of the 1st version and commentary in Ger-Eng. Wrappers, in decorative paper. $70 (more info... ) [item no.9436]


[Trio, piano, vln & vc, op.97, Bb minor, “Archduke”] Trio für Klavier, Violine und Violoncello B-dur op.79. Vollständige Faksimileausgabe der Handschrift Mus. ms. autogr. Beethoven Mend.-Stift. 3 der Biblioteka Jagiellońska, Krakow. Vorwort von Mitsuko Uchida, Einleitung von Julia Runge.
[Henle Music Facsimiles, 28]. Munich, 2019. Oblong, 35 x 29 cm, 32, c. xxiv pp. Beautiful 4-color halftone of the “Archduke” Trio, a work dedicated to Archduke Rudolph of Austria, and regarded as the greatest of all works for this combination of instruments. The Trio in B-flat was probably performed at the Archduke's palace soon after it was written, but its public premiere did not take place until April 11, 1814, on which occasion the violinist was Ignaz Schuppanzigh (leader of the famous string quartet that introduced many of Beethoven's quartets and later some of Schubert's), the cellist was Joseph Linke (for whom Beethoven composed sonatas), and the pianist was Beethoven himself, in his last public appearance at the keyboard (Richard Freed). It’s unclear whether this autograph, with inscription “Trio am 3ten März 1811”, is actually from 1811 or whether the inscription was added later. Despite the presence of editorial/publisher’s markings this copy does not seems to to have served as the faircopy. Hardbound with decorative paper boards and pasted title etikette, produced on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Beethoven birth. $196 (more info... ) [item no.9604]

[Sonatas, violin, bc, “Mystery Sonatas”] Rosenkranz-Sonaten. Bayerische Staatsbibliothek München, Mus. Mss 4123. Vorgelegt von Manfred Hermann Schmid. [Im Anhang:] Faksimile der “Türken-Sonate” aus dem Kodex Ms XIV 726 (Nummer 80, Bll. 162r bis 163v) des Wiener Minoritenkonvents].
Denkmäler der Musik in Salzburg, Faksimile-Ausgaben, 14. Munich, 2008. Oblong, 30 x 22 cm, 86, xxx, 4 pp + 1 foldout. New color reproduction of the magnificent presentation copy (non autograph, sole surviving source), dedicated to the Archbishop Maximilian Gandolph von Khuenberg. These fifteen wonderful sonatas, abstract commentaries on biblical incidents traditionally grouped into three groups of five—Joyful (his early life), Sorrowful (his passion), Glorious (his ressurection)—are noteworthy for their use of scordatura and their powerful preludes. They originally were performed in the lecture hall “Aula Academica” of Salzburg University, which still contains fifteen paintings depicting the mysteries. In same manner biblical illustrations—small engraved medallions—were glued in the manuscript at the beginning of each piece. The work ends with the passacaglia for solo violin, one of the most beautiful and soaring pieces of the German baroque. This new facsimile edition importantly includes a facsimile of a concordance of the tenth sonata (from MS XIV 726, Wiener Minoritenkonvents) — ”Türken-Sonate”—where the same music has programmatic titles: “Der Türcken Anmarch”, “Der Türcken Belägerung der Stadt Wien”, “Der Türcken stürmen”, “Anmarsch der Christen”, “Treffen der Christen”, “Durchgang der Türcken”, “Victori der Christen”. In Ms XIV 726, a composite source of violin music by Biber, Schmelzer and others, the scribe attributes the Türken-Sonate to “Schmelzer”. Introduction in Ger. Cloth. $179 (more info... ) [item no.9028]

Le marteau sans maître. Fac-similé de l’épure et de la première mise au net de la partition / Facsimile of the Draft Score and the First Fair Copy of the Full Score. Édité par / Edited by Pascal Decroupet.
Eine Publikation der Paul Sacher Stiftung. Mainz, 2005. Oblong, 38 x 30 cm. 215 pp. Beautiful full-color facsimile edition of the autograph draft score and fair copy, produced on the occasion of the 80th birthday of the composer. Since its premiere 50 years ago at the 1955 Baden-Baden Festival, “Le marteau sans maître”, with its novel scoring (contralto, alto flute, viola, guitar, vibraphone, xylorimba and unpitched percussion) and poetry by René Char in four of the nine interlocked movements, has been considered one of the most outstanding serial works of the postwar avantgarde. Commentators have pointed out its wonderful hypnotic soundworld, complex rhythmic structure, and sudden bursts of instrumental crossfire, creating such a demand on the performers that some fifty rehearsals were required before its premiere. This excellent facsimile offers an exciting entry into Boulez’ “workshop”—allowing us to examine, side by side, the pencil draft score, final ink version, as well as a selection of sketch pages. Handsome binding in red linen with slipcase. $254 (more info... ) [item no.8588]

[Sonata, violin, piano, no.1, op.78, G major] Sonate für Klavier und Violine Nr. 1 G-Dur Opus 78. Faksimile nach dem Autograph der Wienbibliothek im Rathaus, Musiksammlung, Wien. Mit einem Geleitwort von Julia Fischer und einer Einführung von Eberhard Hüppe.
Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 27. Laaber, 2013. Oblong, 38 x 30 cm, xxii, 36 pp. 3-color halftone of the autograph score signed “June 1879”. It's the composer's first sonata for violin & piano, sometimes referred to as the “Regenlied Sonata” because of the self borrowing of the first two bars from the song Regenlied (op.59 no.3) for the main theme of the third movement. Its melancholic mood has been recently connected with Brahms' sadness over the deteriorating health and eventual death of his godson, Felix Schumann—son of Clara and Robert—who intermittently strove to become a violinist. The autograph is teeming with corrections and alterations, most likely made shortly after the first performance of the piece in August 1879 given by Brahms and Joachim in a private setting. The sonata received its first public performance by Robert Heckmann & Marie Heckmann-Hertig in Bonn, 8 Nov. 1879. Hardbound. $124 (more info... ) [item no.9332]

Clarinettist Richard Mühlfeld (b.1856), a soloist and chamber virtuoso with the Meininger Hofkapelle, gave Brahms the impetus to write this beautiful Trio, whose composition is also closely tied with the Clarinet Quintet, op.115. The work premiered on 24. Nov. 1891, played directly from the manuscript, Brahms at the piano and Mühlfeld and Robert Hausmann respectively playing clarinet and cello. This facsimile represents the publishing debut of the venerable music publisher Dr. Hans Schneider.

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. $68 (more info... ) [item no.8448]

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. Handsome binding with green laid paper boards and embossed label.

Chicago, 2008. Oblong, 35 x 27 cm, 11, 98 pp. “Reissue” of Library of Congress 1976 facsimile edition using new full-color digital photography. The autograph score dates from c.1780. Known as the “Great Wind Serenade” or “Serenade for 13 Wind Instruments”, this brilliant 7-movement piece is Mozart’s first major work composed in Vienna. Scored for 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 basset horns, 2 pairs of horns, 2 bassoons and a contrabass, Mozart exploits all the possible mixtures of sonorities—no instrument is treated in true concertante fashion, but rather each instrument strives to distinguish itself, true to it own character. The beautifully crafted serenade—intimate, cheerful, witty and symphonic in style—was obviously written to impress and “open doors” in the composer’s new city.

Leipzig, 1989. Oblong, 33 x 25 cm, xiii, 14 pp. Collotype of the autograph score completed August 10, 1787.

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]

SAINT-SAËNS, Camille, 1835-1921

Le carnaval des animaux. Fac-similé du manuscrit autographe / The Carnival of the Animals. Facsimile of the Autograph Manuscripts. Introduction Marie-Gabrielle Soret.
De Main de Maître, 2. Turnhout, 2018. 30 x 36.6 cm, 192 pp ( 127 color). Full-color facsimile of the autograph full score—“Stichvorlage”. The second volume of the series “De main de maître”, a facsimile collection devoted to orchestral scores of the most prestigious sources conserved in the Music Department of the Bibliothèque National de France. If there is one work in all of Saint-Saëns’ musical output that supremely captures the disposition so typical of the composer, it is The Carnival of the Animals, completed in Feb. 1886, and created for friends and performers close to Saint-Saëns and performed about 15 times between 1886 and 1894 to a small audience. Because Saint-Saëns feared that his “zoological fantasy” would damage his reputation, the work was published in its entirety only after his death. Since then, its immense popularity has continued to grow, so much so that it is now enjoyed by music lovers and the general public alike. Marie-Gabrielle Soret, a Saint-Saëns specialist, provides a detailed description of the work and the context of its creation, the facsimile includes the 14 numbers of The Carnival of the Animals. It reveals the composer’s handwriting, all the performance directions as he noted them, and the playful animal drawings with which he decorated his score—a fish for “Aquarium”, the skeleton of a dinosaur for “Fossiles”, and the pale blue pencil silhouette of a swan to illustrate the famous “Swan”. Commentary in Fr-Eng. Hardbound, with colorful dust jacket. $289 (more info... ) [item no.9580]

[Henle Music Facsimiles, 25]. Munich, 2014. Oblong, 35 x 29 cm, xxi, 74 pp. Deluxe full-color facsimile of the autograph. Schubert’s Trio in Eb major op. 100 underwent many changes during its composition. The manuscript, parts of which were greatly revised, bears eloquent witness to this and offers an opportunity to trace the intricacies of Schubert’s phrasing and articulation. This source is in a private collection and this facsimile makes it accessible to the public for the very first time. In a letter to his publisher in 1828, Schubert explicitly dedicated the work to “no one, save those who find pleasure in it”. Commentary in Ger-Eng. Hardbound. $120 (more info... ) [item no.9360]

The work may have been composed for Ferdinand Bogner, a flutist and friend of the composer. Introduction in Ger-Eng. Hardbound. $102 (more info... ) [item no.9141]


SHOSTAKOVICH, Dmitri, 1906-1975

Sonate für Viola und Klavier / Sonata for Viola and Piano, op.147. Facsimile Edition.
[Hamburg], c.2000. 24 x 32 cm, 8, 68 pp. Color facsimile of the autograph fair copy issued on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the composer’s death. 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.
