Urtext editions and our app at the Musikmesse in Frankfurt
Dear Reader,
 
The large international spring music fair will soon be opening its doors. From 7th to 10th April in Frankfurt am Main the » Musikmesse will, for the first time ever, be open every day (Thursday to Sunday) from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. for both private and trade visitors. An accompanying festival will transform Frankfurt into the city of music during the fair.
 
We will be making a small but important contribution, as we will be unveiling a wealth of new Urtext editions and scholarly publications. And you can also try out the "Henle Library" app at our booth in Hall 8 and have a completely new musical experience.
 
We look forward to seeing you!
 
With very best wishes
 
 

Dr. Wolf-Dieter Seiffert
Managing Director

Alban Berg
String Quartet op. 3

Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
Alban Berg's String Quartet can be considered to be one of the founding works of the Second Viennese School. Even today the extremely complex work places the highest technical demands on the interpreters.

Antonín Dvorák
String Quartet F major op. 96 (American Quartet)
Editor: Peter Jost

After a twelve-year interval, Dvorák once again turned his attention to the string quartet in summer 1893. He had been musical director in New York since autumn 1892 and spent the summer in Spillville (Iowa) where a group of Czech immigrants had settled, thus making him feel at home.

Berg's String Quartet with new parts
 
Our Urtext edition of Berg's String Quartet contains something truly different. It offers parts that are particularly good to play from in which each musician can also follow what is going on in the other parts. The star viola player Tabea Zimmermann gave the following spontaneous reaction to this innovation:
 
"Fantastic! I venture to say that quartet parts like these are a first. Many thanks for this courageous step!"

Erik Satie's 150th birthday
 
A composer at the turn of the twentieth century whose piano music is still popular today: Erik Satie.
 
His piano works are for the most part very easy to master but at the same time characterized by impressionist elements - a rather rare combination. On 17th May 2016 we will be celebrating his 150th birthday. Reason enough perhaps to turn again to his music?
 
When you do so, you will find some of the strangest indications that our Urtext catalogue probably has to offer, including, "so as to form a hollow", "open your head", "on the tongue", "pale as a corpse" or "slow down pleasantly".
 
Enjoy!
