Claude Debussy
La plus que lente - Valse
Editor: Ernst-Günter Heinemann, Fingering: Hans-Martin Theopold
Urtext Edition, paperbound
Slow waltzes enjoyed a special vogue in Parisian salons of the early twentieth century, leading Debussy - with a twinkle in his eye - to produce his piano waltz "La plus que lente" ("The Slower-than-Slow").

Edvard Grieg
Wedding Day at Troldhaugen op. 65 no. 6
Editor: Einar Steen-Nøkleberg, Ernst-Günter Heinemann, Fingering: Einar Steen-Nøkleberg
Urtext Edition, paperbound
With his 66 Lyric Pieces Edvard Grieg created a multifaceted treasury of piano miniatures and character pieces. Many have become piano classics, none more so than The Wedding at Troldhaugen, which we offer here in a separate edition.

Anton Webern
Variations op. 27
Editor: Ullrich Scheideler
Urtext Edition, paperbound
Following Alban Berg, Anton Webern is the second composer of the Second Viennese School to be included in the Henle catalogue. Webern's music is known for its extreme brevity and strict organisation. A performance of the Variations op. 27 lasts even shorter than ten minutes - a short period of time during which the audience experiences true extremes.

Maurice Ravel
Violin Sonata G major
Editor: Ulrich Krämer, Fingering: Pascal Rogé, Fing. vn: Christian Tetzlaff
Urtext Edition, paperbound
Inspired by Béla Bartók’s violin sonatas, Ravel planned his own sonata for violin and piano in 1922, but at first did not get beyond sketches. Many interruptions ensued and the work was only finished in 1927. Yet it still succeeded in winning a permanent place in violin repertoire - not least because of its middle movement inspired by jazz elements and the "blues".

Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky
Valse-Scherzo op. 34
Editor: Alexander Komarov, Fingering: Klaus Schilde, Fing. vn: Ingolf Turban
Urtext Edition, paperbound
Alongside the famous violin concerto, numerous other violin works by Tchaikovsky have found their way into the standard repertoire for violin. An outstanding example is the Valse-Scherzo, which sparkles with witty playfulness. He composed it in 1877 for the violinist Josef Kotek, a close friend and student.

Camille Saint-Saëns
Morceau de Concert in f minor op. 94
Editor: Dominik Rahmer, Fingering: Klaus Schilde
Urtext Edition, paperbound
As with Schumann's "Concert Piece for four Horns" op. 86 (HN 1138) Saint-Saëns' "Morceau de Concert" was also composed with the idea of exploiting the technical possibilities of the new valve-horn mechanism.

Ludwig van Beethoven
"Egmont" Overture op. 84
Editor: Helmut Hell, Preface: Ernst Herttrich
Urtext Edition, Study score, paperbound
When Beethoven received a commission from Vienna's Burgtheater to compose stage music for Goethe's tragedy Egmont in 1809, he viewed it as a great honour. Beethoven repeatedly declared later on that he had received no honorarium from the theatre's management, but had written the music "solely out of love for the poet".

Catalogue of Trio Sonatas in print published
On 18 November 2016 a special new publication in our catalogue was presented in Heidelberg: a catalogue that is a treasure trove for musicians and musicologists alike! For the first time ever, all of the trio sonatas that were printed in the 17th and 18th centuries have been compiled systematically. These two volumes, in the RISM series, first of all form the basis for all research into the trio sonata genre.
Musicians can, however, also rediscover excellent compositions and uncover treasures. Short articles on all of the around 600 composers of the sonatas make it very easy to find out about the often little-known people and their works.
So it was a cause for celebration when the editors of the catalogue were able to present it after decades of work.
