Debussy: the centenary of the death of a stylistic innovator
Dear Reader,
 
Claude Debussy died one hundred years ago. He was often referred to as "a stylistic innovator", "a pioneer of modernist music" or "one of the day after tomorrow".
 
This is why his piano works and chamber music have long been important jewels among our blue Urtext editions. You can find a comprehensive list » here.
 
You'll find more news as well as information about new editions in the following newsletter. In addition we are also raffling off ten vouchers for admission tickets to the upcoming Music Fair in Frankfurt. Why not come and join us!
 
With very best wishes
 
 

Dr. Wolf-Dieter Seiffert

Ludwig van Beethoven
Piano Sonata no. 27 e minor op. 90
Editor: Norbert Gertsch, Murray Perahia, Fingering: Murray Perahia
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
"It is, aside from two passages, one of Beethoven's easiest; but as far as the performance of individual passages and its whole spirit is concerned, requires every kind of care", thus wrote a contemporary critic.

Johannes Brahms
Piano Sonata f minor op. 5
Editor: Katrin Eich, Fingering: Andreas Boyde
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
Johannes Brahms's piano sonatas opp. 1, 2 and 5 were among the first works that the then 20-year-old composer published. Much of the music of the f-minor Sonata is closely connected to Brahms's visit to Robert and Clara Schumann in Düsseldorf in the autumn of 1853.

Frédéric Chopin
Scherzo b flat minor op. 31
Editor: Norbert Müllemann, Fingering: Hans-Martin Theopold
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
Chopin gave the "scherzo" a character all of its own, and his second Scherzo is probably the best known of the four works that he composed in that genre.

Claude Debussy
Valse romantique
Editor: Ernst-Günter Heinemann, Fingering: Hans-Martin Theopold
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
In his youth, when still searching for his own personal style, Debussy composed a series of short, stand-alone piano pieces. This charming waltz is of moderate difficulty and thus ideal either as a pedagogical piece or for concert performance.

Antonín Dvorák
Humoresques op. 101
Editor: Christian Schaper, Ullrich Scheideler, Fingering: Jacob Leuschner
Urtext Edition, paperbound

Gabriel Fauré
Nocturne no. 6 D flat major op. 63
Editor: Felix Loy, Fingering: Rolf Koenen
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
Fauré's 13 Nocturnes form the most significant group of piano character pieces in his oeuvre. Despite their title - which places them in the tradition of John Field and Frédéric Chopin - Fauré here develops a genre all of his own.

Edvard Grieg
Norwegian Dances op. 35
Editor: Ernst-Günter Heinemann, Einar Steen-Nøkleberg, Fingering: Einar Steen-Nøkleberg
Urtext Edition, Version for Piano, paperbound
 
The decisive role that Norwegian folk music played for Edvard Grieg can be felt in almost all of his works. For his Norwegian Dances op. 35, presented here in an Urtext edition, Grieg took old folk tunes from a collection published by the musician and researcher Ludvig Mathias Lindeman.

Antonín Dvorák
String Quartet G major op. 106
Editor: Peter Jost
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
In autumn 1895, after returning from New York once and for all, Dvorák took up his former position as teacher at the Prague Conservatory. This clearly had an inspiring impact on him because in the space of just four weeks he composed a new string quartet in G major.

Gioacchino Rossini
Une larme for Double bass and Piano
Editor: Tobias Glöckler, Fing. db: Tobias Glöckler
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
In the late 1850s, when Rossini was composing only for his own private pleasure, he wrote a little elegy for double bass and piano that he entitled "une larme" ("a tear"). As in Henle's other Urtext editions for this instrument, the double bass specialist Tobias Glöckler has prepared a version in solo tuning and orchestral tuning and added fingerings and bowings to the solo part.

Erwin Schulhoff
Hot-Sonata for Alto Saxophone and Piano
Editor: Frank Lunte, Fingering: Tatjana Blome
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
Erwin Schulhoff was one of the most original personalities on the music scene of the early 20th century. Schulhoff's Hot-Sonata of 1930 displays the influence of jazz not least through the use of the saxophone as solo instrument, but also in its pithy rhythms, its glitzy harmonies and its use of playing techniques such as glissandi. The Hot-Sonata is published here for the first-ever time in an Urtext edition.

Piano Trio d minor op. 120
Editor: Fabian Kolb, Fingering: Klaus Schilde
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
The idea for this, the penultimate work in Fauré's oeuvre, came in 1922 from his publisher Jacques Durand, who had published Ravel's famous Piano Trio just a few years earlier.
