Scriabin Anniversary Year 2015
Dear Reader,
 
They are all there: we have just published Alexander Scriabin’s » ten Piano Sonatas in high-quality Henle Urtext editions, right on time for the centenary celebrations (the 100th anniversary of his death) in April! They provide fascinating insights into the composer’s stylistic development. The first works are still deeply rooted in the late Romantic tradition; the late works frequently go beyond the borders of tonality.
 
In addition we have issued a great many other new editions in time for the upcoming Music Fair in Frankfurt. Please do take a look!
 
With very best wishes
 
 

Dr. Wolf-Dieter Seiffert
Managing Director

Rachmaninoff, Sergei
Prélude g minor op. 23 no. 5
Editor: Dominik Rahmer, Fingering: Marc-André Hamelin
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
As indestructible as Rachmaninoff’s c-sharp-minor Prélude (HN 1211) may be, it is not his only Prélude to have begun a “solo career” of its own: with its rousing rhythms and rhapsodic middle section, the famous piece in g minor certainly takes its place among them.

Editor: Michael Struck, Piano reduction: Johannes Umbreit, Fing. vn: Frank Peter Zimmermann, Fing. vc: Heinrich Schiff

Elgar, Edward
Salut d'amour op. 12 for Violoncello and Piano
Editor: Rupert Marshall-Luck, Fingering: Rolf Koenen, Fing. vc: Claus Kanngiesser
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
Edward Elgar’s Salut d’amour is one of those pieces that has a particularly haunting melody. Up to now there has only been an arrangement of the cello part made by the original publisher, presumably with Elgar’s approval. We are now for the very first time publishing the version following Elgar’s autograph manuscript, which for unknown reasons had never been released.

Fauré, Gabriel
Violin Sonata no. 2 e minor op. 108
Editor: Fabian Kolb, Fingering: Pascal Rogé, Fing. vn: Ernst Schliephake
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
The 2nd Sonata concentrates on the essentials, and on closer contact turns out to be a fascinating composition that harmonically explores the limits of tonality, delving deep into the “Modernism” of the 1920s.

Schumann, Robert
String Quartets op. 41
Editor: Ernst Herttrich
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
At the first private performances the audience was enthusiastic and it was Mendelssohn’s praise in particular that occasioned Schumann to dedicate the new works to him.

Rachmaninoff, Sergei
Vocalise op. 34 no. 14 for Voice and Piano
Editor: Dominik Rahmer
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
A particular highlight is the separate vocal part that not only serves singers well but also all those instrumentalists who wish to play this wonderful piece using the original solo part.

Reger, Max
Clarinet Quintet in A major op. 146
Editor: Michael Kube
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
This melancholic quintet that is worked through in a strictly motivic way was to be Reger’s last opus. Shortly after he had sent it to his publisher, he died of heart attack in May 1916. Almost one hundred years later, we are now publishing it for the first time in an Urtext edition.
