Rückert - Schumann - Liszt: Liebeslied
Dear Reader,
 
Are you familiar with Friedrich Rückert's poem "Widmung" ["Dedication"] ("Du meine Seele, Du meine Herz")? It is hard to imagine a more sensitive setting than the one written by Robert Schumann. And come to think of it: Could anyone have made a more impassioned arrangement of this song for solo piano than Franz Liszt - it's called "Liebeslied"? I don't think so.
 
Although Liszt's piece is not child's play as far as piano technique is concerned, his "Liebeslied" is not as tricky as it might sound when you first » listen to it. Would you like to try it out?
 
We are now proud to present this work as well as other new Urtext editions. We hope you enjoy them!
 
With very best wishes
 
 

Dr. Wolf-Dieter Seiffert

Béla Bartók
Suite op. 14
Editor: László Somfai, Fingering: Dénes Várjon
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
The four-movement Suite op. 14 was composed in 1916 and was one of Bartók's favourite piano works throughout his life. Unlike in his other works for piano, he did not use any folksong melodies or folkloristic elements here. Instead, he endeavoured to achieve a new, more "abstract", transparent piano style that forgoes ornament and embellishment.

Béla Bartók
15 Hungarian Peasant Songs
Editor: László Somfai, Fingering: Dénes Várjon
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
In a note for the planned first edition of his Hungarian Peasant Songs in 1914, Bartók wrote that "the melodies published here are folksongs in the truest sense of the word; more precisely, peasant songs". Bartók initially withdrew this work from publication, however, and added new pieces to it using folk music he had collected in the meantime.

Franz Liszt
Love Song (Dedication) from "Myrthen" op. 25 (Robert Schumann)
Editor: Annette Oppermann, Fingering: Markus Bellheim, Preface: Mária Eckhardt
Urtext Edition, Arrangement for Piano, paperbound
 
In his virtuosic piano arrangement of Schumann's "Widmung" ("Du meine Seele, du mein Herz"), Franz Liszt transformed this intimate song into a dramatic declaration that reaches its powerful climax at the phrase "Mein guter Geist, mein bess'res Ich", using chords to be played con somma passione.

Franz Schubert
String Quartet a minor op. 29 D 804 (Rosamunde)
Editor: Egon Voss
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
The "Rosamunde" Quartet was the first and only string quartet that was not only publicly performed in Schubert's lifetime but also published in parts. It is fortunate for us that this was the case because the autograph of this much-loved quartet is missing today and the only source for the work is the first edition.

Niels Wilhelm Gade
Fantasy Pieces op. 43
Editor: Nicolai Pfeffer, Fingering: Klaus Schilde
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
The four pieces in this collection can of course be performed separately, and are ideal teaching material. Our editor, the clarinettist Nicolai Pfeffer, has drawn upon the German and Danish first editions and the autograph in Copenhagen as sources, and consequently has been able to eliminate several discrepancies found in older editions.

Henle Piano Competition 2018
 
Its success in previous years has spurred us on to hold the Henle Piano Competition on YouTube for a seventh time this year. Once again we are inviting children between the ages of 6 and 11 to take part in three different age categories. They can win editions of music and money.
 
Do you have any children who play the piano or piano students in this age group? Or perhaps you know a young and enthusiastic piano player? If so, please tell them about the competition or pass on the information. And this time it's Chopin on the programme.
 
We look forward to listening to the participants!

Schumann's Piano Quartet is now available in the Henle Library
 
Schumann's famous Piano Quartet op. 47 is now available in the Henle Library app. And the incredible Fauré Quartet contributed all of the fingerings!
 
Dirk Mommertz, the pianist with this quartet, is very impressed with our app: "A great invention! Studying, playing and teaching - it makes everything simpler and at the same time more versatile!"
