New Urtext editions and our Piano Competition 2017
Dear Reader,
 
Spurred on by its success over the past few years, we will also be hosting the Henle Piano Competition on YouTube in 2017. As always, children between the ages of 6 and 11 are invited to take part, but this time there are three different age groups. We have, of course, increased the number of prizes accordingly.
 
Do you know any young piano students or do your children play the piano? Then please tell them about the competition or forward them the information. And this time it's Mozart on the agenda.

Thanks for passing this on and we hope you enjoy reading about our new publications!
 
With very best wishes

Béla Bartók
Sonatina
Editor: László Somfai
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
Bartók used different melodies taken from Romanian instrumental folk music in his Sonatina. A look at the sources shows how, in 1915, the piece slowly evolved out of a series of piano transcriptions of Romanian folk melodies into its three-movement form.

Gabriel Fauré
Dolly op. 56, for Piano Four-hands
Editor: Christiane Strucken-Paland, Fingering: Andreas Groethuysen
Urtext Edition, Arrangement for Piano Four-hands, paperbound
 
The six pieces in this little suite were written between 1893 and 1896. They were inspired by Hélène Bardac, the daughter of a singer with whom he was friends. The girl was born in 1892 and called "Dolly" on account of her small, delicate figure.

Maurice Ravel
Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune
Editor: Denis Herlin, Fingering: Andreas Groethuysen
Urtext Edition, Arrangement for Piano Four-hands, paperbound
 
Ravel had limitless admiration for Debussy's famous orchestral work, going so far as to say in an interview that it was his innermost wish to die to the sounds of this "unique marvel in the whole of music".

Camille Saint-Saëns
Sonata for Violoncello and Piano no. 2 in F major op. 123
Editor: Peter Jost, Fingering: Pascal Rogé, Fing. vc: David Geringas
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
After his first cello sonata of 1872 had fast gained popularity, the publisher kept asking the composer to write a second sonata for this scoring. But it was only in March 1905, in the mild climate of Algeria, that Saint-Saëns finally relented and composed a large sonata with four movements.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
A Musical Joke K. 522 for 2 Violins, Viola, Basso and 2 Horns in F
Editor: Felix Loy
Urtext Edition, paperbound
 
This Henle edition is full of mistakes! We can freely admit this, because the odd notes here all come from Mozart himself - he consciously inserted them into his Musical Joke.

What is Beethoven doing?
 
It's an unusual picture of Beethoven, isn't it? In our Beethoven Quiz we ask you the question: What is he doing?
 
You can answer this question, as well as nine further ones, online and see how much you know about the master from Bonn. If you like, you can then take part in our prize draw at the end - there are some great Beethoven prizes.
 
And if you haven't already taken part, you have until the end of February to do so!
