A clothbound gift
Dear Reader,
In 1725 Johann Sebastian Bach presented his wife Anna Magdalena with a little notebook. This prettily-bound blank volume with gilt-edged pages was then used as a musical album by the singer. Not only Anna Magdalena, but also her husband, his son Carl Philipp Emanuel and other individuals wrote down their own compositions in it, as well as pieces by third parties.
We have had an Urtext edition of this collection of predominantly easy piano pieces - there are also some pieces for singers in it - for some time. But we are now also making it available in a high-quality clothbound edition, entirely in the spirit of Bach's gift to his wife.
Perhaps you know of someone you might like to give it to? » more information and purchase
You'll find information about our other new Urtext editions in this newsletter.
With very best wishes

Dr. Wolf-Dieter Seiffert
Managing Director

Johannes Brahms
Chaconne from Partita no. 2 d minor (Johann Sebastian Bach), Arrangement for Piano, left Hand
Editor: Valerie Woodring Goertzen, Fingering: Markus Bellheim
Urtext Edition, Arrangement for Piano, paperbound
The d-minor Chaconne is undoubtedly the most famous movement of all of Bach's 6 Sonatas and Partitas for violin solo. Johannes Brahms marvelled at how a single staff of music could offer "a whole world of the deepest thoughts and the mightiest emotions".

Franz Liszt
Spring night from Song Cycle op. 39 (Robert Schumann)
Editor: Annette Oppermann, Preface: Mária Eckhardt
Urtext Edition, Arrangement for Piano, paperbound
Robert Schumann's "Frühlingsnacht" ("Spring night") was one of his most popular songs even in the 19th century. Franz Liszt made a piano arrangement of it that in the space of under 70 measures emerges as a veritable concert piece.

Editor: Dominik Rahmer, Fingering: Marc-André Hamelin

Camille Saint-Saëns
Piano Concerto no. 5 F major op. 103 (Egyptian)
Editor: Peter Jost, Piano reduction: Johannes Umbreit, Fingering: Pascal Rogé
Urtext Edition, Piano reduction, paperbound
This was the last concerto that Saint-Saëns wrote for his own instrument, the piano. Its subtitle has a dual meaning. Firstly, it was composed quickly in Luxor and Cairo in early 1896; and secondly, the composer incorporated elements of Egyptian and oriental music within it.

Johannes Brahms
String Sextet no. 1 B flat major op. 18

Anton Bruckner
Two Aequali for three Trombones
Editor: Dominik Rahmer
Urtext Edition, paperbound
In spite of the pieces' early date, the romantic, expressive harmonies of the two brief Aequale already reveal the "true" Bruckner, and look forwards to the chorale-like trombone passages in his later symphonies.

Johann Baptist Georg Neruda
Concerto for Horn (Trumpet) and Strings E flat major
Editor: Dominik Rahmer, Piano reduction: Christoph Sobanski, Cadenzas: Reinhold Friedrich
Urtext Edition, paperbound
One of the best-loved trumpet concertos today is actually a horn concerto: Neruda composed it in about 1750 at the Dresden Court, where he met the greatest horn virtuosos of the day.
