Our latest Urtext editions
Dear Reader,
He is one of the best of the new generation of pianists: Igor Levit. And he has just completed an incredibly successful tour of Asia. But before embarking on it, he came to the publishing house and aside from giving us a taste of his captivating piano playing, paid us an incredible compliment on our "Henle Library" app.

Johannes Brahms
Piano Sonata f sharp minor op. 2
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 20-year-old composer published. They were composed in 1852/53, although the Sonata in f-sharp minor was apparently the first of the three to be composed, as it was finished by November 1852.

Johannes Brahms
Works for Organ
Editor: George S. Bozarth
Urtext Edition, paperbound
Johannes Brahms's organ works in a sense "frame" his whole oeuvre. He wrote several preludes and fugues and the chorale prelude "O Traurigkeit, o Herzeleid" in the mid-1850s, at a time when he was making an intensive study of counterpoint. The Eleven Chorale Preludes op. 122, on the other hand, are Brahms’s final work, composed in 1896, immediately before and after the death of Clara Schumann.

Richard Wagner/Franz Liszt
Overture to "Tannhäuser", Concert Paraphrase for Piano (Richard Wagner)
Editor: Peter Jost, Fingering: Andreas Groethuysen
Urtext Edition, paperbound
Looking back in 1876, Liszt admitted candidly to the publisher Breitkopf & Härtel that his "Wagner transcriptions" had "only served as modest propaganda for Wagner's noble genius, using the meagre possibilities of the piano".

Gabriel Fauré
Papillon op. 77
Editor: Jean-Christophe Monnier, Fing. vc: David Geringas
Urtext Edition, paperbound
After the great success of his Élégie, Fauré's publisher Hamelle urged him to write another, similarly effective piece for cello and piano. Papillon was probably already composed in 1884, though it was only published in 1898.

Georg Philipp Telemann
Methodical Sonatas for Flute or Violin and Continuo, Volume II
Editor and figured bass realization: Wolfgang Kostujak
Urtext Edition, paperbound
"Methodical" was how Telemann's six sonatas were described when they were published in 1732, because they included a second, ornamented version of the simple melody line of the solo instrument for the slow opening movements and for the second movement of the c-minor sonata.

Johannes Brahms
Clarinet Trio a minor op. 114 for Piano, Clarinet (Viola) and Violoncello
Editor: Katharina Loose-Einfalt, Fingering: Klaus Schilde
Urtext Edition, paperbound
Johannes Brahms's late chamber works are surely among the most splendid music ever written for the clarinet. In the last years of his life, Brahms seems to have become weary of composing - but fortunately for posterity, in 1891 he met the solo clarinettist of the Meiningen court orchestra, Richard Mühlfeld, whose mellifluous art of performance captivated him and inspired him to new works.
