  1. Hungarian Rhapsody No.2 - Franz Liszt - Piano Urtext

    Hungarian Rhapsody No.2 - Franz Liszt - Piano Urtext

    We have begun with numbers 2 and 6: in the coming years we will be producing editions of all of Franz Liszt’s “Hungarian Rhapsodies”, brilliant pianistic excesses and a favourite with all virtuosos. Hungarian folk music was a source of inspiration for Liszt throughout his life. The best known example is the “Rhapsodies hongroises” for piano, which made the charac-teristic syncopated rhythms of the puszta melodies and the fiery temperament of the czardas famous throughout the world. The popularity of these very demanding showpieces for the piano is shown by the countless arrangements which even include transcriptions for orchestra.? Les mer

  2. Piano Concerto no. 2 in c minor op. 18 for Piano and Orchestra - Sergei Rachmaninov - Urtext

    Piano Concerto no. 2 in c minor op. 18 for Piano and Orchestra - Sergei Rachmaninov - Urtext

    Rachmaninoff’s legendary Opus 18, often lovingly referred to as Rach 2,” is for many the epitome of the Romantic piano concerto. Following its acclaimed premiere in Moscow in 1901, it proved to be a show-stopper around the globe, finally helping cement Rachmaninoff’s international reputation as a composer. To this day, the concerto’s enchanting themes and elegiac melodies in the strings are considered the trademark of Rachmaninoff, indeed, of Russian music in general. For the first Urtext edition of this pivotal work, we were able to examine the original autograph score in Moscow’s Glinka Museum. Rachmaninoff’s own sound recordings were also consulted. The newly prepared piano reduction ensures good playability: it accords exactly with the also newly edited orchestral score and parts. Both of these are available from Breitkopf & Härtel. Les mer

  3. Le Festin d'Ésope op. 39 no. 12 - Charles-Valentin Alkan Piano Urtext

    Le Festin d'Ésope op. 39 no. 12 - Charles-Valentin Alkan Piano Urtext

    Charles Valentin Alkan’s cycle of variations Le Festin d’Ésope derives from his monumental series of etudes op. 39, the 12 Études dans tous les Tons Mineurs, and forms the culmination of that work. Now G. Henle Publishers presents, for the first time in an Urtext edition, what is by far the most well-known piano composition by this French pianist and composer notorious for the extreme virtuosity of his works. Because no autograph manuscripts survive, the first edition from 1857 is the sole source. The premier Alkan scholar Wolfgang Rathert gives details about the life and œuvre of the composer in his preface, while fingerings are provided by the Italian keyboard virtuoso Vincenzo Maltempo, who has recorded numerous works by Alkan. By popular demand, this composer may also now finally assume his place in the Henle Urtext catalogue! Les mer

  4. Bach - French Overture B Minor BWV 831 - Piano Urtext

    Bach - French Overture B Minor BWV 831 - Piano Urtext

    In 1735 Johann Sebastian Bach published his French Overture BWV 831 together with the famous Italian Concerto as the second part of his “Clavier-Übung”. The designation Ouvertüre (Overture) can be somewhat misleading, since this work consists not just of an opening movement but also of a full-fledged partita with 11 movements: Ouvertüre, Courante, Gavotte I & II, Passepied I & II, Sarabande, Bourrée I & II, Gigue and Echo. In terms of melodic richness and rhythmic play it is on a par with its sister-pieces from Part 1 of the “Clavier Übung“, the 6 Partitas BWV 825-830. Les mer

  5. Bach - French Suites BVW 812-817 - Piano Urtext

    Bach - French Suites BVW 812-817 - Piano Urtext

    Johann Sebastian Bach’s three great cycles of suites belong to the fundamental canon of piano literature: the Partitas and the so-called English and French Suites. It is the French Suites that have long been by far the most popular – and this was also the case at the time that they were written. However, this also creates problems for an editor preparing an Urtext edition, because a vast number of copies of them were made by Bach’s circle of pupils, and these contain many presumably authentic variants. In this revised Henle Urtext edition, Ullrich Scheideler explains the complicated source situation with exemplary clarity. He lists the more minor source variants in footnotes; where there are major differences, both versions of individual movements are printed in full. Our opulent volume is rounded off with an appendix offering alternative and additional pieces. This Henle Urtext edition has been completely revised, and also offers new fingerings. It enables pianists and Bach enthusiasts alike to re-discover Bach’s universe for themselves! Les mer

  6. Bach - English Suites BWV 806-811 - Piano Urtext

    Bach - English Suites BWV 806-811 - Piano Urtext

    Although people might like to think that the “English Suites” were composed after the “French Suites”, “the temperamental and in part virtuoso flow of these Suites is more characteristic of the musical language of the young Bach” (from our preface). The kaleidoscopic variety of the six “English” Suites is breathtaking. One lifetime is not enough to exhaustively comprehend and penetrate them. We provide the sustainable musical basis for this, in different formats: the complete paperbound volume (HN 100), clothbound (HN 101), divided into Nos. 1–3 (HN 102) and Nos. 4–6 (HN 103) and last but not least in a very good value study edition with the identical musical text (HN 9100).

  7. Islamey Fantasie Orientale - Mili A Balakirev Piano Urtext

    Islamey Fantasie Orientale - Mili A Balakirev Piano Urtext

    “A wonderful piece, but very difficult – only a few will be able to master it …”. Since this pronouncement by Nicolai Rubinstein, who nonetheless premièred it with bravura, the work has unjustly been stuck with the label of “unplayable”. The wild, almost demonic character of this “oriental fantasy” has certainly contributed to this reputation: through the use of Caucasian and Armenian folk idioms Balakirev calls forth a keyboard firework that aroused the admiration even of the Titan Liszt. Our edition provides today’s pianists with a musical text that is not only reliable and accurate, but also clear and well-organised.? Les mer

  8. Etüden - Chopin

    Etüden - Chopin

    Chopin succeeded in doing something truly remarkable with his two cycles of Etudes op. 10 and op. 25, published in 1833 and 1837 respectively. Probably no one before him had composed technical practice pieces that at the same time reached such musical heights. Chopin’s Etudes are character pieces that are full of tension, written for the concert hall. The virtuosic works, including long-running hits such as the “Revolutionary Etude” op. 10 no. 12 belong to the pianist’s core repertoire. In addition to the two cycles op. 10 and op. 25, our Urtext edition also contains three Etudes without opus number, which Chopin composed for a Parisian piano method in 1840: wonderfully lyrical miniatures, which can hold their own with the 24 grand studies.

  9. The Seasons op. 37bis Tsjaikovskij. Piano Urtext

    The Seasons op. 37bis Tsjaikovskij. Piano Urtext

    As well as Tchaikovsky’s famous Piano Concerto, his extensive oeuvre for solo piano also makes an important contribution to romantic piano music. It includes “The Seasons” op. 37 – pleasant playable pieces that reflect a bygone bourgeois atmosphere and can therefore be assigned to the category of “domestic music”. These twelve intimate mood-pictures enable the pianist to plot the course of the twelve months of the year. No. 11, “Troika”, displays a Russian character particularly well, when in November the sleigh-bells and the cheerful singing of the passengers create an enchanting sound. Our edition is based on the autograph and the Russian first edition; moreover it contains Klaus Schilde’s highly regarded fingerings. Les mer

    Bach Flute Sonatas Volume 2

    It is now possible to add the epithet“previously“ to the formulation of these sonatas as “attributed to Bach” in the title of our Urtext edition, today it is assumed that none of the three sonatas was written by “Father” Bach, but rather by his son Carl Philipp Emanuel. Yet this, too, cannot be completely and unambiguously authenticated, doubts linger. In any case, the issue does not detract from the extraordinary popularity of, for example, the Sonatas in E flat major and g minor, which have stunningly beautiful slow movements. The sonatas are part of the flautist’s daily bread. Les mer

  12. 3 Intermezzi op. 117 - Piano. Johannes Brahms

    3 Intermezzi op. 117 - Piano. Johannes Brahms

    The three popular Intermezzi op. 117 can be seen as the epitome of Brahms’ late work for piano. Clara Schumann confessed: “In these pieces I at last feel musical life stir once again in my soul”. Brahms reacted, as he often did, in a rather brusque manner. Although he sometimes described the three Intermezzi as being “Wiegenlieder” (lullabies), he formally rejected this title: “It should then say, lullaby of an unhappy mother or of a disconsolate bachelor.” The new edition of these moderately difficult Intermezzi (level of difficulty 5/6) has now been revised following the musical text of the Brahms Complete Edition, and has fingerings by Andreas Boyde.

  13. Bach Flute Sonatas Vol 1

    Bach Flute Sonatas Vol 1

    The four Bach flute sonatas presented in this volume offer a genuine variety both in style and transmission. The first two are thoroughbass sonatas conceived for flute, string bass and harpsichord. Their time of origin is uncertain and might even date back to Bach’s Köthen period. In the transmitted version with obbligato harpsichord, the sonatas in b minor and A major BWV 1030 and 1032 are most probably arrrangements of earlier, no longer surviving works. The compositional interweaving of the sonatas for flute and harpsichord reaches its apogee in the contemplative b minor sonata, which is a masterpiece of the flute repertoire. By contrast, the A major sonata is captivating for its brilliant joyfulness and radiant colour. Les mer

    Piano Sonata A major K. 331 (300i) (with Alla Turca) - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

    A sensational finding provided the impetus for this new edition. In autumn 2014 a hitherto unknown Mozart autograph of the famous Piano Sonata in A major (with the enduring “Turkish March”) surfaced in Budapest. After a painstaking study of the manuscript and a meticulous comparison with all of the other sources, G. Henle Publishers is now issuing the first definitive Urtext edition of significant parts of this masterpiece (the new autograph does not contain the complete sonata). It must be said that there are serious deviations from the musical text as we know it. So we are proud to be able to say that it is not possible to seriously study this sonata without consulting our Urtext edition. Les mer

    Suites, Sonatas, Capriccios, Variations - Johann Sebastian Bach

    Apart from the major cycles (partitas, French and English suites), a whole series of separate keyboard suites by Bach have come down to us, including individual sonatas or sonata movements, variations, and fragments of various sorts called Capriccios. None of them reached the degree of popularity of the aforementioned large collections. Most of them go back to Bach’s youth and student years, to wit, to the years between 1700 and 1710, and do not yet reach the mastery of the later years. However, this is compensated by the enormous joy one derives in playing these works. Les mer

    Piano Sonata op. 1 - Alban Berg

    Berg’s pupil Adorno once said, “Whoever is seriously trying to comprehend Berg’s music should closely apply themselves to the eleven-page piano sonata”. It is tempting to enlarge upon this statement: Whoever is trying to get to grips with New Music will not be able to avoid Berg’s opus 1. It is one of the most frequently played sonatas amongst the Second Viennese School piano compositions. With this publication Henle is introducing Urtext editions to classical modernism. Once again, pianists will find flawless engraving, an absolutely reliable musical text and a commentary based on the sources. This edition is worldwide available. Les mer

  18. 51 Exercises for Piano - Brahms

    51 Exercises for Piano - Brahms

    Teaching the piano was an important source of income for Brahms, as it was for many nineteenth-century composers. This gave rise to collections of exercises which at first he only occasionally wrote down, but later shared with other pianists (e. g. Clara Schumann). It was only after he had largely given up this educational and pianistic activity that he considered publishing them. In order to reflect their level, he suggested “all kinds of instruments of torture, from the thumb screw to the iron maiden” for the title page. We are now publishing this collection, which is essential for Romantic piano playing, as an Urtext edition, following the musical text of the New Brahms Complete Edition. Les mer

    Piano Pieces - Brahms

    Johannes Brahms’ late piano works in the form of the two editions HN 36 (paperbound) and 37 (clothbound) have been a cornerstone of the Henle catalogue ever since the early 1950s. In 2011 the volume with piano pieces (HN 6014) was published in the new Brahms Complete Edition, an edition of these important works that reflected the latest in scholarly research. Having already published single volumes of our Urtext editions of opus numbers 76, 79 and 116–119 with the up-to-date musical text in the Complete Edition, we are now rounding off this Brahms project by publishing the revised volume of collected works, available as a classic paperbound, clothbound or handy study edition.

    Sonaten, Scherzo und Balladen - Brahms. Piano

    With opuses 1, 2, 4, 5, and 10, this volume contains virtually all of Johannes Brahms’ early piano oeuvre, with which the budding composer and pianist introduced himself to the public. The Scherzo op. 4 from 1851 stands alongside the sonatas composed between 1851–53 as a substantial single movement that particularly delighted Robert Schumann, leading him to direct the public’s special attention to his young colleague in his famous article “New Paths” in 1853. Written the following year, the Four Ballades op. 10 complete the volume. Already they strike a new, more Romantic note that Brahms described to Clara Schumann thus: “They are not very difficult, and even less difficult to understand”. This Urtext edition offers a revision of the musical text based on the new Brahms Complete Edition, with an extensive preface by editor Katrin Eich. Les mer

  21. Mephisto Waltz - Franz Liszt

    Mephisto Waltz - Franz Liszt

    When Liszt took over the direction of the Court Opera in Weimar, he spent a great deal of time exploring Goethe’s works. He was particularly attracted to the subject-matter of Faust. He used Nikolaus Lenau’s “Faust”, a comprehensive poem in 24 scenes, as the model for his orchestral work in two parts “Episodes from Lenau’s Faust”. The second part, “Dance in the Village Inn”, was originally written for piano solo. He gave this wild piece which builds up to an almost delirious climax the title “Mephisto Waltz”. The piano composition soon spread around the world in its own right and even today is considered to be the quintessential bravura piece. For the first time, a version of the piece that was abridged and simplified by Liszt can be found in the appendix. Les mer

  22. Gnossiennes - Erik Satie. Piano

    Gnossiennes - Erik Satie. Piano

    Like the "Gymnopédies", the "Gnossiennes" also allude to ancient Greek traditions. Perhaps inspired by the World Exhibition in Paris in 1889, Satie made use of oriental ornamentation. With his subtle intuition for musical tendencies that were "en vogue", he combined exotic elements with influences from cabaret music and, of course, his own ideas to create something very new. Several of the "Gnossiennes" take one by surprise on account of puzzling fragments of text between the lines of music. According to Satie they were not supposed to be read aloud but to create a secret link between composer and player - a creative challenge, which we are passing on to present-day musicians in our Urtext edition.

    Scenes from Childhood op. 15 (Kinderszenen) Schumann - Piano

    “As far as the Scenes from Childhood are concerned, I owe them one of the liveliest pleasures of my life.” These words were uttered by none other than Franz Liszt. In the evenings he often enjoyed playing part of them, not only for his little daughter Blandine-Rachel but also for his own pleasure. Even today, the “Scenes from Childhood” still raise the question as to whether they were written for children or adults. Schumann himself described them as being the reminiscences of an older person for older people, but did not deny that “several children’s heads were in his mind when composing them”. Ernst Herttrich has revised our well-loved edition, incorporating the latest scholarly findings. In the appendix he also takes a stand on the metronome markings which were taken over from an early print. av ROBERT SCHUMANN Les mer
