Dear customers, we would like to inform you that due to the current situation concerning the novel corona virus, exit restrictions have been imposed in Austria.

Of course, you are still welcome to use the various contact forms on our website and place orders online in our webshop. We ask for your patience in case we are not able to process your requests at the usual speed - due to legal regulations, companies in Austria are currently only able to operate at reduced capacity. However, we would like to assure you that Universal Edition will continue to look after its customers in times like these. Best regards, your Universal Edition team.
Scored for string orchestra, the Largo und Allegro is very often mentioned in the same breath as his Symphony No. 3 and the Symphonic Variations as the piece which drew wide attention to the young composer and made him foremost among Dutch composers. The work is remarkable for its strongly melodic expressiveness, tightly organised form and its mastery of counterpoint, while tonality is only seldom entirely abandoned, despite the many bitonal and polytonal harmonic elements.
