Description

Franz Schubert's Impromptus Op. 90 (D 899) are among the most frequently played piano works by Franz Schubert and have become well-established in music lessons and in the concert repertoire. The Vienna Urtext Edition now presents a new edition which is based on the latest research and performance practice. In this edition, numerous details have been added to the text, and fundamental problems like the distinction between accents and crescendo hairpins or the adjustment of dotted rhythms to triplets are solved in a new and undogmatic way, closely following Schubert's original manuscript. Also new are the notes on interpretation by Robert D. Levin which look into even the most subtle shades of meaning of expression markings. Score image and page layout have been designed in a user-friendly way.


• The ‚Highlights' from Schubert's Impromptus
• Urtext based on all relevant sources
• Solution of editorial issues faithful to Schubert's notational style
• Notes on interpretation by Robert D. Levin for a deeper understanding of Schubert's musical text

Reviews

Chez Wiener Urtext, c'est Robert Levin qui s'est chargé des notes sur l'interprétation (…) des quatre "Impromptus opus 90 D. 899" de Schubert (s'ajoutant aux indications de Paul Badura-Skoda). Comme toujours, chez cet éditeur, on tirera grand profit à lire consciencieusement les remarques concernant l'articulation, la dynamique, l'usage de la pédale, les ornementations, etc. Pianiste Nr. 96, Jänner/Feber 2016, S. 20 (Stéphane Friédérich)

L'éditeur viennois publie les "Impromptus op. 90" (…) de Schubert dans l'édition d'Ulrich Leisinger, réalisée à partir des sources manuscrites les plus pertinentes (avec remise en contexte historique et indications de variantes), le tout doigté par Paul Badura-Skoda. La lettre du musicien, Nr. 469, Oktober 2015, S. 39 (Frédéric Gaussin)
