Description

On 13 June 1830 Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy finished his Rondo capriccioso. After the Leipzig publishers Hofmeister and Breitkopf & Härtel had refused to publish the work - probably because of the seemingly excessive fee demanded by the composer -, the work eventually was published by Mechetti in Vienna and J. B. Cramer, Addison & Beale in London almost at the same time. Originally intended as a study, Mendelssohn revised the piece and added an andante introduction, thus managing to create one of his most outstanding piano works which has maintained an unfailing popularity until today. The new edition of the Vienna Urtext Edition is based on all extant sources, with the first edition from London being of particular significance.

Reviews

(…) Ursprünglich als Etüde konzipiert, gelang Mendelssohn durch Umarbeitung der Vorlage und Hinzufügung einer Andante-Einleitung ein echtes Meisterwerk, das bis auf den heutigen Tag zum festen Repertoire eines jeden Pianisten gehört. Der Neuausgabe der Wiener Urtext Edition liegen sämtliche erhaltenen Quellen zugrunde, von denen der Londoner Erstausgabe ein besonderes Gewicht zukommt. Sensationelle Überraschungen haben sich daraus nicht ergeben, aber eine schönere Ausgabe finden Sie so schnell nicht. Piano News 5/2012
