Description

For more than 200 years Mozart's piano sonatas have been part of every pianist's repertoire. Research done over the last few decades has made it possible, however, to establish more accurate dating and ordering of these works. Expert examination of the sources has shown that many printed editions from the 18th Century give more reliable detail than Mozart's autograph manuscripts; many of these works were prepared for publication by the composer himself and marked with precise indications for performance with regard to ornamentation, dynamics and articulation. All this, together with the rediscovery of sources that only became accessible again at the end of the 20th Century, gives reason enough to justify the publication of a new Wiener Urtext edition of Mozart's Piano Sonatas. Volume 1 contains the Sonatas K 279 to K 311, volume 2 the Sonatas K 330 to K 576. For Sonata K 284, variation XI in the final movement is given both in the version that appears in Mozart's autograph manuscript and in the version used in the first edition; in order to make the music easier to read, both versions are given in normal print size. Music that is clear and well laid out, with page turns in convenient places, makes this edition extremely user-friendly. Advice on performance by the renowned Mozart specialist Robert D. Levin provides fresh stimulus for what can otherwise too often become a rather tired interpretation.

Reviews

(...) High time for a new edition – especially if it offers, in addition to current information on performance practice and a critical and exact musical text (that manages to eliminate errors which were continued since the first publications in print), a clear, and easily legible musical score and convenient page turns. Piano News 01/2004

(...) The present text aims for a rendering of the original that is as authentic as possible, with all the individual aspects of Mozart’s style of writing: (...) The preface is very informative, and a careful reading of the notes on interpretation by Robert D. Levin will be essential. (...) Schweizer Musikzeitung, 02/2005

(...) This edition with its interesting mix of practical Urtext edition and an apparatus of critical remarks well worth reading should prove to be the best one available for professional pianists and amateurs of music alike. (...) Piano News 04/2004
