In 1818 Beethoven worked on one of his most monumental piano sonatas, the Hammerklavier Sonata Op.106. 200 years later, Wiener Urtext Edition publishes a newly revised edition of this exceptional work. The problematic source material has been commented on in the preface as well as in the critical notes.

This edition also contains a contribution by Johann Sonnnleitner who sheds light on Beethoven’s problematic metronome markings.


Die Wiener Urtext-Edition hat das monumentale Werk (...) als mustergültige Einzelausgabe herausgebracht.
Schweizer Musikzeitung Nr. 12, 2018 (Karl-Andreas Kolly)

Die neue Einzelausgabe der Wiener Urtext Edition bietet allen etwas und reflektiert dabei den neuesten Stand der Forschung. Dr. Jochen Reutter hat sich dabei die alte, von Peter Hauschild herausgegebene Edition noch einmal vorgenommen und sie einer gründlichen Revision unterzogen. (...)
Das Notenbild wirkt übersichtlich und einladend. Die auf den österreichischen Meisterpianisten Alexander Jenner zurückgehenden Fingersätze zeugen von langer Spielerfahrung, wovon man als Pianist nur profitieren kann.
