With Mozart's piano concerto announced here, the G. Henle Editions are embarking on an ambitious project: the aim is to publish an important number of the 23 concertos over the next four years, in the form of an entirely new Urtext edition. for piano written by the master of Salzburg. And it is András Schiff, renowned pianist, who will take a decisive part in the publication: his reductions for piano are written for the amateur pianist, not for the professional corépétiteur- his fingering of Mozart's solo part respect the most nuances fine, are inspiring for the performer. In the absence of Mozart's original cadences, it is Schiff's, of a very sure style, that are repeated. We thus offer an optimum still unmatched until now. And András Schiff is not alone in vouching for quality - the different Mozart specialists to whom G. Henle has entrusted the edition of Urtext are equally so. Each work in fact is edited by an expert and developed according to editorial guidelines previously defined. Their work is done mainly on the basis of the main source that represents the autograph scores of the composer. In some cases, these partitions were not yet available during the realization of previous editions. We also know today that alongside the autographs of Mozart, the first copies of the parts and editions contain decisive information on the text. Published in cooperation with Breitkopf - Härtel, the Mozart piano concertos in Urtext edition are not only presented in the attractive, low-price form of piano reductions, but together with the corresponding orchestral scores, as well as instrumental parts and study scores. This ensures that this new major edition is used to the fullest, in many ways, especially for the study of Urtext confirmed by the soloist, established according to the current state of musicological research, for the performance of the concerto with a second pianist, playing from a reduction of piano easily decipherable and offering excellent sounds, for the study and reading of the score pocket, and finally for the performance with an orchestra with a material newly developed.
