Breitkopf Study Scores
Great works in a small format, handy, well-founded and economical: The “Breitkopf Study Scores” keep growing. The Urtext editions are carefully transposed to the smaller format of the study scores.
With the publication of the study scores in the blue “angel-cover,” the newest findings of our “Breitkopf Urtext” editions are no longer limited to orchestral performers – “heavenly prospects” for all music lovers who want to enjoy their favorite works in a faultless musical text. The same is true for the study scores in the Breitkopf frame as they offer chamber music works as a score. The preface provides the most important facts about the genesis and transmission of the work in compact form.
Important work groups of the “Breitkopf Study Scores:”
- Beethoven: Complete Symphonies – Breitkopf Urtext; Ed. Clive Brown, Peter Hauschild
- Brahms: Orchestral Works – Urtext of the “Ausgabe der Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde”, Vienna
- Mendelssohn: Orchestral Works – Urtext of the “Leipzig Edition of the Works of Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy”
- Mozart: Selected Solo Concertos – Urtext in cooperation with G. Henle Verlag
- Schumann: Complete Symphonies and Solo Concertos – Breitkopf Urtext
- Sibelius: Orchestral Works – Urtext of the Complete Edition „Jean Sibelius Works”
Many times Breitkopf offers the very first study score of a work, in this case the Urtext version. Two examples are Carl Reinecke’s Flute Concerto and Robert Schumann’s long undervalued Violin Concerto.
