Ludwig van Beethoven: 32 Sonatas (Facsimile) - Paperbound set
32 Sonatas (Facsimile) - Paperbound set
Ludwig van Beethoven (1770 - 1827)
As only a few of the original autograph manuscripts for these sonatas have survived, these first editions are the earliest known sources for most of the 32 sonatas. They are, in fact, the sources to which most modern editors went to establish their text. But any responsible player would have to consult these facsimiles in order to make his or her own judgments on many hundreds of points of detail. They are in our opinion indispensable for any pianist who wishes to give a historically informed performance, or for any teacher of historical keyboard performance.
They are all extremely clear to read for the performer. The page size is larger than most music nowadays (34cm x 24,4 cm).(ISBN 9780948607417)
