Musicians throughout the world are familiar with and treasure our blue Urtext editions – top quality editions of great classical compositions. Urtext and Henle are synonymous. The musician is offered a musical text which solely reflects the composer’s intentions.
The publication of a facsimile of a Mozart autograph score is always a welcome event, especially when the quality is high. This facsimile is a credit to its publishers, Henle – the full-size, high-definition colour reproduction is superb, revealing ink colours and (often highly significant) manuscript blemishes in splendid detail. Looking through this facsimile gives almost as much pleasure as looking at the real thing. … All in all, this volume is a splendid addition to the ever-increasing number of Mozart’s works now available in facsimile form. It is to be hoped that it is not a one-off Henle publication and is followed in due course by high-quality facsimiles of other Mozart piano concertos.
