At the first performances of this sonata, composed between 1920 and 1922, even close friends of the composer were perturbed: Following the intoxicating sounds of La Valse, the smaller scoring and modern musical language of the sonata were a shock. Yet this pioneering work has now become a permanent fixture on the concert stage. To help the players, we are now presenting two performance scores in which the other instrument’s part is also given. Both parts are included in a marked and an unmarked version. The world-renowned musicians Christian Poltéra and Frank Peter Zimmermann provided the fingerings.
L'edizioni Henle colma finalmente una lacuna editoriale non solo in quanto propone le indicazioni di arcate e diteggiature di due concertisti oggi celebri quali Frank Peter Zimmermann e Christian Poltéra ma anche per quanto riguarda le note introduttive di Ulrich Krämer che inquadrano esaurientemente il brano nel suo contesto storico e stilistico.
