The autograph of a composition always makes fascinating reading – and this is particularly true of Schubert’s Trio in E flat major op. 100, as it underwent many changes during its composition. The manuscript, parts of which were greatly revised, bears eloquent witness to this and offers an opportunity to trace the intricacies of Schubert’s phrasing and articulation. This source is in a private collection and our facsimile makes it accessible to the public for the very first time. It is, of course, in proven Henle quality, in lavish four-colour printing and with an extensive introductory text with in-depth information about the work. In a letter to his publisher in 1828, Schubert explicitly dedicated the work to “no one, save those who find pleasure in it”.
