About the Authors

Norbert Müllemann (Editor)

Dr. Norbert Müllemann, born in 1976 in Cologne, studied musicology, German philology and philosophy at the University of Cologne whilst at the same time studying the piano at the Music Conservatory in Cologne.

In 2004 he began working at G. Henle Publishers as an intern. In 2005 he became a junior editor, whilst at the same time starting his doctorate at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich. He completed it in 2008 with a thesis entitled “Handschriften Frédéric Chopins bis 1830. Studien zur Authentizität, Datierung und Werkgenese”. Since 2008 Müllemann has been an editor at the publishing house, becoming editor-in-chief in 2017. He has edited numerous Urtext editions for the publisher with a particular focus on the works of Frédéric Chopin.


Marc-André Hamelin (Fingering)

Henle's 19-page edition is based upon this last authorised version. Busoni's fingering is marked in italics, while Marc-André Hamelin's unobtrusive suggestions are also included. An interesting, two-page preface outlining the history of the work, a critical commentary and comments on the piano roll of Busoni's performance of the piece complete an excellent package.

Pianist, 2016

(...) this urtext is his final (1916) word on the piece.

Music teacher Magazine, 2015

Seine Chaconne hat Busoni mehrmals umgearbeitet und auch auf einer Klavierrolle eingespielt. Alle daraus resultierenden Einsichten hat der G. Henle Verlag nun in einer mustergültigen Neuausgabe vereint, zusammen mit kongenialen Fingersätzen des kanadischen Virtuosen Marc-André Hamelin.

Schweizer Musikzeitung, 2015

Of hieruit een ware Urtext voortkomt zal discutabel blijven, maar absoluut duidelijk is dat deze uitgave van Busoni's bewerking thans met afstand de grondigst onderzochte is.
