Robert Schumann once said that “when a German speaks of symphonies, he is speaking of Beethoven”. With his nine symphonies, Beethoven set a standard against which all subsequent composers measured themselves. Yet Beethoven initially oriented himself on the great masters Haydn and Mozart. Thus his Second Symphony in D major op. 36 of 1800–02 stands between the tradition of these masters and his own later innovations. For study purposes, G. Henle here presents the Second Symphony in a small format score. It follows the musical text of the Beethoven Complete Edition. The specialist press wrote: “Quite apart from the critical merits of this edition ... it is a pleasure to read these study scores owing to the brilliant typography and the generous, yet clearly laid-out format”.
