Beethoven’s Romances for violin and orchestra op. 40 and op. 50 are rewarding solo pieces that demand sovereign technique and artistic sensitivity. Their simple structures with noble melodies and virtuoso embellishments made them popular concert pieces already during Beethoven’s lifetime. In addition to a piano reduction for practical performance, G. Henle here presents a study score. It follows the musical text of the Beethoven Complete Edition and accords with the orchestral material from Breitkopf & Härtel. In his detailed preface, Ernst Herttrich informs us about the genesis and the source situation of the two works.
