Debussy, ClaudeWorks for Violin and PianoEdition no.BA 9444ISMN 9790006559862Editor Woodfull-Harris, DouglasLanguage(s) of text English, French, GermanClaude Debussy had difficulties finishing his last major work, the Sonata for Violin and Piano. This can be seen in the many drafts which have been handed down and the fact that the cycle for which it was conceived was left unfinished. The melancholy work originated under the impact of the First World War.The first edition, published during the final year of Debussy’s life, contains many rhythmic errors. The non-autograph metronome marks and the discrepancies between the separate violin part and the violin part in small print in the piano score are two problems that have affected the work’s later reception. Both are examined here in a fresh light.In addition to the Sonata, this edition contains arrangements of La fille aux cheveux de lin, Il pleure dans mon coeur and Minstrels by the American violinist Arthur Hartmann. It was Hartmann who inspired Debussy to make his own arrangement of the well-known piano piece Minstrels, also included in our edition.- Debussy’s complete works for violin and piano- With arrangements by Debussy’s acquaintance Hartmann- Informative Foreword (Eng/Fr/Ger)- Critical Commentary (Eng)

Following the recent publication of the full score and performance material to Debussy’s ´´La Mer” (BA 7880), Bärenreiter now presents the study score edition of this ´´impressionistic” masterpiece.The new scholarly-critical edition draws on several important sources previously unavailable to musicologists, resulting in an array of new readings and corrections. In addition, there are many changes, especially in terms of articulation and dynamics.This new edition includes the famous ´´fanfare” in Movement III, clearly marked in small print and brackets. This fanfare was excised in the 1910 reissue of the work, but was reinstated by a number of great conductors who knew Debussy, i.e. Monteux, Münch, Mitropoulos and Ansermet. They felt that the excision was a misunderstanding and that the fanfare was necessary for the structure of the movement. And so, the Bärenreiter edition presents the revival of a performing tradition which is committed to the fanfare.- New Urtext edition with numerous corrections in comparison to other editions- Important sources which were previously inaccessible have been taken into accountEdition no.: TP 780ISMN: 9790006205455Editor: Woodfull-Harris, DouglasLanguage(s) of text: French, English, GermanProduct format: Study score, Urtext editionBinding: PaperbackPages / Format: XXVIII, 158 S. - 22,5 x 16,5 cm
