Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Piano Sonatas, Volume I

Books | Piano

Catalogue No: HN1001
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Published in a two-volume edition (HN1 and HN2), Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's 18 Piano Sonatas were the very first pieces in the Henle catalogue.

These popular sonatas remain part of the core repertory of every pianist. In the intervening decades since the release of the original Urtext edition, both volumes have been revised several times in order to keep pace with the current state of research.

The latest update, concerning K. 331, the “Alla turca” sonata from volume 2, dates from 2015. The editor’s preface and critical report provide detailed information on all the sources and textual issues. HN1 and HN2 include fingerings; here Henle presents both volumes without fingerings, for pianists who want to find their own way into Mozart’s Piano universe.

      Excellent edition. Clear printing. Pages stay open (don't snap shut because of the binding). No editor's fingering.
      Would have liked more discussion on interpretation. Best practice in Mozart ornamentation seems to have changed since I learnt the piano.
