Following the newly engraved publications of Schubert’s “Moments Musicaux” (BA 9647) and “Impromptus” (BA 9648), the composer’s late Piano works are now published in a scholarly-critical Urtext edition that will meet the demands of today’s performers. Schubert’s popular “Ungarische Melodie” D 817, inspired by gypsy melodies, was composed in 1824; his “Allegretto in C minor” D 915 was written in the spring of 1827; a little later, at the latest in 1828, he also wrote his “Drei Klavierstücke” D 946, which are closely related in form to his “Moments Musicaux”.
Suggestions on performance practice, optimum page turns and fingering which takes into consideration essential aspects of performance practice of Schubert’s time as well as the performance on modern concert Pianos are all included in this edition.
- Based on the Urtext of the “New Schubert Edition”
