The entire corpus of Beethoven’s piano sonatas is contained in this two volume work – 32 sonatas in all. Volume One contains the fifteen sonatas from Beethoven’s first period, including the Pathetique, Moonlight and Pastorale Sonatas. The music is reproduced from the exemplary Universal-Edition set edited by Heinrich Schenker. Combining scrupulous scholarship and profound artistic vision, Schenker achieved an edition which is universally admired by musicians and scholars. For this Dover edition, Schenker’s footnotes have been translated into English and his preface retranslated. A new introduction introduction by Carl Schachter has also been included. This edition will be welcomed by all pianists, both professional and amateur, for its accuracy and reliability; it is highly desirable for instruction, study, reference and enjoyment.

        It may be true that some Dover scores are not that clear and that the printing is a little old fashioned. Whilst this is true with this edition (ed. Schenker), the printing is actually very clear, there is not too much finguring and Schenker often makes very sensible suggestions, so I would very much recommend this version of the piano sonatas.
