We present at our stand the most recent publications of the Wiener Urtext Edition. The original focus on keyboard music has broadened in the course of time to include literature for winds and strings In addition to finding new material to incorporate into its program, the Wiener Urtext Edition accords high priority to the educational idea of introducing young musicians to authentic music-making.
Our Highlight in 2017 is the worldwide first Urtext Edition of Béla Bartók’s Mikrokosmos. One can hardly overestimate the pedagogical and historical importance of this work first published in 1940. With its total of 153 pieces the work is not only an impressive collection of progressive piano pieces (thus its subtitle), but, as a compendium that has remained unique in its kind, also forms a comprehensive introduction to the music of the first half of the 20th century, both in terms of compositional technique and style – from the very first piano lessons right up to concert repertoire.
