About This Item

In the classical era, and far into the 19th century, piano trios were what we might call “fashion accessories”. It is thus no coincidence that Beethoven, following in the footsteps of Haydn and Mozart, took up this genre and created altogether 13 piano trios of his own.
 
This second volume contains the two Piano Trios op. 70 and the Trio op. 97, as well as the Variations on the song “Ich bin der Schneider Kakadu” op. 121a. The nickname “Geistertrio” (Ghost Trio) of the Trio op. 70 no. 1 stems, as usual, not from Beethoven but was given to the piece no doubt because of the spooky, mysterious sound of the slow movement.
 
The Archduke Trio op. 97 was named after its dedicatee Archduke Rudolph and is undisputedly Beethoven’s most important composition of this kind. With a duration of over 45 minutes, it is also his longest piano trio. Though written in 1810/11, it was not published until 1816.

What does Urtext mean? What makes this edition different than the others?

SHAR Answer:

Urtext basically means that this music is the earliest version of this piece of music, to which later versions can be compared. It serves as a baseline; it gives musicians and scholars an idea for the composer’s original intent. The reason that one would purchase an Urtext edition of music would be so that he or she has a musical text which solely reflects the composer’s intentions; creative interpretation can then be built upon those intentions. While it’s useful to purchase an Urtext edition so that one may get a feel for a composer’s intentions, it’s no guarantee of the composer’s exact writings. When a piece of music is edited or altered, it’s common for editors to add or subtract to the music as well as to edit performance methods. In many cases, it can be useful to purchase a thoroughly edited and altered version of a piece of music, because perhaps it will contain fingerings, bowings or musical performance ideas that will be useful to the performer or student who’s using it. Editions that are edited or arranged may also contain a different cadenza for a concerto. When deciding which edition to buy, it really does come down to personal preference. It’s also worth noting that there’s more than one publisher of the Urtext version of music. Some well-known publishers of Urtext versions include Henle, Bärenreiter and Breitkopf, among others. This comes from the G. Henle Verlag Publisher’s website: “There is no such thing as the one valid Urtext version of a musical composition, because the Urtext edition is not the same as a composer's manuscript. (Unfortunately even today many musicians believe this to be the case, for the word "Urtext" [original text] probably also supports this idea.) In most cases the Urtext editor has to choose between different readings in the primary sources: What is "correct", what is "wrong"? Often there is no clear answer. At all events, a good Urtext edition justifies the decision made (and printed).”
