About This Item

This edition includes two solo sonatas with basso continuo parts and piano scores; the sonatas are from Telemann’s famous Essercizii musici, a collection of 24 sonatas including 12 solo sonatas and 12 trio sonatas. These sonatas were heavily influenced by Corelli’s Sonata da Chiesa and have four movements: slow-fast-slow-fast. Long thought to have stemmed from the late 1730s, the Essercizii musici are now believed to have been published by the composer in 1729. The primary sources are the three part-books from the original edition of 1729.

This first ever Urtext edition, edited by the Bach and Telemann scholar Klaus Hofmann, is taken from the Telemann Musical Works. The continuo realizations are by the editor.

- First ever Urtext editions of these sonatas
- Charming works of easy to moderate technical difficulty
- Straightforward, clear continuo realizations

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).”
