Beethoven: Symphonie Nr. 9. Finale

Ludwig van Beethoven

9th Symphony. Finale (Choral Symphony)

Ode to Joy. Vocal score compatible with all available music editions

op. 125,4, 1815-1824

Description

It’s about 200 years since Beethoven scribbled down a theme in D minor in his sketch book, which he later used, slightly altered, in the 2nd movement of his 9th Symphony. Beethoven had thought of setting Schiller’s “Ode to Joy” much earlier. As early as 1803 Ferdinand Ries mentioned a complete setting of the text by Beethoven which no longer survives. The vocal score of the finale of the 9th Symphony is based on the vocal score made by Carl Reinecke around the end of the 19th century. The version by Reinecke, popular worldwide, closely reflects the sound of the orchestral writing, yet at the same time is remains playable. Stefan Schuck has revised this historic vocal score, in the process taking into account recent research findings. The new Carus vocal score contains rehearsal letters from all current versions of the orchestral material, and is thus compatible with all available music editions. In the presentation of this edition, particular attention has been paid to the practical needs of (choral) singers and répétiteurs.

This work is now available in carus music, the choir app!

Reviews

Stefan Schuck hat diesen historischen Klavierauszug überarbeitet und dabei auch aktuelle Forschungsergebnisse berücksichtigt.

Toccata 11/12.2015

 

 

... Der auf dem gängigen Material Carl Reineckes beruhende Klavierauszug wurde u. a. an einzelnen Stellen für den Pianisten erleichtert, die Bögen der Vokalstimmen wieder vom Beethovenschen Urtext übernommen. Der Begeisterung asiatischer Sängerinnen und Sänger trägt diese Ausgabe durch den Abdruck des deutschen Textes mit darunter stehender Lautschrift Rechnung.
Musica sacra, September/Oktober 2015

 

... Besonders erfreulich ist, dass die Edition die unterschiedlichen Probebuchstaben der gängigen Editionen anführt, was die „Bedienfreundlichkeit" des Klavierauszugs deutlich erhöht.
