Newsletter Dezember 2016

Dear readers,

What a story! Mozart makes a vow to compose a mass after the successful birth of
his first-born child. The performance is planned on the occasion of his first journey
with his wife to Salzburg so he can introduce her to his family ? both personally and
musically. But the baby, left behind with a wet-nurse in Vienna, then dies, and Mozart stops work on the composition ? precisely at the Et incarnatus est , one of the most beautiful and heartfelt movements by Mozart, dealing with the subject of the incarnation, that is, birth. Too much of a coincidence? Probably. 

Now Frieder Bernius and Uwe Wolf have published a new edition of the Mozart C Minor Mass which attempts to produce a performing version whilst maintaining the greatest respect for the available material, and without obscuring Mozart's musical manuscript with their own contributions. A first recording of this version, with the Kammerchor Stuttgart and the Barockorchester Stuttgart conducted by Frieder Bernius, is also available.

With best wishes, Carus-Verlag

Puccini

NEW EDITION

Puccini: Messa di Gloria

 


A scholarly-critical edition of Puccini's only mass, based on the Urtext of the "Edizione Nationale delle Opere di Giacomo Puccini". An examination of the autograph score has led to numerous corrections being made in the "Edizione Nationale" compared with the old-established music text of this work. As well as this, Puccini's orchestral amendments in the Benedictus and his new arrangement of the tenor aria "Gratias agimus" from the Gloria , both dating from 1893, have been taken into consideration.

To assist customers, the newly-published practical performing edition and complete performance material from the "Edizione Nationale" is listed under the number 56.001/01. The orchestral parts have been matched to the Urtext of the "Edizione Nationale", enabling some mistakes to be corrected. Material previously listed under the number 40.645 is now listed under 56.001. Individual orchestral parts from the old material can still be supplied on request to supplement sets. The vocal parts are not affected by the alterations; old and new vocal scores are compatible.

NEW CHORAL ISSUES

Michael Praetorius: Choral concerti

The collection Polyhymnia Caduceatrix & Panegyrica of 1619 is rightly regarded as the high point in Michael Praetorius's output. In the choral concerti the highly modern, Italian style and the Protestant chorale combine and form a symbiosis which showed the way forward for the history of German music. The concerti are available in separate editions
