Nänie, Op.82

Nänie, Op.82

by Johannes Brahms ; Eusebius Mandyczewski (editor)

Brahms enriched the genre of chorus and orchestra with two impressive works from the early 1880s: In 1881, he set a text to Schiller's Nänie (Op.82, four-part chorus and orchestra) and the next year (1882) he set Goethe's Song of the Fates (Op.89, six-part chorus and orchestra). Brahms composed the piece in 1881, in memory of his deceased friend Anselm Feuerbach. Nänie (Song of Lamentation) is not about simple despair or mere complaint. Even in such dark moments, Schiller's romanticism is expressed as... Read more

Cantata No. 150: Nach dir, Herr, verlanget mich, BWV 150

Cantata No. 150: Nach dir, Herr, verlanget mich, BWV 150

by Johann Sebastian Bach ; Berhard Todt (arranger) ; Paul von Waldersee (editor) ; Karel Torvik (editor)

A newly engraved vocal score carefully edited and revised from Berhard Todt's reduction issued in conjunction with Bach Gesellschaft edition. One of Bach's earliest extant works (dated 1708 or 1709), this cantata was likely influenced by the those of Dietrich Buxtehude. The opening string sinfonia is follwed by a short opening chorus in motet style. After a brief attractive aria (for soprano), another chorus, also in motet style, commences with an ascending scale after which the line is handed off... Read more

Swan Lake: Ballet in Four Acts, Op. 20

by Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky ; Carl Simpson (editor)

Newly edited and engraved study score for the original 1877 version of Tchaikovsky's first ballet masterpiece. Includes Preface, Synopsis, and Cast of Characters. This is the complete orchestral score, not a piano reduction, based upon the composer's autograph, the first edition issued by P. Jurgenson, and the score from Tchaikovsky's complete works. Swan Lake, Tchaikovsky's first venture into ballet, was only moderately successful in its first production at Moscow's Bolshoi Theatre. Choreographer Julius... Read more

Te Deum, Op.22 / H 118

Te Deum, Op.22 / H 118

by Hector Berlioz ; C. A. Barry (arranger)

Completed in 1849, the Te Deum, like the earlier and more famous Grande messe des morts, is one of Berlioz's self-described "architectural" works. While the orchestral forces required for the Te Deum are nowhere near as massive as huge as those for the Requiem, the work does call for an organ which can compete on equal terms with the rest of the orchestra. It lasts approximately fifty minutes and derives its text from the traditional Latin Te Deum, although Berlioz made some changes to word order for... Read more

Schicksalslied, Op.54

Schicksalslied, Op.54

by Johannes Brahms ; Eusebius Mandyczewski (editor)

Brahms started work on his lush setting of Friedrich Hölderlin's poem Hyperions Schicksalslied (Hyperion's Song of Destiny) in 1868 but did not complete it until 1871, being unsatisfied with the ending until he completed his better-known Alto Rhapsody, Op.53. The vocal score offered here is a clean digitally-enhanced reprint of the classic vocal score issued by Breitkopf & Härtel in the early 20th century edited by the eminent musicologist Eusebius Mandyczewski.

Swan Lake Suite, Op. 20a

Swan Lake Suite, Op. 20a

by Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky ; Carl Simpson (editor)

Newly edited and engraved. The composer considered an orchestral suite from his great ballet, but never got around to extracting it. An unknown editor compiled the first version, which was issued by Jurgenson in 1900. The Soviet state publishers produced their own version in 1954, adding 3 dance movements and omitting the finale from the original suite. This new score includes all the movements found in the two different versions of the suite.

Credo, RV 591

Credo, RV 591

by Antonio Vivaldi ; Clayton Westermann (editor)

For the Credo in E minor, Vivaldi borrowed some material he composed for his Magnificat, which places it later - probably after 1727. This completely choral work has much in common stylistically with the very famous Gloria (RV 589) and with his earlier psalm setting In exitu Israel (RV 604). Clayton Westermann's 1970 edition, with an English translation beneath the Latin text, is reissued here in a digitally-enhanced, easy-to-read format.

Symphony No. 8

by Gustav Mahler ; Joseph Woss (arranger)

Mahler's penultimate symphony recieved its premiere performance in Munich on September 12th, 1910 with a chorus of about 850, and an orchestra of 171. These massive forces led to Mahler's agent dubbing the work "Symphony of a Thousand." Mahler did not approve of the title at all, but it remains. The symphony was a great success at its premiere, one of the few of Mahler's works to be well received in his lifetime. It was the last premiere of one his works that Mahler witnessed before his death. Unabridged... Read more

Vivaldi's Magnificat probably dates from shortly after the 1726 death of composer C.P. Grua, which resulted in his having to provide sacred music for the Venetian orphanage and convent he enjoyed a long-standing relation with: the Ospedale della Pietà. There are actually three versions of the work: 1) for single chorus and orchestra (RV 610); 2) for double chorus and two orchestras (RV 610a); and the final version (RV 611), which takes six movements from replaces the other three movements woth solos...

Mass in C, Op.86

by Ludwig van Beethoven ; Carl Reinecke (arranger) ; Karel Torvik (editor)

Commissioned by Price Esterhazy, the patron of his teacher Joseph Haydn, Beethoven's first major choral mass with orchestral accompaniment was generally dismissed as an inferior work by both patron and audience at the first performance in Eisenstadt on 13 September 1807. Later audiences nevertheless came to appreciate Beethoven's masterful contrapuntal writing, which are a precursor to his towering Missa Solemnis composed 15 years later.
