I have always lived with Bärenreiter editions, ever since I was a student. It was so exciting, when studying in Milano at the Conservatorio Giuseppe Verdi, to explore a music shop and find Mozart symphonies and concertos in the pocket score format. I really feel I am part of the Bärenreiter Generation, as I love to call the musicians of my age who grew up working only with critical editions.
My last great experience with Bärenreiter was with Rossini’s “Le Comte Ory” at the Lyric Opera of Chicago. A beautiful, new, clear edition for this work which has been so often neglected.
I’m so proud of our performances, and this is facilitated by the first-class orchestral material and vocal scores!
