I am thrilled to be invited to be an ambassador for the Bärenreiter Jubilee. Ever since my student days, Bärenreiter has been my go-to publisher for all baroque and classical music.
I have had the good fortune to conduct many Handel operas and the scholarship that goes in to the Bärenreiter editions is second to none. This level of scholarship allows us musicians to perform with authority and confidence, knowing that the editor has had access to all of the source material and has come to practical and informed decisions.
I mention Handel, but equally with the Bach family, Haydn and Mozart and so many more, I have rejoiced in Bärenreiter’s quality, as the best publishing house for the repertoire that I perform. Thank you!
