My first encounter with Bärenreiter was through their pocket editions, a vital resource during my early years as a conductor. Their Urtext editions have been a constant presence throughout my career and one of the most impactful experiences with this publisher was recording the complete Beethoven piano concertos with the Freiburger Barockorchester and Kristian Bezuidenhout. Bärenreiter ensures that one is connected with the essence, origin, and intention of the composer, consistently guaranteeing quality and authenticity.
