For my musical work, it is invaluable to be able to work with good music editions!
As a violinist, I have to say that the Mozart editions by Bärenreiter are, for me, an absolute must! When I came to Austria at the age of eleven, my professor gave me the Bärenreiter edition of Mozart’s 5th Violin Concerto as a present. For me, this opened up a completely new perspective, since Mozart’s bowings and details he provided in the music had not been changed by the editor as in editions I had previously known. This enabled me, for the first time, to understand the composer’s intention and to interpret the concerto in his spirit.
A good half of my sheet music collection consists of Bärenreiter editions I am deeply enthusiastic about the fine, competent, and trustworthy work of the publisher! I recommend Bärenreiter editions not only because of their musicological quality, but also because of the excellent quality of their paper, which guarantees good usability and a long life.
A big thank you and congratulations to Bärenreiter on its centenary! May another hundred successful years follow in the service of music!
