About Urtext Editions

Urtext editions are types of sheet music created to reflect the composer’s original intentions. The term “urtext” means original text. Because many pieces of classical music have been heavily edited, the goal of Urtext sheet music is to return to the composer’s authentic notation. Urtext editions are prepared with the utmost care in musicological research and editing. Browse Urtext editions of Bach, Beethoven, Mozart and more from G. Henle Verlag, Baerenreiter Verlag, Edition Peters, and Vienna Urtext.
