Written Early, Orchestrated Late The cycle was put together in 1928, more than 20 years after the composition of the individual songs. From the large amount of songs for voice and piano that he had written in his early years, Alban Berg selected seven of them which he then orchestrated. After serious consideration, he laid down a definitive sequence in which the tempo constantly alternates while the orchestral instruments symmetrically recede before picking up again. Once the piano and orchestral editions were printed, the Seven Early Songs quickly conquered concert halls in both scorings. They are still at home on the concert stages of the world today - which is reason enough to present this work by Alban Berg in an Urtext edition following the Violin Concerto. The orchestral material can now be purchased for the first time. True to the proven system of Breitkopf Padagogik the music edition contains the conducting score while the part material is found on the enclosed CD-ROM.

But there's more to the didactic value of SymphoniClass since the book not only features pieces to play in an ensemble; it also provides in each arrangement special reference points concerning the teaching curricula that forms the backbone of general music teaching. The authors' didactic comments (in German and English!) approach this topic with great care.

Die Studien-Editionen (Studienpartituren) verbleiben beim G. Henle Verlag und sind dort erhaltlich.

Mit dem Erscheinen von Partitur und Stimmen des D-dur-Hornkonzerts KV 412/514 setzt der Mozart-Experte Henrik Wiese die 2013 begonnene Orchesteredition dieser wichtigen Werkgruppe fort. Was in der Alten Mozart-Ausgabe 1881 erstmals als Mozarts 1. Hornkonzert herausgegeben wurde entpuppte sich im Lauf der Zeit als Pasticcio: wahrend der Kopfsatz unzweifelhaft von Mozart stammt ist die Ausarbeitung des Rondos Sussmayr zuzuschreiben. Dieser Satz ist lediglich als Entwurf in Mozarts Handschrift uberliefert. Die vorliegende Ausgabe enthalt nun sowohl das Sussmayr-Rondo (KV 514 = SmWV 502) als auch das von Wiese behutsam erganzt Mozartsche Rondo-Fragment (KV 412). Damit wird dem Interpreten in einer praktischen Ausgabe die Wahl zwischen der traditionellen Fassung (mit Sussmayr) und der von Mozart wahrscheinlich intendierten Fassung angeboten.
