In Cooperation with G. Henle Verlag The Mozart expert Henrik Wiese edits the central work genre of Viennese classicism according to the current status of international Mozart research. The clean autograph of the Horn Concerto in Eb major K. 447 offers a reliable basis for the present Urtext edition which deliberately abstains from leveling out certain fine points and smaller divergences made by Mozart at parallel and repeated passages.

In the edition for horn and piano the two solo parts contain two cadenza suggestions for the first movement as well as lead-ins (also alternative) for measures 22 and 196 in the third movement. The distinguished Mozart specialist Robert D. Levin offers a variety of multiply interrelated motivic and melodic sections from which every horn player can put together his own cadenza. junge Tell (S) - Marie seine Schwester (S) - Melchtal (Bar) - Melchtals Sohn (T) - Gessler (Bar) - 2 Manner aus dem Volk Ein Soldat (BBB) - Der Reisende (T) - Die Frau des Reisenden / Die beiden kleinen Kinder des Reisenden / Surlemann / Ein alter Mann / 2 Offiziere / 2 Soldaten (Sprechrollen)

Mit dem Todesjahr 1813 gehort Gretry ebenso zu den Jahrhundertjubilaren wie Wagner und Verdi in deren Schatten er naturlich steht. Und doch gibt es einen deutlichen Akzent zu seiner Wiederentdeckung. Das Opernhaus seiner Geburtsstadt Luttich stellt Guillaume Tell zur Diskussion. Die Oper wurde 1791 also wahrend der Franzosischen Revolution in Paris ausserst erfolgreich aufgefuhrt. Der Schweizer Freiheitsheld war dort also fast 15 Jahre vor Schillers Schauspiel schon ein Thema. Einzelne Arien aus Gretrys Oper uberdauerten dann sogar den Erfolg von Rossinis gleichnamigem Werk 1829. Nun steht in Luttich Gretrys ganzer Tell nach allzu langer Zeit auf einem mit Sicherheit viel beachteten Prufstand.

Gretry's death in 1813 thrusts him into the midst of the bicentennial birthday celebrations of Wagner and Verdi whose shadow he cannot escape. Yet there is a clear trend favoring a reevaluation of this composer. The opera house of his native Liege for example is presenting Guillaume Tell for public enjoyment and discussion. The opera was greeted with exceptional enthusiasm in Paris in 1791 during the French Revolution. The Swiss freedom fighter was already a well-known character there nearly 15 years before Schiller's drama. A number of arias from Gretry's opera even survived the success of Rossini's work of the same name of 1829. Now Gretry's entire Tell faces opera lovers' long-overdue scrutiny.
