Now that all the scores, Critical Commentaries and complete performance materials have been
published for Beethoven’s five Piano Concertos, Bärenreiter are now presenting the five study
score editions in a boxed set. The musical text reflects a judicious study of every surviving source,
producing an Urtext edition at the very highest level.
Rounding off the edition are an informative Introduction by Beethoven scholar Barry Cooper on the
genesis of the works and a Foreword by the renowned editor Jonathan Del Mar describing the
sources and the editorial approach.
