Although the sources to Beethoven’s piano concerto op. 19 are generally known, many misconceptions and misinterpretations are put right in this Bärenreiter Urtext edition. Up till now, no edition was based exclusively on the authentic sources. Previous publications tended to rely on earlier editions, such as the old Beethoven Complete Edition which in turn also did not take exclusively authentic sources into account.
Jonathan Del Mar’s scholarly-critical edition corrects misreadings of Beethoven’s autograph which were already present in the first edition and had subsequently been incorporated into other editions of this work.
• First Urtext edition based on the authentic sources
• Numerous corrections in the orchestral parts
