Henle Verlag Chopin Préludes

Sheet Music Book

Fréderic Chopin’s stay with George Sand on Mallorca in the winter 1838/1839 was ill-fated. Yet Chopin still managed to finish his “Préludes” there which he had begun to compose in Paris. Today’s interpreter not only has to deal with numerous variant readings but also with corrupt performance traditions. The “Préludes” are the first edition to be completed in our comprehensive Chopin revisions; the editor has taken the latest scholarly findings into account and in the musical text brings to light “established” variants as well as others which are to be found in the sources. And there is another first here, too: the printed volume contains a shorter critical report – the extensive version with all the details can be downloaded.

Clear printed text without errors
Mathias Nielsen, 31.01.2018
Definitely recommendable if you desire the collection of Préludes all in one place. It's all printed in very clear text/notes without any errors (having looked/played through the whole book several times). There's a clear difference between this Henle print and the cheaper versions of these scores.
