* Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
In late 1791 Mozart wrote his famous work the Concerto for
Orchestra K. 622, known today as his Clarinet Concerto. This work
was first published though
in 1801 for clarinet and by no less than three publishers: Breitkopf
A version for viola in A major was published in 1802 by Offenbach.
Until now the
viola arrangement of this work have has remained a part of the rich
musical history of
the early 19th century.
This arrangement for viola is now available for the first time in a
modern publication edited by
the internationally renowned early music conductor and musicologist
It has been taken over as first published in 1802 and Christopher
Hogwood has himself
arranged a piano reduction with an eye to preserving the practice of
at the time.
The edition for Viola and Piano is fully compatible with the
Bärenreiter Urtext performing
materials of the Clarinet Concerto from the New Mozart Edition.
