Description

3 Work Stages, 2 Versions, 1 Edition

With this edition of the in G Minor Symphony , a vital work group in Mozart's oeuvre is now complete: the three late symphonies K. 543, 550 and 551, now available in Urtext editions. As in his edition of the "Hafner Symphony", Henrik Wiese uncovers in the present "Breitkopf Urtext" score three different stages in the genesis of the G Minor Symphony. Mozart initially wrote the work without clarinets (1st stage), and then he added the clarinets (2nd stage). Not until a final stage did he change the wind instrumentation in the Andante (3rd stage). Mozart thus returned to the 1st version again after completing the 2nd version (with clarinets). This advances the importance of the 1st version without clarinets as "Fassung letzter Hand." A compelling insight which sheds new light on the famous G Minor Symphony. Both versions are of equal value and can now be compared with one another, studied and, above all, performed for the first time ever thanks to the score and parts.
