DescriptionBased on the requirements of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, Scale Shapes is an invaluable aid for grade exams and general progress, which uses a new diagram-based way to learn piano scales using the Stocken Method. The unique Keyboard Diagrams provide a system which allows the student to concentrate exclusively on the physical shapes of the technical exercise and in consequence, to focus on the acquisition of ´good legato, even fingers, firm tone and a musical curve´. This method is not designed to be a substitute for the acquisition of the ability to read staff notation, but the complications of staff notation are no longer linked to the physical complications of a given scale with this method.

The three popular sonatas op. 10 were written between the end of 1795 and the beginning of 1798, only shortly after Beethoven had completed his first fully-fledged sonatas op. 2. In the press they were announced as „3 very nice piano sonatas´´ of a composer whose name would sufficiently guarantee „for the quality of his work to the audience.´´ The three technically and musically demanding works, which reach their peak with the third sonata and its highly expressive ´´Largo e mesto”, have their firm place in advanced piano teaching.The musicologist Jonathan Del Mar, intimate connoisseur of Beethoven’s music, evaluates all sources and editions published during Beethoven’s lifetime for the present scholarly-critical Urtext edition. Particularly enlightening is the chapter on period performance practice which sheds light on certain issues of Beethoven’s instruments and their range, the usage of the pedals, tempo, dynamics, articulation and ornaments. The Introduction offers information on the work and its genesis. The detailed Critical Commentary accounts for sources, readings and editorial emendations. In this edition great care has been given to a user-friendly layout which on the one hand reflects the flow and tempo of the music and on the other hand facilitates the study of this complex music by means of a transparent and clear appearance on the page as well as good page turns.• Urtext performance edition at the cutting edge of scholarship• Optimal page turns• Informative Introduction• Valuable suggestions on period performance practice (Eng/Ger)• Detailed Critical Commentary (Eng)
Claude DebussyLa plus que lente - ValseEditeur: Ernst-Günter HeinemannDoigtés: Hans-Martin TheopoldAu début du XXe siècle, les valses lentes étaient particulièrement appréciées dans les salons parisiens – à la suite de quoi Debussy, non sans une légère malice, présenta sa valse pour piano «La plus lente que lente». À la suite de la parution de la première édition de cette danse en juillet 1910, l’éditeur parisien Durand fit paraître la même année encore dans le Figaro un tiré à part ainsi que des arrangements (anonymes) pour violon et piano et piano à quatre mains. En outre, Debussy réalisa ensuite lui-même une version orchestrale de la pièce et l’enregistra en 1913, dans un tempo particulièrement vif, sur un rouleau de la firme Welte-Mignon. Cette pièce accompagnée de la mention «molto rubato con morbidezza» est désormais disponible en édition séparée Henle-Urtext; une introduction augmentée par rapport à celle des recueils HN 1194 et 404 renouvelle l’intérêt pour cette charmante valse-miniature.
