For connoisseurs of Beethoven’s chamber music, G. Henle Publishers offer a special package: all of Beethoven’s string quartets in paperback study editions as a seven-volume boxed set. Renowned editors such as Ernst Herttrich, Rainer Cadenbach and Emil Platen provide diligently edited Urtext editions.
The specialist press is full of praise: “Overall, it has to be said that all the revisions of the present study editions of Beethoven’s String Quartets meet the high standards of objective, competent textual criticism, and that the practising musician is thereby given a musical text whose textual, critical problems may lead to an intensive engagement with Beethoven’s compositions”.
These editions, based on the Beethoven Complete Edition, take into account the complex source situation of the quartets. Detailed accompanying texts round off this splendid edition.
