Mozart´s master concertos innew editions
The new editions of Mozart´s Concertos K. 216 and K. 218 have been widely commented upon and critically praised. The next step was to bring out the A-major Violin Concerto K. 219 in the same exemplary form. Breitkopf has once again brought together three high-caliber specialists for this edition: Mozart expert Cliff Eisen as editor, internationally renowned concertmaster AndrewManze as the author of the stylistically authentic and brilliantly virtuoso cadenzas, and Werner Breig as the creator of the transparent piano reduction that wonderfully suits every accompanist´s fingers. The new edition is based on Cliff Eisen´s thorough and masterful source evaluation. His decisions always do justice to the requirements of historical performance practice and occasionally yield some rather extraordinary results.
