Complete Editions and Editions of Selected Works

The scholarly-critical Complete Editions of the works of leading composers form a central part of the Bärenreiter publishing programme. These pioneering publications have brought Bärenreiter international acclaim.

From the very beginning, Bärenreiter’s new  Complete Editions have been designed to serve scholars and performers alike whilst reflecting the latest in musicological research. To ensure that each composition is published in keeping with scholarly-critical methods in a form as close as possible to the composer’s original intentions, the editorial work is conducted by highly qualified and internationally renowned musicologists who work for the most part at institutes specially founded for the research and publication of these works. This high editorial standard is complemented by a well-presented layout, excellent printing as well as high quality paper.

Today more than 600,000 Bärenreiter Complete Editions volumes are to be found in musicological institutes and libraries all over the world.
