Niels Wilhelm Gade (1817–1890)
Edited by the Foundation for the Publication of the Works of Niels W. Gade,
Niels W. Gade is one of the leading Danish composers of the nineteenth century. However only about half of his prolific œuvre has appeared in print. Given this fact and the growing current interest in Gade, there is an urgent need for a scholarly-critical Urtext edition of his music to meet the demands of both scholars and performers.
This edition will contain all of Gade's completed compositions and separate movements as well as the arrangements he made of his own works and those of other composers. In general, the main text presents the “definitive” version based on Gade's personal copy of the printed work. However, all the remaining sources have also been consulted for purposes of comparison. Every editorial decision is mentioned and justified in the critical report (English).
The complete edition comprises the following seven series:
Series I: Orchestral Works
Series II: Chamber Music
Series III: Works for Piano or Organ
Series IV: Choral Works
Series V: Songs and Ballads
Series VI: Stage Works
Series VII: Arrangements and Supplements
