In late 1821 Beethoven began work on his final piano sonata op. 111 which has been considered a towering masterwork ever since its publication. Thomas Mann gave it a literary monument in his novel “Doctor Faustus” in whose musical-theoretical digressions the main motif of the “Arietta” is set to the syllables “Wiesengrund”, the middle name of Theodor W. Adorno.

Jonathan Del Mar has re-examined the convoluted source material, including the proof sheets and errata lists that accompanied its publication. Supplementing the meticulously edited text is a detailed Critical Commentary, an informative Introduction and valuable notes on performance practice.

“There are many editions of Beethoven's Sonatas on the market at present but this particular one stands out as being especially beneficial and useful to all academic musicians as well as pianists. The complete set will prove to be a real treasure trove where no stone has been left unturned in the quest of historic backgrounds of this great music.”
