Vocal Score, Urtext edition
Drawing on the definitive scholarly-critical edition by Hendrik Schulze et al., the renowned conductor, harpsichordist and organist Jörg Halubek has joined forces with students from the State University of Music and Performing Arts Stuttgart to present a historically informed piano reduction of Claudio Monteverdi’s exciting final opera, “L’incoronazione di Poppea”.

The vocal score contains all the appendices found in the full score and includes an uncluttered piano reduction that lies well on the instrument. Rounding off the edition is a detailed musicological Foreword (Ger/Eng) by Emily Hagen providing information on the work’s genesis, the history of its performance and reception. In addition there is a Foreword on performance practice by early music specialist Jörg Halubek.

Press reviews
„Alles in allem ist diese Edition eine höchst erfreuliche, die auf jeden Fall für mehrere Jahre prägend sein wird. Sie bringt akribische wissenschaftliche Editionstheorie mit praktischer Aufführbarkeit zusammen. … Jeder Mensch, der sich mit den Opern Monteverdis beschäftigt, sollte diese Partitur neben den Faksimiles im Bücherregal haben!“
