This new scholarly-critical edition of String Quartet op. 127, the first of Beethoven’s late quartets, follows upon Urtext publications of opp. 18, 59, 74 and 95.

Once more the editor is the renowned Beethoven authority Jonathan Del Mar. All surviving sources have been consulted including sketches to clarify the conflicting readings in the autograph. Not only has Del Mar reconstructed Beethoven’s original beaming, phrasing, articulation and length of crescendo hairpins, he has also corrected wrong notes that have taken hold in editions published over the years and has supplemented missing notes.

Press reviews
„Die Neuedition bietet eine breite Fülle von Ansätzen, sich neu und intensiver mit diesem zu Unrecht lange vernachlässigten Großwerk zwischen Sinfonie und Psalmvertonung zu befassen. Es ist sehr zu wünschen, dass diese prächtige Ausgabe die weitere Beschäftigung mit dem eindrucksvollen Werk und viele zukünftige Aufführugen motiviert.”
(Karl Georg Berg, Das Orchester 11-2020)
