Title Cello Sonata in D Minor (REGINA BACK/DOUGLAS WOODFULL-HARRIS)

Debussy's 'Sonate pour violoncello et piano' was composed in the summer of 1915. It was the first of a planned set of six sonatas for various instrumental combinations of which Debussy only completed three. Imbued with that unmistakable Debussy charm this work has remained a standard in the repertoire since the premiere. It is without question the most performed cello sonata of the 20th century. Regina Back's Urtext edition for the first time makes use of Debussy's sketches held in a private collection which contain not only an important comment by Debussy regarding the balance of the instruments but also clarify several musical ambiguities found in the autograph and first edition. Bärenreiter's new Urtext edition comes with a detailed preface (Ger/Eng/Fr) elaborating not only on the genesis of the composition and its first performances but also providing performance practice information. The edition is rounded off with a facsimile and a critical commentary.

Title Deux Arabesques (Urtext, with fingering). Edited by Regina Back and Frederik Palme.

Close on the heels of Regina Back's critical edition of Debussy's Children's Corner come the equally popular Deux Arabesques in the definitive Urtext performing edition. These two jewels of the piano literature were first published in 1891 and made available at the time in a relatively small print run of 300 copies. In 1903 the French publisher Durand attempting to capitalize on Debussy's quickly growing fame published the Arabesque No.1 in an advertisement in Le Figaro and between 1904 and the new engraving with corrections and revisions in 1912 more than 50,000 copies were sold! Bärenreiter's new Urtext edition while drawing on all known sources, documents the geneses of the compositions until 1912 and the new edition is based on this corrected 1912 re-engraving.

Title Images for Orchestra (Score) Edited by Hans Schellevis. Publication Date: 07/2018.

Images is an impressionist orchestral work composed between 1905 and 1912 consisting of three movements entitled I Gigues, II Ibéria and III Rondes de printemps. Bärenreiter's scholarly-critical edition is the very first Urtext edition of this masterpiece. The previously available scores and parts are rife with mistakes and inconsistencies that have spawned endless debates among conductors and orchestral musicians about the 'correct' readings. The editor, Hans Schellevis, has consulted every available source, including previously unknown proof sheets with corrections from the composer that never found their way into the first edition. The edition also has an Introduction with information on the work's history and genesis and a Critical Commentary describing the sources, their interrelations and the readings.

Title Images, Series 1. Edited by Douglas Woodfull-Harris.

Debussy confidently wrote to his publisher Jacques Durand in August 1905: 'I believe ' without unwarranted vanity ' that these three pieces will prove to be good and that they will take a prominent place in the literature of piano music ' to the left of Schumann or to the right of Chopin 'as you like it'. Debussy's 'Images', already popular during Debussy's lifetime, delight with their iridescent tone colour and dazzling harmonies which reflect the newest discoveries in harmonic chemistry'. The virtuosic second series is notated throughout on three staves. In commemoration of Debussy's 150th birthday, Bärenreiter is publishing an Urtext edition of these pieces reflecting the most recent scholarship and source analysis. Clear presentation, fingering by Tamara Stefanovich and valuable information on performance practice all offer optimal conditions for the study of the work.

Title La Mer, Full Score. Edited by Douglas Woodfull-Harris.

'La Mer', which is an impressionistic work through and through, was composed between 1903-1905. Debussy, however, refined this work up until at least 1913. These corrections are found in a score which Debussy gave to his wife as a present for her private library in 1913. The new scholarly-critical edition draws on several important sources previously unavailable to musicologists, resulting in an array of new readings and corrections. In addition, there are many changes, especially in terms of articulation and dynamics. This new edition includes the famous 'fanfare' in Movement III, clearly marked in small print and brackets. This fanfare was excised in the 1910 reissue of the work, but was reinstated by a number of great conductors who knew Debussy, i.e. Monteux, Münch, Mitropoulos and Ansermet. They felt that the excision was a misunderstanding and that the fanfare was necessary for the structure of the movement. And so, the Bärenreiter edition presents the revival of a performing tradition which is committed to the fanfare. New Urtext edition with numerous corrections in comparison to other editions

Title Pour le Piano (Urtext, with fingering). Edited by Regina Back and Frederik Palme.

Little is known about the origins of Debussy's Pour le piano, only that the second movement Sarabande was written in 1894 and that the autograph carries the clear inscription '1901'. As with the Suite bergamasque , Pour le piano was published first by Fromont in 1901, although Debussy did not grant him the full rights to the composition until 1905. This delay had most certainly to do with Debussy's efforts to have Fromont transfer the rights to Pelléas et Mélisande to his new exclusive publisher Durand; in other words Fromont was to own Pour le piano only if Durand owned Pelléas . Bärenreiter's new critical scholarly edition edited by Regina Back relies on all known sources, documenting the genesis of the composition, provides a detailed Critical Commentary and enlightens with its text passages on performance practice and Debussy's piano music.

Title Preludes, Bk. 1. Edited by Thomas Kabisch. Fingerings by Martin Widmaier.

Debussy links the 12 'Préludes' in his first book not by a tonal scheme, but by means of a chain of associative mottos or titles which appear at the end of each piece and which may give a hint of the overall poetic content. The musicologist Thomas Kabisch who specialises in Debussy's piano music has edited this Urtext edition based on the latest research findings, resulting in an authoritative publication. The edition has a clear layout, practical page-turns and fingering by the experienced teacher Martin Widmaier, professor of piano at the Robert Schumann University, Düsseldorf. This fingering traces musical lines and supports sensitive sound production. There are also special fingering exercises to assist in the learning of the chordal structures. Thus, the edition provides the necessary prerequisites for studying these works. Urtext edition based on the latest state of research. Includes fingering as well as additional specific fingering exercises. Detailed foreword (Ger/Eng) and critical commentary (Eng).

Title Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun for Orchestra. Edited by Douglass Woodfull-Harris.

'Prélude á l'aprés-midi d'un faune', often referred to as the first composition of the 'modern' era, is one of Debussy's most popular and frequently performed orchestral works. The piece comes down to us in an array of sources, and several important ones are drawn upon for the first time in Bärenreiter's new scholarly-critical edition. Most of the currently available editions are based on the first edition from 1895 which, however, contains many engraver errors. When the corresponding orchestral parts are also taken into consideration, countless discrepancies are revealed. Bärenreiter's Urtext edition incorporates readings of a printed copy of the score from c. 1908 which shows corrections and emendations by the composer. These important changes, found in no other source, include metronome markings, different pitches and additional notes, as well as added tempo and articulation markings, which all subtly enhance Debussy's finely sculpted work. There is even a breath mark added to the famous solo flute passage which opens the work.

Title Première Rhapsodie for Orchestra with Solo Clarinet in B-flat. Piano Reduction. Edited by Douglas Woodfull-Harris.

Debussy's Premiere Rhapsodie is one of two concertante works completed, premiered and published during his lifetime. He was commissioned to write it in 1909 for the final examination at the Paris Conservatoire in 1910. Debussy orchestrated it in the summer of 1911. While transferring the clarinet part from the already published version for clarinet and piano, he made a few subtle changes, particularly in m. 201, which has been a bone of contention among clarinettists for over a century. The present scholarly-critical publication is the first Urtext edition of the orchestral version. It draws on every known source and takes into account a previously ignored source that sheds new light on the piece.

Title String Quartet, Op. 10 (Set of Parts). Edited by Douglas Woodfull-Harris.

Debussy's only string quartet composed in 1893 was his first masterwork. Together with two further works from this creative period, Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune and Pelléas et Mélisande, the quartet established the composer's position as the rising star of the French music scene. Discrepancies existed from the initial publication in 1894 between the score, corrected and seen into print by the composer and the parts, not corrected by him. At a later point, Debussy made a large number of corrections and alterations in a copy of the first edition; these alterations have been incorporated in this Bärenreiter Urtext edition. This scholarly-critical edition utilises all sources including the composer's letters, which offer a valuable insight into the genesis of the composition.

Title Suite Bergamasque - authoritative performing edition with fingering. Edited by Regina Back and Frederik Palme.

Claude Debussy's Suite bergamasque was first published in 1905 by the French publisher Fromont , but the suite's origins go back to the early 1890s when it was first under contract with the publisher Choudens . By the time of the suite's publication nearly 15 years had transpired and the originally three-movement suite had evolved into one with four-movements with different titles and the work was issued by a publisher to whom Debussy had difficult relations. The extant 1st proofs to the first edition, corrected by Debussy, clearly show his excision of dozens of bars as well as revealing numerous textural alterations. In 1909 at the earliest, Fromont re-engraved the suite and added many accidentals - in particular in the Passepied - thus altering the harmony. This later engraving has been the basis for all modern editions although no justification for the re-engraving or the resulting modifications can be traced back to Debussy. Regina Back's Urtext edition clearly lays out the development of the suite, documents the various reprints and the changes to them, and she offers unique insights into the title of the suite and the individual movements. Bärenreiter's new edition is based on the first edition corrected by Debussy - with its original harmony - and offers the later alterations as small print in the volume.

Title Syrinx for solo flute. Edited by Douglas Woodfull-Harris.

Debussy's 'Syrinx', a quintessentially French work, was composed in 1913. Originally it was intended as incidental music to Psyche, a play which his friend, poet and dramatist Gabriel Mouray had written. 'Syrinx' was only published in 1927. This work for solo flute comes down to us in the first edition publication and a non-autograph manuscript copy formally used by Louis Fleury, the performer at the premiere in 1913. Unfortunately the manuscript used to engrave the first edition no longer exists and so we are left with two sources which differ in many details. Bärenreiter's new critical edition of 'Syrinx' relies primarily on the first edition score adding readings from the non-autograph source where they are musically justified.

Title Works for Violin and Piano. Edited by Douglas Woodfull-Harris.

Claude Debussy had difficulties finishing his last major work, the Sonata for Violin and Piano. This can be seen in the many drafts which have been handed down and the fact that the cycle for which it was conceived was left unfinished. The melancholy work originated under the impact of the First World War. The first edition, published during the final year of Debussy's life, contains many rhythmic errors. The non-autograph metronome marks and the discrepancies between the separate violin part and the violin part in small print in the piano score are two problems that have affected the work's later reception. Both are examined here in a fresh light. In addition to the Sonata, this edition contains arrangements of La fille aux cheveux de lin, Il pleure dans mon coeur and Minstrels by the American violinist Arthur Hartmann. It was Hartmann who inspired Debussy to make his own arrangement of the well-known piano piece Minstrels, also included in our edition.
