Mozart's Requiem: On Preparing a New Edition [1988]

£39.99

Product description

Published in 1988 by Clarendon Press, Oxford. Illustrated with short musical notations, includes a bibliography and an index.

This text discusses Mozart's "Requiem" which was left incomplete when he died on 5 December 1791. The score of his "Requiem" which he had been attempting to finish, to fulfil an anonymous commission from Count Franz von Walsegg-Stuppach was eventually completed by his pupil and assistant, Franz Xaver Sussmayr on the request of Mozart's widow.
Considerable controversy has surrounded the question of how much of the work was, in fact by Sussmayr and how much was filled out from Mozart's original sketches. The author's conclusion here throws doubt on Sussmayr's claims for his own contribution.
Maunder has prepared a new edition of the "Requiem", which attempts to come closer to what Mozart might have written had he lived to complete it. This present work, dealing with his preparation for the reconstruction, contains detailed arguments concerning the authenticity or otherwise of the movements missing from Mozart's autograph.

Complete with dust jacket, which is lightly yellowed but in good order. Fresh and clean throughout with a firm binding. Very slight yellowing to top edge of the pages.
