Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
Symphony No. 8 in F major Op. 93
Breitkopf Urtext | edited by Peter Hauschild [orch]
Ludwig van Beethoven composed his Eighth Symphony op. 93 in 1811/1812. As a consequence of the wartime upheavals of those years, the world premiere of the work did not take place until 27 February 1814 in Vienna under the composer's direction.
Hauschilds new edition is based on all the major primary sources. With masterful expertise, Hauschild combines source criticism with the demands of performance practice, while keeping the Critical Notes brief (it goes without saying that they are in the score). His editorial emendations can thus be checked immediately. Whoever seeks more about how the Breitkopf new edition differs from other available editions will also find this information quickly and easily.
