Selected piano pieces from Bärenreiter’s Urtext catalogue are now appearing for the first time with fingerings. (The well-known Bärenreiter Urtext editions without fingerings remain in print as before).
These new volumes combine the definitive Urtext from the New Complete Editions with tried and tested fingerings from well-known pianists and teachers. They also contain notes on interpretation.
