Brahms: Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel for Piano op. 24

Christian Köhn is a pianist with a deep understanding of Brahms# piano music. Now he has edited a new Urtext edition of Brahms# variations (1861) on an eight-bar theme from Handel#s #Keyboard Suite No. 1# (#Suite de pièces de Clavecin#, Vol. 2). Köhn has drawn on every available source and incorporated the most recent musicological discoveries. With his fingering, a well-presented layout and optimum page turns, the volume meets all the demands of a practical performing edition. A detailed foreword illuminates the work#s genesis and sources while presenting valuable information on contemporary performance practice. This scholarly-critical edition of the #Handel Variations# adds a central work to Bärenreiter#s comprehensive series of Brahms# piano music in Urtext editions.
