...:Our First Edition

Our First Edition

Monn Sinfonia à 4

In our activities we try to get a fresh view of well-known pieces and to meet little-known and unknown works.

This time we are especially delighted to meet the highly interesting Sinfonia à 4 in D of the Viennese precursor of classicism, Matthias Georg Monn.

We are preparing our own edition of this piece; it follows the source (from the archive of Vienna’s Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde) in all details and only adds some very few articulations and corrects only some obvious mistakes.

It is one of only few modern editions to refrain from adapting the use of accidentals to modern convention but to use them according to the source.

Why is this important?

Come and see at the workshop!
