The New Hess Catalog of Beethoven's Works
This book is far more than a mere translation of Willy Hess's ground- breaking 1957 catalog; this new revised edition adds four new appendices, and a greatly expanded concordance. It also has a first edition of a hitherto unpublished piano transcription of the beginning of Beethoven's Seventh Symphony by Beethoven himself! It is a systematic overhaul of all 401 entries in the previous German edition. In addition to much new information on each entry, it clarifies misun- derstood entries, and corrects many mistakes. This new edition adds some much needed complete bibliographic references and incorporates forty-five years of Beethoven research into a single useful volume. Hardcover with dust jacket, 310 pages.

Raptus Editions - Ferdinand Ries: Overture to Die Braut von Messina, Op. 162
Ferdinand Ries (1784-1838) composed this Overture in 1829, as the opening piece of the Lower Rhenish Festival in Dusseldorf in 1830. The work was published in that year by Simrock in Bonn. In this majestic Overture, a number of stylistic features of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony are detecable, a work that was premiered by Ries in Dusseldorf some years earlier.

The overture is scored for symphony orchestra (with 4 horns, 4 trumpets and 3 trombones) and runs about ten minutes playing time. This is offered as a full score at 54pp. for the price shown below. However, it may be special ordered as No. 38902 in the complete parts (price on request).
