For half a century Henle's edition of the Beethoven sonatas – the “New Testament” of piano repertoire – has been universally recognized as the standard starting-point for any serious study of these works. Now; with the publication of the three op. 31 sonatas in revised separate editions; we are raising the yardstick another notch: no less a musician than the pianist and conductor Murray Perahia has agreed; for the first time ever; to publish his fingerings and; as co-editor; to confide his profound insights into the sources to music lovers everywhere. The musical text has been prepared in strict accordance with the rules of modern Urtext editing; and the volume is rounded off with a lengthy and informative preface and detailed notes on sources and alternative readings.
