When Gunter Henle founded his Urtext publishing house in 1948; he opened his catalog with our two-volume edition of Mozart's complete piano sonatas; these still bear the publisher's numbers HN 1 and HN 2. The four-digit order numbers HN 9001 and 9002 merely designate the reduced-sized pocket scores of these larger reference editions; and are textually exactly the same. Naturally; both Mozart volumes (large and small) have been revised many times over the years; enabling G. Henle Verlag; unlike other music publishers; to guarantee that they offer a musical text that reflects the most current state of research. Mozart's autograph manuscript survives for many of the sonatas; and for some works the composer lightly revised and enriched his text before printing; which is why the Henle Urtext edition reproduces both versions in such cases. The editor's preface and Critical Commentary provide detailed information about all sources and textual issues.
