Following the revision of Henle's facsimile of the Piano Sonata in B minor (51483227) in 2015; they now present the corresponding new Urtext edition. With the help of the splendid facsimile reproduction they were able to analyze several passages in the autograph more reliably; in addition the editor Ernst Herttrich not only consulted the first edition but also a copy of a student of Liszt's; in which the composer had made entries in his own hand. Clara Schumann reacted with a lack of understanding when Liszt commented: “It is only blind noise not a single healthy thought; everything confused.” Today we view this differently. Henle's new edition of this key piano work is further enhanced by the sophisticated fingerings supplied by the piano titan Marc André Hamelin.
