Clara: Piano Concerto in A minor Op. 7 Breitkopf Urtext ed. by Janina Klassen This work by Clara Schumann first appeared on a recording; the edition needed more time, since the sources were subjected to a critical scrutiny. The result is a score that is unassailable in its scholarship, yet oriented for performance. Janina Klassen´s engrossing preface also offers highly interesting insights intothe artistic exchanges in the Schumann household. In May 1994, Clara Schumann’s Opus 7 has taken its due place in the phalanx of the musical world’s „major piano concertos“: for the first Clara Schumann Piano Competition, it appeared on the list of audition pieces for the final round alongside thetime-honored standard repertoire pieces. Our (first) edition for 2 pianos now gives Clara Schumann’s Piano Concerto an equal chance among all the pieces being prepared for the competition.
