Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in B minor Op. 61, No. 3 (Violin and Piano Reduction). Composed by Camille Saint-Saens (1835-1921) and Camille Saint-Sa. Edited by Peter Jost. For Piano, Violin. Violin. Henle Music Folios. Pages: Score = VI and 45 * Vl Part = 19. Softcover. 72 pages. G. Henle #HN712. Published by G. Henle (HL.51480712).
Now, for the first time, Henle publishes an urtext edition of this famous violin concerto (it is also the first German edition). The detailed preface provides exhaustive information on the work's genesis and sources. Ernst Schliephake has sought the advice of Ruggiero Ricci for the fingering and bowing marks, and Johannes Umbreit has revised the composer's estimable piano reduction to make it more playable and to meet the main requirement of an urtext edition: maximum fidelity to the original orchestral score.
