This landmark edition, by Barry Cooper, satisfies the exacting requirements of performer, teacher, and scholar. It is totally faithful to Beethoven's music text, corrects long-standing errors and misconceptions, and includes the latest research from Cooper, a world authority on Beethoven. Unlike other editions, the complete 35 sonatas are included, beginning with WoO47 Nos.1-3. For the performer or teacher, there are realized ornaments, suggested fingerings, sympathetic page turns and layout -- all beautifully presented -- and an Introduction on performance practice, articulation, dynamics, pedalling, etc. Every sonata comes with a critical Commentary, including the work's history, a full assessment of the sources, and detailed notes on interpretation. Available as three separate volumes, and as a boxed set. Comes with bonus audio CD of commentary and demonstrations.

Paper cover. Includes: Opp.2, 7, 10, 13, 14, 49 and WoO47.

    Difficulty Level:
  • May 28, 2012 better to study, than to play from

    I was disappointed in the binding and layout of this music- it does not lie well on the stand to play. Usually Beethoven sonatas are in 2 volumes, but this edition comes in 3. Many of the sonatas I wanted are evidently in book 2, which will overlap a lot...

    with the Henle edition book 2 I already have. Be sure you know that this has only the first 1/3rd of the sonatas. There are extensive notes, so maybe good for studying and analysis.
