150 years of publication history had to elapse until a music text of the Mass in B minor was published that truly goes back to Johann Sebastian Bach's definitive version, inasmuch as it can be determined.

At last: 100% Johann Sebastian!

150 years of publication history had to elapse until a music text of the Mass in B minor was published that truly goes back to Johann Sebastian Bachs definitive version, inasmuch as it can be determined.
The new Breitkopf Urtext edition by Joshua Rifkin draws on all relevant sources to restore the Mass to the state in which Bach left it for posterity. This means, first, a clear separation of the Kyrie and Gloria from the earlier Missa of 1733. Moreover, in the Credo the Symbolum Nicenum Rifkin has faced the challenge of sweeping away the overlay of additions by C.P.E. Bach and eliminating his alterations more thoroughly than Friedrich Smend had in the Neue Bach Ausgabe of 1954 and in later editions as well.

The NBA edition of this work has long been thought to be unsatisfactory, so in this case Breitkopf study score is better as well as a few euros cheaper. (Early Music Review)

They were commissioned by the publisher after Sibelius gave his agreement. In fact the composer who was not always mildly disposed towards such undertakings even went over them as can be seen in the composer's copies. Qasid bedeutet auf Deutsch Kasida - eine poetische Gattung der arabischen Literatur die seit dem Mittelalter in Gebrauch war. Qasid bedeutet auch dass etwas in zwei Teile geteilt ist. Alle Qasid-Stucke sind daher als Form zweiteilig. Qasid 3 war einen Auftragswerk des Trio Iberia und wurde im Auditorio Nacional von Madrid in Mai 2002 uraufgefuhrt. (Jose M. Sanchez-Verdu) Qasid significa en arabe casida una forma poetica de la literatura arabe clasica usada desde la Edad Media. Qasid es tambien algo dividido en dos partes. Todas las piezas de este ciclo estan divididas formalmente en dos partes. Qasid 3 nacio como encargo del Trio Iberia para el Ciclo de Camara y Polifonia y fue estrenada en el Auditorio Nacional de Madrid en mayo de 2001. (Jose M. Sanchez-Verdu).
