Urtext. Composed by Domenico Cimarosa (1749-1801). Edited by Reinmar Emans.

At long last: complete with the Libera me Domenico Cimarosa's Requiem, composed in 1787, achieved widespread dissemination through copies shortly after its premiere, and has remained a repertoire work of classical church music to this day.

Choral score. Breitkopf and Haertel #CHB-5238-02. Published by Breitkopf and Haertel (BR.CHB-5238-02).

Item Number: BR.CHB-5238-02

ISBN 9790004412404. 7.5 x 10.5 in inches.

All the more amazing is the discovery of an authentic, subsequently added Libera me movement that is found in the main sources (autograph score, original parts), but had not been published up to now. The complete liturgical form of the Requiem requires a Libera me and with this new edition, Cimarosa's Requiem can now finally be performed again its entirety, more than 200 years after it was written. Reinmar Emans' new Urtext edition thus contains much more than just the previously known music text. Valuable aid was provided here by a number of contemporary copies which yielded further important details.

Mit der Breitkopf Urtext Edition des Cimarosa-Requiems liegt erstmals eine Fassung vor, die sowohl vollstandig ist als auch der ursprunglichen Gestalt der Komposition so nahe wie moglich kommt. (Musica Sacra)

Die Abweichungen dieser Fassung vom edierten Notentext werden im Lesartenverzeichnis dargestellt, das, wie auch die Beschreibung und Bewertung der Quellen, den Anforderungen einer hirstorisch-kritischen Ausgabe bestens gerecht wird. (Andreas Friesenhagen, FonoForum)
