Bartók in Vatican

26. April 2022

We are pleased that our scores are chosen as protocol gifts.

Among others a volume of the Bartók Complete Edition has been gifted to Pope Francis by the Hungarian prime minister. The volume – published jointly by our company, and Henle Verlag, Munich – contains the Concerto for orchestra, composed during the World War II in the USA. Viktor Orbán visited Vatican City on 21st April 2022. “No one understands us in our language, so music is our only option” – stated the head of government.

The launch of the Bartók Complete Edition was announced in 2015 by our publishing house. The complete works will be published in 48 volumes according to the plan. The publications are being prepared according to the highest scientific norms, however the body text can be used by musicians also for practical purpose.

New Urtext edition of Bartók’s complete choral works

11. März 2021

A new Urtext edition of Béla Bartók’s complete choral works was launched in March 2021. The three-volume edition is based on volume 9 of the Béla Bartók Complete Critical Edition (Z. 15009), a joint publication of G. Henle Verlag, Munich, and Editio Musica Budapest Zeneműkiadó. The lyrics in this edition are in the original languages and in the translations authorized by the composer. Literal English translations are provided in the appendix, which also includes early and alternative versions of the works.

Our edition is distinguished by absolute authenticity regarding both the musical text and the style of notation, as well as superior engraving and print quality. The edition is complete with informative prefaces (in Hungarian, English, and German) and detailed Editorial Comments (in Hungarian and English). The Comments give an overview of the textual, folk-music, and compositional sources, and provide detailed information on the performance practice of Bartók’s choral works.

The volumes have been printed on high-quality and environmentally-friendly paper.

The three volumes are available in two formats: paperback and clothbound. The paperback editions can be bought separately, while the clothbound volumes are available only together in a slipcase.

Each work included in these volumes will also be published separately during the following months.

New orchestra material of Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra released

22. Februar 2021

A new orchestra material of Béla Bartók’s orchestral highlight, Concerto for Orchestra, composed in 1943 in the United States, is now available on hire. Concerto for Orchestra is the first orchestra material produced from the Béla Bartók Complete Critical Edition (BBCCE), a joint publication of G. Henle Verlag, Munich, and Editio Musica Budapest Zeneműkiadó. (The full score in the BBCCE and Henle’s study score are also available on sale.)

In preparing this edition, the first edition, all compositional sources as well as the sound recordings made in Bartók’s lifetime have been critically evaluated. The orchestra parts were carefully prepared in terms of accuracy, easy legibility, as well as sensible cues and page turns. The parts have been tested by the Hungarian National Philharmonic, a leading orchestra with a unique experience in playing Bartók. The conductor’s score and the parts share the same big format (25×32.5 cm), and are printed on superior-quality paper.

One set includes two conductor’s scores, 9-8-7-6-5 strings, 4 copies of percussion, and one copy of each of the remaining parts. The material is available on hire at Universal Music Publishing Editio Musica Budapest Ltd.

Embrace music – oder: Mache die Musik zum Teil deines Lebens! Diese Losung haben wir uns in diesem Jahr auf unsere Fahnen geschrieben.

Egal wo wir heutzutage auch sind, überall sind wir von Musik umgeben. Viel intensiver und permanenter als seit Menschengedenken auf unsere Ahnen je zuvor wirken musikalische Reize auf uns ein. Aber was für ein Verhältnis haben wir zur Musik? Ein passives oder ein aktives? Konsumieren wir sie nur oder machen wir auch welche?

Wir bei EMB wissen, dass das Musizieren Freude bereitet. Eine Freude, die sich vervielfacht, wenn wir für andere spielen. Indem wir gute Musik machen, gelangen wir darüber hinaus auch in den Besitz ganz besonderer Fähigkeiten und Werte: Konzentration, Offenheit, Sensibilität, Rücksichtnahme auf andere und Zusammenarbeit.

Mit unseren Publikationen verfolgen wir das Ziel, möglichst vielen Kindern, Jugendlichen und Erwachsenen zu helfen, die Freude am Musizieren und dessen Wert zu erfahren. 


10. Mai 2010
Wir freuen uns über Ihren Besuch und begrüßen Sie herzlich!

Alle Publikationen können Sie über unser Warenkorb-System online bestellen.
