Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 33. Laaber, 2015. Oblong, 32 x 24 cm, 25, 2 pp. Full-color facsimile of the final version of the autograph dating from 1821, with moralistic warning of a trout being caught by a fisherman, metaphor for young women being chased by men. This particular autograph, the "fifth version" of the piece, was long unknown and it was not until 1975 that it appeared in the Schubert Complete Edition. Not generally the most performed version, it features a number of "earlier" melodic variants in a handful of passages and is the only version with a piano introduction. Introduction in Ger-Eng provides a detailed analysis of the five versions and the central problems relating to the compositional and performing practices of Schubert's day. Hardbound in decorative paper. A beautiful gift for any Schubert enthusiast. $58 (more info... ) [item no.9399]
