Sonatas and Partitas by Johann Sebastian Bach, Caprices by Nicolò Pa-ganini, and now the Six Sonatas op. 27 by Eugène Ysaÿe ... Henle presents in his catalog the major works of the repertoire for violin solo in Urtext edition! Ysaÿe's compositions, very demanding in terms of music and full of exceptional difficulties, are each dedicated to a virtuoso violinist of his time and "tailor-made" according to his own particular abilities. Through the discovery of new sources, the musical text is presented here in its "ultimate version", which goes in many places beyond the text of the first edition so far available.
