For a commission by three major opera houses we prepared a new critical, yet practical edition of Richard Strauss’ most popular opera. To accomplish this first edition after more than hundred years, the materials as used and annotated by the Dresden, Munich and Berlin opera orchestras were evaluated and corrected. The complete materials have been produced in highest typesetting and offset printing quality and are available directly from us.
During the past months we have advised and supported eNote during the development of their upcoming app. We are proud to see that our contribution helped them to get closer to their goals. The whole issue is rather complex and hard to communicate adequately to the general public — Kate Connolly tried it for The Guardian.
Daniel Barenboim and Emmanuel Pahud asked ten of today’s most exciting composers to write new works, from solo pieces to compositions for ensemble. The concerts of the Festival of New Music at Boulezsaal will be streamed live and made available for 30 days on the Boulezsaal website.
Amoungst the First Performances Philippe Manoury’s “Soubresauts”, a Flute-Solo after his Flute concerto “Saccades”. We prepared the materials for both works.

On the 2nd of February the Opera House Stuttgart will bring Sergej’s “Boris” to the stage. Swetlana Alexijewitsch’s award winning book serves as Newski’s libretto – the work will be interwoven with Mussorgski’s opera from 1869 (libretto after Alexander Puschkin). The staging is by Paul-Georg Dittrich, whose introduction (in German) can be seen here. Titus Engel will be conducting.
