Topic Summary
Posted by: Prima la musica! Posted on: Sep 2nd, 2003, 7:21am
We hope you'll be happy to learn about a new early music publisher available now on the web.  
Prima la musica! is a British company, based in Spain, but run by Brian Clark, a prize-winning Scottish musicologist, specialising in 17th and 18th century music from Italy, France, and the German-speaking lands, primarily by composers who have long been overshadowed by "the great masters".  
Our publications are "Urtext", in that no editorial slurs, dynamics, phrase markings, etc., are added. When appropriate, however, they do include a basic realisation of keyboard parts, so that non-specialists are not excluded from enjoying such beautiful music.  
Most titles in the catalogue have a link that lets you see a sample page, so that you can evaluate the music according to your own needs. We sell single scores or performing sets. Some of the larger pieces also include choral scores and the facility to order extra string parts. If you have particular requirements for a performance, you can always e-mail us details and we will contact you as soon as possible.  
Our catalogue includes works by Grandi and Rovetta, colleagues of Monteverdi, Dumont and Charpentier, Erlebach, Fasch, Pachelbel (not the canon!), Schmelzer, Stoelzel and Vanhal. New titles are added almost weekly, and we are happy to undertake commissioned work according to your own wishes.  
We also publish unusual pieces, intended more for teaching purposes, such as Theodor Richter's 1854 March for Six Violas (no, it's not a joke!), as well as an arrangement for six clarinets (or other winds).  
A new series will be devoted to music by the Swiss composer, Johann Melchior Gletle, edited by the Alsatian musicologist, Jean-Luc Gester. He will also contribute individual pieces to our catalogue, the first being an otherwise unknown piece by one of J. S. Bach's uncles, which survives in a unique manuscript in Strasbourg.  
In addition, we sell music in the Concerto Editions series (including works from 17th and 18th century printed sets, like Albinoni and Manfredini, and also from manuscript sources, such as Heinichen, Pisendel and Zelenka).  
Please click on the link below to find out more. E-mail us your suggestions for improvements, omissions, etc., or to tell us you'd rather not receive any further communication from us.  
And note that we offer 10% automatic discount on sales over 100.

Just to let everyone know that Prima la musica! has moved to Scotland and continues to thrive - we now have two more musicologists on our freelance team, one working on early-18th-century symphonies, the other on theatre music from late-17th-century England. We have just added new titles by Rigatti, Monteverdi and Barbara Strozzi to our solo motets selection, and will soon be selling a CD made by Schola Cantorum of Yale University of Vespers from Salzburg using exclusively editions by Prima la musica! The choir will be touring in England May 2005 with this program (Biber, Muffat, Mayr, Leopold I and Legrenzi). We happily take on commissioned work, so if you want something but can't find an edition, get in touch.
All the best!
