Helbling Viola d'amore Publication

Marianne Rônez & Ernst Kubitschek (Eds.). 2016.
Suites for Viola d'amore and Continuo, 4 Volumes, ~100 pages each, Euro 31/39 per volume. Also digital as pdf.

"The present critical first edition makes available to the musical world a previously unknown manuscript from the Lower Austrian Benedictine monastery of Göttweig, containing suites for viola d'amore and continuo. The manuscript dates from around 1700; its composer and scribe are unknown. As can be deducted from several concordances, the composer must have been very close to Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber.

This edition of the complete manuscript in four volumes constitutes a valuable addition to the literature for viola d'amore. Each volume contains a preface and critical remarks in German and English, the viola d'amore part both in scordatura notation and transcribed into sounding pitches, and a setting of the figured bass. Separate parts for viola d'amore (in both forms of notation together) and bass are available.."
