Following the revision of our facsimile of the Piano Sonata in b minor (HN 3227) in 2015, we are now proud to present the corresponding new Henle Urtext edition. With the help of the splendid facsimile reproduction we were able to analyse several passages in the autograph more reliably; in addition the editor Ernst Herttrich not only consulted the first edition but also a copy of a student of Liszt’s, in which the composer had made entries in his own hand. Clara Schumann reacted with a lack of understanding when Liszt sent the sonata: “It is only blind noise – not a single healthy thought, everything confused.” Today we view this differently. Our new edition of this key piano work is further enhanced by the sophisticated fingerings supplied by the piano titan Marc-André Hamelin.
