Ere Editions aims to publish, in modern critical editions, interesting but lesser known 18th and 19th century music for which no modern edition, or no good modern edition is currently available.
The music is carefully edited from early prints and/or manuscripts. Unnecessary modernization of the notation has been avoided, and editorial interventions are kept to a minimum. A preface and an editorial report, describing the sources and the editorial methods chosen, are always included. All editorial changes or additions that have been deemed necessary are either typographically differentiated, or mentioned in the critical report.
The layout of the editions is optimized for performers’ practical use, aiming at a clear visual appearance and optimal readability of the printed page. The utmost care has been taken to always ensure convenient page turns for every player, also for the keyboard player playing from the score.
A major work in the early Romantic harp chamber music repertory, featuring the unusual combination of piano and harp with other instruments. The work exists in two original versions by the composer, which differ in the instrumentation of the accompanying ensemble. The sextet version has three wind instruments (clarinet, horn and bassoon) with a double bass, while the quintet version has a string trio. Up until now, any performances have had to be played using the rather faulty parts of the first edition; this first modern edition corrects the errors, and both versions are now published in score for the first time.Ferdinand Ries: Quintet in G minor op. 142
