Aspects of Reception History
I reproduce here a selection of forewords and editors’ commentaries to editions of Chopin’s works from the nineteenth and twentieth century. Gathered in one place for the first time, this documentation allows readers to examine nineteenth-century editing theory and editorial premises.
Those forewords and commentaries were notably written by the leading Chopin editors of their time, including Karol Mikuli, Hermann Scholtz, and Antoine-François Marmontel, though a number of editors left no such documents (for example Jan Kleczyński, George Mathias, and Karl Klindworth).
English translations are quoted from original editions where those were bilingual or are mine; they are reproduced unabridged and unmodified. ← 323 | 324 →
