For the first time, G. Henle Publishers presents a facsimile edition of the autograph manuscript of the famous “Archduke Trio” op. 97 as a special offering for bibliophiles. The original in Cracow is part of Biblioteka Jagiellonska’s impressive collection of manuscripts of the most significant classical music. Star pianist Mitsuko Uchida has supported this publication with a generous donation – her own personal contribution to the great anniversary year. Julia Ronge, curator of the collection at the Beethoven-Haus in Bonn, outlines the genesis and particularities of the manuscript in a knowledgeable introduction. G. Henle Publishers offers the two-volume edition – the autograph is notated partly in vertical, partly in horizontal format – in a sumptuous decorative box.
