Six Minuets for Wind Instruments Book 2 Nos 4-6 (Playing Score)
Schubert Six Minuets for Wind Instruments Book 2 Nos 4-6 (Playing Score)
for flute, oboe, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns
In the winter of 1968/9 during the course of research into source material for the New Schubert Edition, the editor Christa Landon found in the archives of the Wiener Männergesang-Verein some 50 pages of hitherto unknown Schubert autographs. Among these autographs from every period of Schubert’s creative life is one containing six minuets – Nos I – III in score for wind instruments, and Nos IV – VI in the form of a piano draft on two staves.
The instrumentation for wind instruments in this edition by Austrian musicologist Alexander Weinmann is of course an arrangement: such adaptations, issued by publishers and sanctioned by composers, were customary in Schubert’s day.
