Henle already published Beethoven’s piano concertos in full score as part of its New Beethoven Complete Edition and brought out op. 73 in its study score series. This practical edition for two pianos is intended to make these works available to a broader public. The piano reduction of the orchestral part has been compiled from the musical text edited by Hans-Werner Küthen for series iii, volume 3 of the Complete Edition (Klavierkonzerte II), likewise issued by Henle. The solo piano part has been adopted from that same volume. Further information on the presentation of the text, the state of the sources, and the history of the work’s genesis, performance and publication can be found in the preface and critical report to the above-mentioned volume in the Complete Edition.
