Kyllä, Beethoven osasi säveltää myös kuorolle!

The anniversary edition for all choirs!

With their extensive forces and complex parts, the performance of Beethoven's choral-symphonic works is hugely demanding for many choirs. For the major Beethoven anniversary in 2020 Carus is therefore expanding the repertoire of works available for mixed choirs. The Choral Collection Beethoven (ed. Jan Schumacher) contains especially attractive arrangements of Beethovens music from three centuries. Contents include the choral-symphonic repertoire in versions with piano accompaniment, some lesser-known unaccompanied works, and some seldom-performed works, such as pieces from his incidental music. During his lifetime Beethoven was so admired that contemporaries arranged his music mainly the well-known instrumental works for chorus. Some of these choral works were even performed at Beethovens own funeral. Subsequent generations of composers have also immersed themselves in Beethovens output. In addition, for the anniversary Carus has commissioned choral arrangements of Beethovens works from several contemporary composers.

The Choral Collection Beethoven contains 41 secular and sacred choral movements in a wide range of styles. Editor Jan Schumacher has created an indispensable resource with the Beethoven Choral Collection, particularly for amateur choirs, but the edition is also suitable for vocal ensembles and chamber choirs. Guaranteed enjoyment of Beethovens music well beyond the anniversary year.
