KEVIEWS.

"Dussek's 'Plus Ultra' and Woelfls 'Ne Plus Ultra; Sonatas for the Pianoforte, with Biographical and Critical Introductions—edited by J. W. Davison (Boosey and Sons)." We spoke some time since of Messrs. Boosey's new edition of Woelfl's Ne Plus Ultra, and suggested that it should be followed up by a re issue of the far greater work, which Dussek gave to the world under the title of Le RH w a Paris, and his London publishers rechristened Plus Ultra. We have now the two sonatas before us— remarkable compositions both, whatever difference may exist in their respective values as artistic creations—in one elegant volume, and at a price* which, not very many years ago, would hardly have paid for The Battle of Prague, or for the once familiar Sonata dedicated to Mrs. Ghiwnery.f That every zealous pianist, amateur or professional, will make himself master of treasures so cheaply attainable, there can hardly be a doubt.

We have an objection or two to make, which, though of no great weight, is perhaps worth consideration, and may therefore be stated at once. The order in which the two sonatas are given in Messrs. Boosey's edition should be reversed. That Woelfl's Ne Plus Ultra was both composed and published before its present companion; and even were that not the case, it would appear from the title page of the London edition of Plus Ultra :—

[ocr errors][ocr errors][merged small][merged small]
[merged small][merged small][table][merged small][merged small][ocr errors][merged small][table]

In page 10 of the old edition (second part of the first movement), the same point occurs twice, in different keys, and in both cases have been altered accordingly. Now that in the first instance a harsh, unpleasant effect of octaves, and in another a still more disagreeable feint at fifths is done away with, we admit; but at the same time, unless on some undoubted authority, it is always dangerous to meddle with classical works. Who, for example, would presume to interfere with any of Beethoven's seeming eccentricities t Dussek was certainly not a Beethoven; but he was a man of genius, and is accepted universally as a classic. He was, moreover, by no means one of the most' uniformly correct of writers, and for these reasons we trust that in the next issue Mr. Davison will enter into some explanation of the liberties he has taken. Elsewhere he has dispensed with a good number of wholly superfluous accidentals, a proceeding in which we wish every editor would follow him, since the only result of such a flux of flats and sharps is to perplex and add to the difficulty of the player, when deciphering a piece of music for the first time. By their partial evasion,

We spoke some time since of Messrs. Boosey's new edition of Woelfl's Ne Plus Ultra, and suggested that it should be followed up by a re issue of the far greater work, which Dussek gave to the world under the title of Le R4t ur a Paris, and his London publishers rechristened Plus Ultra. We have now the two sonatas before us— romarkable compositions both, whatever difference may exist in their respective values as artistic creations—in one elegant volume, and at a price* which, not very many years ago, would hardly have paid for The Battle of Prague, or for the once familiar Sonata dedicated to Mrs. Ckinnery.f That every zealous pianist, amateur or professional, will make himself master of treasures so cheaply attainable, there can hardly be a doubt.

We have an objection or two to make, which, though of no great weight, is perhaps worth consideration, and may therefore be stated at once. The order in which the two sonatas are given in Messrs. Boosey's edition should be reversed.

Now that in the first instance a harsh, unpleasant effect of octaves, and in another a still more disagreeable feint at fifths is done away with, we admit; but at the same time, unless on some undoubted authority, it is always dangerous to meddle with classical works. Who, for example, would presume to interfere with any of Beethoven's seeming eccentricities 1 Dussek was certainly not a Beethoven; but he was a man of genius, and is accepted universally as a classic. He was, moreover, by no means one of the most' uniformly correct of writers, and for these reasons we trust that in the next issue Mr. Davison will enter into some explanation of the liberties he has taken. Elsewhere he has dispensed with a good number of wholly superfluous accidentals, a proceeding in which we wish every editor would follow him, since the only result of such a flux of flats and sharps is to peiplex and add to the difficulty of the player, when deciphering a piece of music for the first time. By their partial evasion,
