Theodore Presser to distribute Vienna Urtext.

Theodore Presser Company is now the distributor of Vienna Urtext, publisher of critical editions in practical form, for both the United States and Canadian markets.

Vienna Urtext was founded in 1972 as a joint effort of publishing houses B. Schott's Sohne (now Schott Musik International) of Mainz, Germany, and Universal Edition of Vienna, Austria. Vienna Urtext seeks to recapture a composer's original intentions through critical editions. Its work in restoring the most important classical works to their true origins has resulted in a large catalog of performing editions, complete with background information, critical notes on editorial decisions and an overview of performance techniques from the relevant period.

Vienna Urtext is most widely known for its publication of the complete piano sonatas of Beethoven, based upon the work of Heinrich Schenker (1867-1935). Recent additions include the Telemann Fantasies for solo flute, Schumann Violin Sonatas and the Dvorak Sonatine for violin and piano.
