About Le Luth Doré Urtext Editions

For our editions, we use the term urtext, because we want to give a reliable musical text, that is as true as possible to the given sources and the composer’s intentions. For several reasons we are aware that it is not possible to reconstruct the one and only urtext. Very often we have several manuscript sources for the same piece and we often simply don’t know which version represents best the intention of the composer. We cannot get behind the sources we have, although we compare them, correct mistakes and try to establish the best musical text. Furthermore, even if we have autograph manuscripts, it is possible that they include some mistakes or that there even exist different versions or later additions by the composer.


Indeed, a text-critical editor is required to make decisions. The most important observations and editorial decisions are elucidated in the preface, in the critical commentary, in footnotes, or marked as such in the musical text. It therefore comes as no surprise that an editor has to invest a great deal of patience, knowledge and time when piecing together an urtext, that is true to the source and hopefully also to the composers’ intentions. Proven specialists with extensive knowledge and experience edit our Le Luth Doré

Urtext Editions in close cooperation with our editorial department

The verified musical text that is exclusively based on the musical sources is at the heart of each urtext edition.  If there are original fingerings and ornamentation, it has to be included as it helps us to understand, how these pieces were played then. Yet, aside from easy-to-read engraving, Le Luth Doré Urtext Editions also have to serve the needs of a practicing musician. In that sense, it is in our opinion sense full to include, if and when necessary, suggestions for fingerings and ornamentation: they are both meant as stimuli and serve as a starting point for the musician’s own study of the music. We are deeply grateful to all the extraordinary musicologists, music teachers and artists that put their knowledge and experience at our disposal for Le Luth Doré Urtext Editions.
