Mendelssohn wrote the Symphony No. 5 ("Reformation"), Op. 107, for celebrations commemorating the Reformation and the Augsburg Confession. The composer strove to formulate the idea of the Reformation in symphonic terms, conveying both the joy and the suffering implicit in the subject. The work builds to a powerful finale that features variations on Martin Luther's confessional chorale "Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott" ("A Mighty Fortress Is Our God").
A staple of the orchestral repertoire, the work is reprinted from the authoritative edition published by Breitkopf & Härtel of Leipzig. This high-quality, moderately priced edition is the perfect vehicle for play or study. The sturdy binding is specially designed to open flat, and it offers the additional convenience of large, easy-to-read noteheads and spacious margins for notes and analysis.

Review:

The task of finding sheet music and scores that are truly affordable is a perennial problem for music students, music lovers, and even professional performers. By reprinting other companies' music when the copyright runs out, Dover Publications has been a leader in this area for decades. Best known for its full-size scores, Dover offers a new line that should cheer the impoverished student and anyone else who appreciates a bargain. The company has now moved into the miniature-scores market. Mini scores are ideal study guides, sized right to fit into a pocket or handbag, and easy to pull out and follow along with at concerts. The new line from Dover (featuring a nice wide-bottom margin for note taking) carries a much lower retail price than the competition's.

The Dover score of Mahler's "Symphony No. 5 in C-sharp Minor" is a reprint of one originally published in 1904 by C.F. Peters of Leipzig. They've spruced it up with the addition of a helpful four-page glossary of German musical terms with their English equivalents. Unlike the three symphonies that immediately preceded it, "Symphony No. 5 in C-sharp Minor" is not programmatic in nature, nor does it make use of singers. Mahler composed it during his engagement and early years of marriage to Alma Schindler. The symphony's structure builds to the resounding climax of the final movement, pausing at the fourth movement for a meditation on his love for Alma. This is a magnificently complex score, and one that rewards repeat listeners. --Sarah Bryan Miller

From the Back Cover:

Widely regarded as the most memorable and musically concentrated of Beethoven's orchestral works, his Symphony No. 5 is also one of the most popular works in the literature. With its unforgettable four-note motive, lean textures, and superb orchestration, it is a classic example of the thematic unification Beethoven developed during his middle period—a creative time during which his music exhibited unprecedented freedom of expression and exultation.
This magisterial and magnificent work—reproduced here from the authoritative Litolff edition—appears in this edition in full score, with original instrumentation and bar-numbered movements. Ideal for study in the classroom, at home, or in the concert hall, this affordable, high-quality, conveniently sized volume will be the edition of choice for music students and music lovers alike.
