The critical edition of Agnese


After the first performance of 1809 in Parma, Agnese enjoyed a considerable success and wide international circulation until the 40’s of the 19th century. However, despite such success, so far no edition of the full score was ever published.

The critical edition elaborated by Giuliano Castellani on Paer’s autograph score, on the original librettos and on other handwritten sources reviewed and corrected by the composer, finally makes available to theaters and performers a reliable orchestral score – accompanied by the vocal score and the orchestral parts – and a philologically reliable one.

This edition proposes the original version of Agnese (Parma, 1809). In the appendix, the new beautiful alternative arias and duets are included, those composed by Paer in Paris in 1819 for Joséphine Mainvielle Fodor, Marco Bordogni, Felice Pellegrini and, in 1824, for Giuditta Pasta.
