Do Henle editions have cadenzas?

November 14, 2018, 5:17 PM · I've been instructed to get the Henle edition of a Mozart concerto.

Do these tend to have cadenzas included or will I have to source them elsewhere?

Thank you :)

I like the Barenreiter urtext editions, though. They include several common cadenzas.

Also, Henle urtexts tend to be edited, so, while they are urtexts in that they distinguish what is in the original and what the editors added, they tend to seem more encumbered to me. I do not have any of the concerti in that edition, however, so I cannot speak to cadenzas. I would ask your teacher if you can get a Barenreiter instead.

November 15, 2018, 9:12 PM · The Mozart concertos are available in both Barenreiter and Henle editions. I believe they are different critical editions.
November 16, 2018, 5:24 AM · I agree with Lydia. You can get both. And most Henle editions I have (Mozart not being any), they come with 2 parts. One edited, one "blank" (same as Barenreiter). However, I'm unsure as to multiple cadenzas. For the concerti I do have in H, they provide only one cadenza
