Abstract: Peter Paul Fuchs’s Sonata for Violoncello Alone (1968)—previously unpublished—is typeset from the autographed manuscript through a methodical process of analysis and interpretation resulting in an urtext edition with critical commentary and a performance edition with editorial commentary. In the urtext, efforts are made to maintain aural purity with the autograph while conforming unconventional notation and music glyphs to modern standards of music notation. In cases where pitch classes in the autograph are ambiguous, selections for the urtext are made contextually based on theoretical analysis. The performance edition is based on the urtext and prioritizes clarity and playability while altering as few of the composer’s original markings as possible. Bowings, fingerings, and string indications are added, and clefs are changed, added, and taken away. These editions provide a basis for future scholarship on Peter Paul Fuchs and transition the manuscript to a performable state.
