The Wiener Urtext Edition was founded in 1972 by the publishing houses B. Schott´s Söhne (today Schott Musik International), of Mainz, and Universal Edition, of Vienna. The objective of this joint enterprise is to make musical works from the baroque to the early modern period available for practical use in critical editions, so-called Urtext editions. Although still a relatively new publishing house, the Wiener Urtext Edition stands within a long tradition which received its decisive impulse as early as the twenties and thirties of the 20th century, from the activities of Heinrich Schenker in Vienna.
