Part, Arvo (Composer/Author) & Korver, Kristina (Contributor). LIEDER AUS DEN KINDHEIT/SONGS FROM CHILDHOOD FOR CHILDREN'S CHOIR AND PIANO. Vienna, Austria: Universal Edition, 2015. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 62 pages. As New.

Full Score of the composer's masterpiece, with accompanying text and complete recording on Compact Disc (CD). The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited first print run as a softcover original only by Universal Edition. The First Edition is now rare. The production values are outstanding: Oversize-volume format. Glossy pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover, as issued. Music score by Arvo Part. Text by Kristina Korver. CD appended at the back. Printed on pristine-white, thick uncoated stock paper in Vienna, Austria to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in a commemorative and collectible format, Arvo Part's "Lieder Aus Den Kindheit". His "Songs From Childhood For Children's Choir And Piano". The full score of all fifteen songs is preceded by an illuminating Essay by Kristina Korver in the German original and felicitous English translation. The CD is enclosed in its own plastic sleeve that is appended at the Back Cover. The songs are performed by the Children's Music Studio of Estonian Radio, recorded, mixed, and mastered by Teet Kehlmann. It was subsequently released on its own in 2016 as a "stand-alone" CD (the moving performance by the children's choir can be viewed on YouTube). An absolute "must-have" title for Arvo Part collectors. This copy of the Universal Edition is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the half-title page by Arvo Part. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: It should NOT be confused with the 2016 release of the "stand-alone" CD. A rare signed copy thus. One of the greatest composers of our time. A fine collectible copy.
