Early Music for 21st-Century Audiences: An Interview with the Founders of Lumedia Musicworks.
Our editions are based on original sources, whether they are manuscripts or first printings. We also try to make them as close to Urtexts [scholarly critical editions] as possible while still rendering them practical for use by present-day musicians. If some information in a primary source is ambiguous, contradictory, or missing altogether, we develop our own performance solutions while reminding the reader that they are simply interpretations. We want our printings to be usable by insightful musicians who may have their own ideas for bringing the music to life. All the while, we want to be conscious of practicality for modern performance.
