Isaac Alb niz (1860-1909) began his musical life as a piano prodigy in Barcelona at the age of four, and it is as a prolific composer of solo works for the pianoforte that we celebrate him most. This inexpensive Dover edition, designed to give you a lifetime of musical enjoyment, presents two of Alb niz's best-known works in authoritative editions: the piano suite Iberia, generally considered to be his masterpiece; and Espa a, which contains the "Tango," his most popular individual work. Iberia is a collection of twelve musical scenes of Spanish life, principally Andalusian, written in the years from 1906 to 1909. Its brilliant and complex character is suffused with the rhythms and harmonies of Spanish popular music, to which Alb niz turned for inspiration in the last years of his life. Espa a, an earlier work first published in 1890, is made up of six piano pieces that subtly reflect the influences of the piano literature of the nineteenth-century salon and -- like Iberia -- the harmony and style of impressionism, which Alb niz himself helped to create. Both works reveal characteristics of the highly individualized piano technique Alb niz developed from early childhood and perfected under the tutelage of Liszt.
This remarkable book brings together in one sturdy, yet inexpensive volume four of the most memorable and frequently played sets of works for the piano by Enrique Granados (1867-1916), one of Spain's greatest modern composers. They are reprinted here from early editions. The piano suite Goyescas, first performed in Barcelona in 1911, would bring Granados his greatest, most enduring success. In each of its six pieces, the composer employs wild, insistent melody and highly individual rhythm, harmony, and coloring to create dramatic impressions of paintings by Goya, to whose work Granados was deeply drawn. The exquisite Spanish Dances, a suite of early works, were much admired by the leading composers of the day, among them Massenet, Saint-Saens, and Grieg, not only for their distinctive musical qualities, but also for the new direction in Spanish music which they heralded. They remain today perhaps the most performed of Granados's work. Less well known in America are the beautiful Escenas poeticas and Escenas romanticas, two suites which reflect Granados's interest in the music of Grieg, Schumann, and Liszt, yet are filled with the great Spanish composer's original modulations and characteristic melodic writing. Together, the four suites offer performing artists, teachers, students, and music lovers a rich treasury of the finest and most enduring of Granados's compositions for the piano.

Описание: Justly celebrated for his orchestral music, Antonin Dvo ak was also a gifted composer of keyboard works. This original collection features a variety of his richly Romantic piano pieces, from minuets to mazurkas to waltzes. Suitable for intermediate-level pianists, these selections include the Czech composer's beloved Scottish Dances, Op. 41, and Slavonic Dances, Opp. 46 and 72. Before the publication of his Slavonic Dances, Dvo ak was a relative unknown in the music world. Johannes Brahms introduced Dvo ak to his own publisher, and the success of Dvo ak's folksong-inspired Moravian Duets encouraged the composer to attempt another series with a dance-like character. Drawing upon the characteristic rhythms of Slavonic folk music, Dvo ak created original melodies that secured his enduring fame. This compilation of his dance music for solo piano will enchant performers and listeners alike."
