Описание: Intermediate and experienced organists will prize this appealing original collection of organ works in slow tempo. Its forty-three adagios range from the Baroque era to modern times, offering a tremendous variety of pieces for public and private performance. Highlights include works by such celebrated composers for organ as Johann Sebastian Bach (-Hark A Voice Saith, All Are Mortal, - BWV 643), Alexandre Guilmant (Meditation and Adagio, from Sonata No. 6, Op. 86), Louis Vierne (Prelude Funebre, Op. 4), and Charles-Marie Widor (Adagio from Symphonie No. 5, Op. 42-1). Other pieces include the popular Largo from Handel's 1738 opera, Xerxes; Liszt's tribute to his friend, -At the Grave of Richard Wagner-; and pieces by Brahms, Couperin, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Schumann, Saint-Saens, and others. Editor Rollin Smith provides notes on the music, with background information on each piece.
Описание: Like his predecessor Chopin, Debussy discovered new possibilities and refinements in the art of playing and composing for the piano. His compositions and transcriptions for piano four hands are among his most inventive and interesting works. This volume contains Marche Ecossaise, written specifically for piano four hands, and the composer's transcription for four hands of LaMer. These works display both the brilliant pianism at the heart of Debussy's musical imagery and the composer's affinity for the unexpected -- a quality that allowed many of his compositions to unfold like highly sophisticated improvisations. Reprinted here from authoritative French editions, they will challenge and delight pianists with their unique qualities.
"It may be in fact that I have taken on a task that is too much for me: there is no precedent, so I am obliged to invent new forms." -- Claude Debussy. Unquestionably one of the most influential of modern composers, Claude Debussy (1862-1918) overturned traditional concepts of form, harmony, and coloring in creating a body of music characterized by innovation, individuality of style, and perfection of workmanship. Among his most popular, most performed, most recorded works are the three compositions reprinted in this volume: the revolutionary Prelude a l'apres-midi d'une faune, which, in a sense, "awakened" modern music; the exquisite Nocturnes, shimmering models of delicate impressionism; and La Mer, complex, suggestive, a masterpiece of orchestral texture. This Dover volume presents the complete scores of all three works -- reproduced from early French editions -- in one convenient source. Musicians and music lovers will appreciate this inexpensive edition of a trio of orchestral favorites: pieces that mark not only key points in the composer's personal progress but also in the progress of modern music as well.
Описание: "No composer in musical history has taught the pianist more new and permanently valuable things," says "Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians," describing Impressionist Claude Debussy. This new compilation of the composer's most colorfully atmospheric works attests to his extraordinary powers of invention and to his reassessment of keyboard color and technique. Twenty selections range from such fanciful pieces as the impudent "Golligwogg's cakewalk" and the misty "Sunken Cathedral" to the brilliant "Fireworks." A rich compilation of works by France's most innovative and influential composer, this convenient and modestly priced volume will be welcomed by pianists, students, teachers, and music lovers. Dover original compilation of works from authoritative editions.

These works range widely in mood, displaying both the brilliant pianism at the heart of Debussy's musical imagery and the composer's affinity for the unexpected.

This book is a firsthand report of a great composer's intentions in regard to the performance of his music. These intentions have been digested and interpreted for us by the composer's friend Robert Schmitz (1889-1949), who was himself a distinguished pianist, an articulate musician, and a well-known teacher. The product is an authoritative commentary on the entire body of Debussy's work for piano solo. Written for both performers and listeners, the book's purpose is to increase enjoyment of and insight into these works. The book's shorter opening section comprises notes on many general aspects of the composer's life and work; a biographical sketch; a discussion of Debussy's place in relation to the concepts of impressionism and romanticism; his use of classical forms, tonality and modality, melody, counterpoint, etc. Section two, the heart of the book, examines in detail the whole of Debussy's music for solo piano, two hands. Seventy-one pieces in all are included: The Arabesques, the Suite Bergmasque, the Estampes, Images, Children's Corner, Pr ludes and tudes. Each in its chronological place, the pieces are first described as a whole as to mood, source of programmatic inspiration, structure, tonality, and other characteristics. Then follows specific suggestions dealing with technical and expressive problems of particular measures and phrases. The book is not meant as a substitute for Debussy's piano works; on the contrary, it will cause both listeners and performers to turn to this superb corpus of music with new interest and insight. "Complete, thorough, authoritative and important." -- San Francisco Chronicle. "It is a thoughtful and mature reference book and though I am at variance with certain of its premises and conclusions, there is much to provoke the intelligent music lover and the inquiring musician." -- Abram Chasins, The New York Times. "There is no doubt that he had closely identified himself with the great French composer, and his love and belief in the music shine through every page of this book." -- H. C. Schonbert, The Saturday Review.
