"One of the most delightful facets of his particular talent is seen in the Fantasies. . . . These Rococo miniatures have a lively opening section with light and clear-textured writing, a brief slow section in homophonic style, and then a return to the initial section." -- Gillespie, Five Centuries of Keyboard Music. Widely regarded as one of the most important German composers of the early and middle eighteenth century, Telemann (1681-1767) was a highly skilled contrapuntist with excellent technical mastery and a fluent command of melody. He was also extremely prolific. According to Handel, he could write a motet in eight parts as easily as anyone else could write a letter. Today, the keyboard works of this early master are being studied, played, and recorded more than ever before. The Fantasias (published 1732-33) are of particular historic interest, for along with their polish, grace, and fluidity, the beginnings of the sonata form are revealed in Telemann's technique of bringing together different motifs. Now all 36 of these graceful, appealing compositions are available in this authoritative edition, ready to challenge and delight keyboard artists with a wealth of freshness, wit, and lighthearted style galant.
This volume brings together a wide selection of Bach's keyboard compositions, including many pieces difficult to find in other editions. Included are several well-known works: the important harpsichord toccatas, the Capriccio on the Departure of His Most Beloved Brother, the Aria Variata alla Maniera Italiana, and the Six Little Preludes, as well as many lesser-known but significant pieces -- fugues, sonatas, and other works -- over 40 in all. Reprinted from the authoritative Breitkopf and H rtel edition, the music in this inexpensive yet well-made volume offers pianists a rich selection of interesting works stamped with the melodic and rhythmic invention and harmonic audacity characteristic of Bach.
Описание: Uniquely complex in both form and structure, this masterpiece of counterpoint is regarded as a pinnacle of Western music. This solo keyboard edition was edited by Carl Czerny, a student of Beethoven and teacher of Liszt, who wrote hundreds of piano etudes that remain staples of modern piano training today.
Описание: This volume contains two of Beethoven's most unusual, highly innovative and original works: the Concerto in C Major, Op. 56, for piano, violin, cello and orchestra; and the Fantasia in C Minor, Op. 80, for piano, chorus and orchestra. To this day, the Triple Concerto remains part of a rare breed in the literature--a fascinating symphonic framework of interaction between the classical orchestra and a trio of intimately interdependent soloists. The work remains a favorite vehicle of the great Beethoven specialists, with numerous recordings by legendary performers. The Choral Fantasy is a rarity in the Beethoven canon of ensemble music, uniting the virtuoso display of a semi-improvisational solo piano with the vocal and instrumental richness of chorus and orchestra. Said to have been composed under great time pressure, the Fantasy concludes with an extensive choral setting of a text by an unknown poet: Schmeichelnd hold und lieblich klingen (Flatteringly lovely and fair are the sounds of our life's harmonies...Accept gladly the gifts of beautiful art...). Reprinted from the authoritative Breitkopf & Hдrtel editions, this volume offers musicians and music lovers an inexpensive, high-quality full score of two exceptional works.

Описание: Beginning with works by Frescobaldi, Scarlatti, Giambattista, and Handel, this collection features several compositions by the fugue's most famous expositor, Johann Sebastian Bach, including many pieces from "The" "Well-Tempered Clavier." Contributions from latter-day composers include works by Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Robert and Clara Schumann, Brahms, and Saint-Saens.
Bach's life was a searching for all that was best in his art to refine it in the fire of his genius. -- Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians Bach's mastery of rhythm and harmony, inventiveness, and genius for composition produced some of the richest and most beautiful music of all time. Those qualities are strikingly evident in his early concerti, which are among the most recorded and performed works in the baroque repertoire. This easy-to-read volume reprints, complete and unabridged, the master's seven complete concerti for solo keyboard and orchestra from the renowned Bach-Gesellschaft edition, still considered the primary source for Bach's music. Composed in Leipzig (c. 1735), these elegant works are almost completely based on earlier extant or lost concerti by Bach for violin and wind instruments. The concerti reproduced here in full score include Concerto in D Minor (BWV1052), Concerto in E Major (BWV 1053), Concerto in D Major (BWV 1054), Concerto in A Major (BWV 1055), Concerto in F Minor (BWV 1056), Concerto in F Major (BWV 1057), and Concerto in G Minor (BWV 1058). Musicians, students, and Bach devotees will applaud this clearly printed, wonderfully affordable playing edition of classic compositions by the supreme master of the baroque.
