Описание: Characterized by editor Sara Davis Buechner as "elegant Romantic salon music of the Russian school, subtly genteel, with early impressionistic shadings," the piano music of Anton Arensky formed the foundation of works by Rachmaninoff and Scriabin. Both of the latter-day composers were Arensky's pupils, and their teacher's music contains the seeds of Rachmaninoff's idiomatic pianistic style and Scriabin's impressionistic array of musical color. This collection of short works for solo piano contains the title suite as well as Six Canonic Pieces, op. 1; Three Esquisses, op. 24; Six Essais sur les Rhythmes Oubilees, op. 28, Four Etudes, op. 41, Six Caprices, op. 43; and Scherzo, op. 8. The star of the collection is the beautiful and gracious set of pieces titled Pres de la Mer, op. 52. Rarely printed in its entirety, the suite offers a sensitive and opulent evocation of the seaside.
Описание: Here are two suites Debussy composed specifically for piano four hands, Petite Suite and Six Epigraphes Antiques, plus Ravel's arrangement for four hands of Debussy's Prelude a l'Apres-midi d'un Faune and a piano four hands version of Prelude, Cortege and Air de Danse from L'Enfant Prodigue. 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. Reprinted from authoritative French editions, these works display innovative musical qualities that will both delight and challenge pianists.
Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg (1843-1907) was a preeminent composer of music for the piano, in which he brilliantly utilized Norwegian folk music to create compositions remarkable for their originality, impressionistic harmonies, and melodic richness. This volume presents the best of Grieg's music for piano four hands in a convenient, inexpensive edition. Included are Grieg's own arrangements of his enormously popular Peer Gynt Suite Nos. 1 and 2 (with such favorites as Morning Mood and In the Hall of the Mountain King); the four Norwegian Dances, Op. 35, displaying strong folk-music influence; the elegant and urbane Waltz-Caprices, Op. 37; and the exuberant Wedding Day at Troldhaugen, Op. 65, No. 6, a four-hand arrangement of one of Grieg's best-loved Lyric Pieces. Pianists, students, and performers of four-hand music will want to have this inexpensive treasury of repertoire favorites, reproduced from the authoritative C. F. Peters edition.
"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.
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.
