Written in 1869 and revised up to 1880, the Romeo and Juliet Overture was Tchaikovsky's first acknowledged masterpiece and today remains among the most popular orchestral compositions ever written. Composed when Tchaikovsky was 29, the Overture, according to Grove's Dictionary, was "carried out with such ardent conviction that the work seems to glow and throb with youthful passion and tenderness." By comparison, his brilliantly scored Capriccio Italien is a spirited evocation of Mediterranean life and scenery, animated and full of vitality. A work, says Grove's, "of unshadowed gaiety and abounding in striking effects." Written in 1880, when Tchaikovsky's position in the music world was fairly well established in Russia, the piece brought him to the brink of international fame and recognition. Permeated with imagination and a wealth of melodic inspiration, these compositions continue to evoke an enthusiastic response from musicians and listeners alike. Students, teachers, and music lovers everywhere will be delighted with this convenient, one-volume edition of both scores, reprinted from an authoritative Russian edition of Tchaikovsky's works. The original Russian footnotes have been specially translated into English for this edition.
Johannes Brahms was one of music's greatest masters of classical forms, a composer whose individuality expanded and enriched those forms, giving them new variety of mood and a freshness of melodic invention. In writing for the orchestra, Brahms's independent approach brought unusual dramatic power and intensity to his compositions. Those qualities are strikingly evident in three of the most popular and most frequently performed works in the orchestral repertoire, reproduced here in full score: Academic Festival Overture, Tragic Overture, and Variations on a Theme by Joseph Haydn. This volume reprints, complete and unabridged, the scores of all three orchestral works from the authoritative Breitkopf & Hдrtel edition, still considered the standard source for the music of Brahms. Included is a new English translation of the Editor's Commentary, which also appears in the original German. The Academic Festival Overture, built upon German student songs, is, according to Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians, a very successful and individual piиce de circonstance, while the Tragic Overture is described as a gloomy and impressive movement, full of that peculiar sense of foreboding that so many composers ... have associated with the key of D minor. Variations on a Theme by Joseph Haydn is renowned for its spontaneity, melodic invention, and delightfully varied orchestral coloring. Students, composers, and musicologists will find the handy, inexpensive volume of Brahms's great orchestral favorites a valuable addition to their music libraries and an indispensable reference.

Описание: A prolific writer of theatrical music whose works ranged from incidental music for operettas to full operas, Franz von Supp (1819-95) is perhaps best known as the composer of the overture from which this collection takes its name. According to Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians, "Supp is the earliest Viennese composer of musical farces whose works still survive as viable stage scores (and popular overtures) . . . . His light, fluent style includes the ability to vary a phrase length or melodic and rhythmic figure in a personal and immediately effective way." In addition to the title piece ― originally arranged for no less than 59 different combinations of instruments ― this compilation includes the Vienna Jubilee Overture and the overtures to three of the composer's most popular works: Morning, Noon and Night in Vienna; Beautiful Galatea; and Light Cavalry. Reprinted from authoritative editions and offered in a convenient single-volume format, these full scores will delight students, musicians, and admirers of the celebrated Austrian composer.
