Описание: Ambitious in scale, highly original in both content and design, these popular works exhibit Brahms's mastery of the concerto and his role as heir to the classical tradition of Mozart and Beethoven. Both works are marked by drama, elegance, rich orchestral textures, and virtuoso writing for the soloist. Concerto No. 1 in D Minor, Op. 15, is a mighty work, featuring a theatrically powerful first movement, a tranquil adagio, and a spirited finale. Concerto No. 2 in B-flat Major, Op. 83, is a majestic piece that includes a notable departure from the classical tradition: the addition of a scherzo between the opening movement and the andante. Both works appear here in authoritative two-piano editions, featuring the solo part together with an orchestral reduction for second piano, the standard format for learning and practice. In addition, this volume offers pianists the convenience and economy of two major concertos in a single edition.

Reprint of the Breitkopf & Hartel, Leipzig, ca. 1926–27 edition.
Throughout much of his long, highly productive career, Camille Saint-Sa ns (1835-1921) occupied a dominant position in French music. Admired for his masterly command of orchestration and high standards of form, style, and workmanship, Saint-Sa ns wrote for the piano in an elegant, virtuoso style. In this volume, pianists and music lovers will find authoritative full-score editions of two of the composer's most popular piano concertos, works frequently performed since their premieres, and often recorded to this day: Piano Concerto No. 2 in G Minor, Op. 22, and Piano Concerto No. 4 in C Minor, Op. 44. In the tradition of the great composer/pianists of his time, Saint-Sa ns was the soloist for the premieres of both works in Paris: of No. 2 in 1868, and of No. 4 in 1875. The scores of these concert favorites have been reprinted from the authoritative editions published by Durand et Cie, Paris.

Two of the great nineteenth-century Romantics, Robert Schumann and Edvard Grieg, each composed only one piano concerto. These world-famous works are cornerstones of the concerto literature and considered among the most popular and accessible piano concertos in the repertory. Both works are paired in this finely made, inexpensive two-piano edition. This side-by-side presentation clarifies the close relationship between the two works. In his concerto, completed in 1868, Grieg gave Schumann the ultimate tribute, patterning his music on the Schumann concerto completed two decades earlier. Both are in A Minor. Both introduce the soloist immediately, in a dazzling outburst from top to bottom of the keyboard. Principal themes are unusually alike, as are episodes of tender simplicity and dramatic intensity. Both works are presented here in authoritative two piano playing editions. This classic format for two keyboards is the universal standard for students and professionals alike, for learning and rehearsing all piano concertos. It gives the pianist the most accessible form and practical means to prepare a work for performance. Dover adds to this practicality the convenience and economy of two major concertos within a single volume.
This volume contains two of Beethoven's most loved and widely performed piano concertos, printed in the traditional format for two pianos: Piano I is the solo part; Piano II, a piano reduction of the orchestral score. Concerto No. 4 in G Major, Op. 58, composed in 1805-06, is one of the great masterpieces of the form, perfectly designed, profoundly poetic. From its striking opening for the solo instrument -- a true innovation for the concerto concept -- through the slow movement's literal conversation between solo and orchestra, the work broke new ground as it reshaped the form. The powerful Concerto No. 5 in E-flat Major, Op. 73, called the Emperor for its grandeur, was Beethoven's last piano concerto. Composed in 1809, when the composer was 39, it is counted among the most popular concertos in the repertoire. Grove considers it one of the strongest works conceived by Beethoven, and by far the most symphonic, from the thunderous cadential celebration of the very first bars to the brilliant rondo-finale. Both works are presented here in authoritative two-piano playing editions edited by Franz Kullak, one of the nineteenth century's leading piano editors and teachers of pianists. His classic format for two keyboards is the universal standard, for students and professionals alike, for learning and rehearsing all piano concertos. It gives the pianist the most accessible form and practical means to prepare a work for performance. To this practicality, Dover adds the convenience and economy of joining two major concertos within a single volume.
This authoritative edition continues Dover's series of great piano concertos with orchestral reduction for second piano -- the universal standard, for students and professionals alike, for learning and rehearsing all concertos. Together for the first time are two of the most performed and recorded concertos of all time: the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1 in G-flat Minor, Op. 23, and the Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2 in C Minor, Op. 18. Both of these great Russian works have achieved unrivaled worldwide popularity and are absolute musts in the repertoire of every serious pianist. The Tchaikovsky concerto combines a virtuoso piano part with brilliant orchestral scoring. The Rachmaninoff concerto is universally admired for the dark, brooding opening, enormously popular themes, and passionate, lyrical final movement. Every pianist and serious piano student will want this attractive and modestly priced edition.
Although the moods may vary throughout these evocative works, the elegance and subtly shifting energies of their musical language could only be those of Maurice Ravel. To study them in this full-score edition is to become more fully aware not only of his great originality but also of the constant striving for perfection of form and style that prompted Stravinsky to compare him admiringly to "the most perfect of Swiss watchmakers." The Rapsodie Espagnole was Ravel's first entirely orchestral composition. A work whose exotic fantasy and subtle craftsmanship clearly express Ravel's distinctive musical personality, it was first performed publicly at the Th tre du Ch let in Paris in 1908, confirming the young composer's reputation as an orchestral poet of scintillating originality. In 1911 Ravel re-created for orchestra his highly successful composition for two pianos, the Mother Goose Suite, a truly magical work whose moods range from haunting desolation to tender exaltation. Similarly, Ravel recast his brilliant 1911 piano composition Valses Nobles et Sentimentales as an orchestral score in 1912 (a ballet based on its premiere that year in Paris) and arranged his evocative 1899 piano work Pavane for a Dead Princess for orchestra in 1910. The rich orchestral settings of all four works have made them popular favorites on concert stages worldwide. This superbly prepared edition brings together in one volume authoritative full scores of these four works, reprinted from original French editions.
