Описание: The unusual harmonies and forms in the music of Frederick Delius (1862-1934) set the English composer's work apart from the main currents of musical influence. One of the most important figures in the revival of English music at the turn of the twentieth century, Delius composed original pastoral pieces. His distinctive compositions combine psychological and pictorial elements to offer studies of the effect of nature on the soul. This edition provides music lovers with the opportunity to study and enjoy the scores of six of Delilus' most popular orchestral works. His brilliant stylizations of folk rhythms are evident in the title piece as well as in A Song of the High Hills and A Dance Rhapsody. Other works include In a Summer Garden, Summer Night on the River, and the well-known On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring. All of these pieces were reproduced from authoritative early editions.
Norway's most celebrated composer, Edvard Grieg (1843-1907) is famed for the colorfully nationalistic flavor of his music and for its charming re-creation of the melodic and rhythmic elements of his native country's folk music. This compilation of orchestral works, testifying to the enduring appeal of Grieg's art, will delight all lovers of this very special repertoire. For the most part, Grieg's orchestral works consist of his orchestrations of pieces originally composed either for voice and piano or for solo piano--such as the Holberg Suite ("From Holberg's Time: Suite in Olden Style"), Op. 40, which he wrote as a piano piece in 1884, then scored for strings. Other works in this volume include Two Elegiac Melodies, Op. 34; Old Norwegian Romance with Variations, Op. 51; Two Melodies, Op. 53; Four Lyric Pieces, from Op. 54; and Two Lyric Pieces, from Op. 68. Reproduced from authoritative C. F. Peters editions, this collection is a unique addition to any library of fine scores.
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.
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.
"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: Schoenberg's theory of "composition with twelve tones" dominated international composition through most of the 20th century -- and this edition collects the first steps of the composer's revolution. "Pelleas und Melisande" (1902) reveals Schoenberg's expanding chromatic language while "Five Orchestral Pieces" renounces motivic connections as well as tonality.
Описание: Gustav Mahler spent 14 years exploring the musical potential of German folk poetry, and this volume comprises some of his most significant work. It features authoritative editions of his settings of five poems by Friedrich R ckert, known as the R ckert Lieder "Blicke mir nicht in die Lieder" (Look not, love, on my work unended); "Ich atmet einen linden Duft" (I breathed the breath of blossoms red); "Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen" (O garish world, long since thou hast lost me); "Um Mitternacht" (At midnight hour); and "Liebst du um Schonheit" (Lovst thou but beauty).

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.
