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). A pair of songs from Des Knaben Wunderhorn (The Youth's Miraculous Horn) are also featured: "Revelge" (The dead drummer) and "Der Tamboursg'sell" (The drummer-boy).
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.

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.
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.

Here in one volume are all of Mendelssohn's major orchestral works in full score: the complete Midsummer Night's Dream -- Overture and Incidental Music, plus all the play cues and all the melodramas -- more than has ever been recorded; The Hebrides Overture, or Fingal's Cave, Op. 26; its pendant, the Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage Overture, Op. 27; Symphony No. 3 in A (Scottish), Op. 56; and Symphony No. 4 in A (Italian), Op. 90. These are the most performed orchestral works and are usually considered Mendelssohn's finest. This sturdy edition has been reproduced from selected volumes of the Breitkopt & Hдrtel Complete Works edition, edited by Julius Rietz. Noteheads are large and clear, and wide margins and ample staves offer space for written notes, analysis, and more.
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: 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.
