About this product
- DescriptionA great musical tradition flourished in the late 19th- and early-20th-century Russia, nurturing such rewned composers as Mussorgsky, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaniv, and Prokofiev. Unfortunately, many superb compositions by lesser Russian composers have been eclipsed by the works of these giants.In this volume, University of Kentucky musicologist Dmitry Feofav presents eleven overlooked masterpieces important Russian pia works of the late 18th to 20th centuries virtually ubtainable elsewhere. Here is Mikhail Glinka's <i>Prayer, </i> a rare program piece by the founder of Russian opera, the first composer whose music was performed in the West; German-born Johann Hassler's <i>Sonata-Fantasie, </i> Op. 4, which anticipates Beethoven in structure; and Sergey Liapuv's <i>Transcendental Etude, </i> Op. 11, No. 10, a stunning tour de force of pia technique. Also included in this impressive collection: Balakirev: <i>Reverie</i>Glazuv: <i>Prelude and Fugue in D Mir, </i> Op. 62Griboyedov: <i>Two Waltzes</i>Kalinnikov: <i>Nocturne in F-Sharp Mir</i>Liadov: <i>Prelude, </i> Op. 11, No.1<i>Medtner: Sonata in G Mir, </i> Op. 22Schlozer: <i>Etude in A-flat, </i> Op. 1, No. 2Taneyev: <i>Prelude and Fugue, </i> Op. 29All scores are authoritative, reprinted from rare Russian texts, many of which are w out of print with new translations of performance instructions. Short biographies of each composer and background information on each piece round out this fine, modestly priced performance and study edition sure to appeal to pianists, students, music historians, and music lovers everywhere.
