Unlike the vast majority of classical music for organ which requires both manual and pedal dexterity this unique collection of 33 works is devoted solely to organ music originally written on two staves and intended for manuals alone. Some was conceived for the 19th-century free-reed instrument, for the harmonium or reed organ, for performance in the home, as well as for organists of small churches who may not have had sufficient technique to perform with their feet as well as their hands.

This unique volume consists almost exclusively of rare, out-of-print editions selected from the private library of author-performer Rollin Smith. Contents include Berlioz’s Rustic Serenade to the Madonna, Saint-Sans’ Barcarolle and Prayer, Three Musical Sketches by Bizet, Liszt’s The Shepherds at the Manger: In dulci jubilo, plus organ classics by Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner, Franck, Reger, and other great composers, including movements from organ sonatas by Mendelssohn and Widor’s Third Symphony for Organ and Orchestra, and the complete Third Sonata by Guilmant.


4. Carmen in Full Score (Dover Music Scores)

When he first heard Carmen, Tchaikovsky enthusiastically predicted it would become the world’s most popular opera. Wagner, too, was an admirer of this dramatic masterpiece, and Brahms claimed to have seen it 29 times. At its premiere in Paris in 1873, however, Carmen did not succeed with the public or the critics.

Indeed, it created a scandal. But in time, as Tchaikovsky foresaw, it would become the favorite opera of audiences worldwide. And in over a century Carmen has never relinquished its position as one of the most performed and recorded operas in the repertoire.

Conceived and composed as an opra comique (a genre it completely transformed), Carmen was converted after Bizet’s tragic early death to grand opera with the addition of recitatives composed by Ernest Guiraud. This superbly produced full-score edition replicates this grand-opera version, the one most commonly produced on operatic stages today.

Accustomed to the light and sentimental subjects and conventions of opra comique, Bizet’s public and critics were at first horrified by Carmen’s lurid plot and characters. Critics pronounced its story, dominated by sexual passion and jealousy, too “obscene” for the stage, called for the mezzo-soprano portraying Carmen to be hauled into court, and disparaged the music as unoriginal and undramatic.

Incredible as it seems today, Bizet’s opera Carmen was coolly received at its 1875 premiere at the Paris Opra-Comique; critics condemned its subject matter as lurid and its music as overly Wagnerian.

The compilation of popular highlights in the present edition offers two suites from the opera in full score: Suite No. 1 features the Prlude, Aragonaise, Intermezzo, Sguedille, Les Dragons d’Alcala, and Les Toradors; Suite No. 2 includes the Marche des Contrebandiers, Habanera, Nocturne, Chanson du Torador, La Garde Montante, and Danse Bohme.

Their romantic triangle forms the heart of this 1863 opera, Les Pcheurs de Perles (The Pearl Fishers), in which the composer of Carmen, the world’s most popular opera, made his first mark. Set in ancient Ceylon, this enchanting tale of friendship, love, and betrayal has been performed in opera houses around the world.

The famous baritone/tenor duet in the second act is among the most recorded of opera highlights, and a copy of the full score is essential for conductors as well as for students of composition and orchestration. This large-format version of Bizet’s three-act opera offers musicians an affordable alternative to high-priced, hard-to-find editions.
