With their formal and stylistic perfection, they are among the most valuable of the late-Romantic additions to piano repertoire. Included in this 128-page edition are 30 pieces by Brahms, preceded by a helpful introduction which contains definitions of the ballade, rhapsody, capriccio and intermezzo.

A deeply personal, intimate conversation about music and writing between the internationally acclaimed, best-selling author and the former conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. In Absolutely on Music, internationally Haruki Murakami sits down with his friend Seiji Ozawa, the revered former conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, for a series of conversations on their shared passion: music.

Over the course of two years, Murakami and Ozawa discuss everything from Brahms to Beethoven, from Leonard Bernstein to Glenn Gould, from Bartk to Mahler, and from pop-up orchestras to opera. They listen to and dissect recordings of some of their favorite performances, and Murakami questions Ozawa about his career conducting orchestras around the world.

Culminating in Murakami’s ten-day visit to the banks of Lake Geneva to observe Ozawa’s retreat for young musicians, the book is interspersed with ruminations on record collecting, jazz clubs, orchestra halls, film scores, and much more. A deep reflection on the essential nature of both music and writing, Absolutely on Music is an unprecedented glimpse into the minds of two maestros.

Author: by Robert Schumann

ISBN: 978-0486257488

Schumann’s genius as a composer is well known; perhaps less well known is the fact that he was also a gifted music critic who wrote hundreds of perceptive essays, articles, and reviews for the Neue Zeitschrift fur Msik, the influential music journal he founded in 1834.

The present work, translated and edited by noted critic Henry Pleasants, contains 61 of the most important critical pieces Schumann wrote for Neue Zeitschrift between 1834 and 1844. The articles are arranged in chronological order, with ample annotation, demonstrating not only Schumann’s development as a writer and critic but also the evolution of music in Europe during a decisive decade.

In addition to such major set pieces as “Florestan’s Shrovetide Oration,” the essays on Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique and Schubert’s Symphony in C Major, and the imaginative and literate “The Editor’s Ball,” this volume offers discerning observations on Mendelssohn, Chopin, Beethoven, Liszt, Cherubini, and other giants.

11. Brahms: Complete Sonatas and Variations for Solo Piano

Author: by Johannes Brahms
Published at: Dover Publications (June 1, 1971)
ISBN: 978-0486226507

View on Amazon

The most ambitious in scale of Brahms’s pieces for piano solo, the sonatas and variations, are contained complete within this volume: the three beautifully lyrical Sonatas in C Major, F-sharp Minor and F Minor, and the five sets of Variations: on a theme by Schumann, F-sharp Minor; on an Original Theme, D Major; on a Hungarian Song, D Major; Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel, B-flat Major; and Variations on a Theme by Paganini, A Minor.

The music is reproduced directly from the definitive Vienna Gesellschaft der Musik-freunde edition, edited by its renowned musicologist, Eusebius Mandyczewski, who made his revisions from original sources, often Brahms’s own manuscripts. For this Dover edition, the Editor’s Preface and the Table of Contents have been translated into English.

Noteheads have been reproduced in a size large enough to be read easily as the keyboard. Margins and spaces between staves are generous, permitting insertion of written notes, analysis, fingerings, running measure numbers, etc. This edition will be welcomed, not only by the classical pianist, but by all who will find it highly practical and convenient for instruction, study, reference, enjoyment, and virtually any other purpose.

The Breitkopf & Hrtel edition of the complete works of Brahms (Johannes Brahms: Smtliche Werke; Ausgabe der Gesellschaft der Musikfrunde in Wien), prepared in the 1920s, is still considered the standard source for the music of Brahms. It is the music of Brahms as the composer himself conceived it, without any editor’s additional markings of dynamic change, tempo variation, slurrings, phrasings, etc.

As the pure, authentic text for the music of Brahms, the edition is unlikely ever to be superseded. This volume is an unabridged republication of Volume 7 of the Complete Works. It contains the Sextets Opp. 18 and 36 (2 violins, 2 violas, 2 cello); the Quintets Opp.

88 and 111 (2 violins, 2 violas, cello); the three Quartets Opp.51, No.1, 51 No. 2, and 67 (2 violins, viola, cello); and the Quintet for Clarinet, Op. 115 (2 violins, clarinet or viola viola, cello). Hans Gal, the editor for this and many of the other volumes in the series, states in a short preface the sources for the texts of the eight compositions.
