3. Complete Lyric Pieces for Piano (Dover Music for Piano)

Author: by Edvard Grieg
Published at: Dover Publications; Dover Publications edition (January 1, 1990)
ISBN: 978-0486261768

View on Amazon

Between 1867 and 1901, Edvard Grieg (18431907) wrote ten sets of little mood pictures for piano that display his great musical gifts at their lyrical best. Charming works of elegant simplicity and warmth, they have become cornerstones of the piano repertoire, favorites of both amateur and professional musicians and their audiences.

This authoritative edition presents all 66 of these piano jewels in one finely made yet inexpensive volume. Although technically uncomplicated and reasonably easy to master, the Lyric Pieces evoke with startling freshness a wide emotional range, often bringing into play the varied moods and idioms of Norwegian folk music, an evergreen source of Grieg’s inspiration.

They vary in mood from the serene sadness of “Berceuse” and the nostalgic yearning of “To Spring” to the fanciful “Elves’ Dance” and the joyful “Wedding Day at Troldhaugen.”In many passages, the music exhibits harmonies that were novel for the time harmonies recognizably late-romantic in style, but clearly anticipating the impressionism of Debussy, Ravel, and others.

4. Complete Preludes and Etudes-Tableaux (Dover Music for Piano)

Author: by Serge Rachmaninoff
Published at: Dover Publications (July 1, 1988)
ISBN: 978-0486256962

View on Amazon

The 24 preludes and 17 etudes-tableaux of Serge Rachmaninoff include what are possibly his finest compositions for solo piano. Each of these masterly works is included in this complete collection, reproduced from recent, authoritative Russian editions. They include: Prelude, Op.3, No. 2; Ten Preludes, Op.

23; Thirteen Preludes, Op. 32; Eight Etudes-tableaux, Op. 33; Nine Etudes-tableaux, Op.39. Among these are the enormously popular C-sharp minor prelude, Op.3, No. 2; the G-minor prelude, Op.23, No. 5; and the B-minor prelude, Op.32, No. 10 classics that have made Rachmaninoff one of the most performed and recorded modern composers.

Each of these works reflects Rachmaninoff’s emotional intensity, his thrilling gifts as a melodist and his ability to crystallize perfectly a particular mood or sentiment. In their sonorous textures and rich embellishment, they reflect as well his sovereign command of keyboard technique and his spectacular gifts as a pianist (he was one of the very greatest pianists of the 20th century).
