4. Gymnopédies, Gnossiennes and Other Works for Piano (Dover Music for Piano)

Author: by Erik Satie
Published at: Dover Publications (June 1, 1989)
ISBN: 978-0486259789

View on Amazon

In his piano works especially, Erik Satie (18661925) was a witty musical caricaturist. The eccentric French composer loved to satirize academic rules in general and the impressionistic titles of Debussy’s compositions in particular, giving his own works such surrealistic names as Pieces in Pear Form and Dried Embryos, and annotating them with equally bizarre musical directions: “Tres ‘neuf heures du matin” (Very “nine in the morning”), “Corpulentus” (Corpulent), and so on.

His comic spirit is equally embodied in the music itself, as this delightful selection of seventeen piano works amply proves. They are as spare, lively, and capricious as they are hauntingly melodic. In addition to the well-known Gymnopdies and Gnossiennes, the pieces reproduced here include Sarabandes, Pices froides, Poudre d’or, En habit de cheval, Morceaux en forme de poire, Embryons desschs, Aperus dsagreables, Descriptions automatiques, and more.

This volume, the largest collection of Satie’s piano works yet published, has been reprinted on fine-quality paper from authoritative original editions, and sturdily bound to provide you a lifetime of study and enjoyment. In its pages are some of the most original and appealing achievements of a turbulent era in music, compositions that influenced such modern masters as Ravel, Milhaud, and Poulenc.

Although best known as the sister of Felix Mendelssohn, Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel (1805-47) was a virtuoso pianist and a composer of considerable merit in her own right. Her oeuvre of more than 400 compositions remained largely unknown for more than a century after her untimely death, and her newly rediscovered reputation as a composer rests chiefly with her piano music.

This volume is the first American publication of her important early works. Reproduced directly from rare first editions, its contents include Vier Lieder fr das Pianoforte, Op.2, Op.6, and Op. 8, in addition to two selections from Six Mlodies pour le Piano, Op.4 and Op.5.Introduction.

10. Schumann on Music: A Selection from the Writings (Dover Books on Music)

Author: by Robert Schumann
Published at: Dover Publications; Annotated edition (January 1, 1988)
ISBN: 978-0486257488

View on Amazon

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.
