This classic method for beginners provides a brief history of the instrument, an explanation of organ construction, a discussion of the various stops and their management, a section devoted to practical study, and several pieces.
This original collection features a tremendous variety of pieces from the fugue's heyday in the Baroque period as well as other eras, each created by a master of the genre.
A major influence on Bach—who once walked 200 miles to hear him perform—Buxtehude is among the great names in organ music and the study of counterpoint. Born five decades after Heinrich Schütz, the "father of German musicians," and a little less than half a century before Bach, he bridged the era between the founder of Protestant Baroque music and its greatest master. This collection of church chorales attests to Buxtehude's reputation as an outstanding composer of sacred vocal music. For his texts, the composer drew upon scripture as well as church hymns and contemporary or medieval sacred poetry. Albert Schweitzer, in his famous biography of Bach, observed that Buxtehude's chorale preludes are "chorale fantasias of the most varied kinds, from the simplest to the most ingenious. In the simple ones the melody goes its way quietly, just embellished here and there with a few ornaments, and accompanied by interesting and always ingenious harmonies. . . . In the large chorale preludes, Buxtehude tears the melody in pieces, throws the fragments into the flood of a brilliant, animated fantasia." Authoritative and modestly priced, this treasury of Buxtehude's works offers organists a source of endless satisfaction and inspiration.
The three piano concertos contained in this volume were all composed in 1785, when Mozart was 29. High points of one of the most amazingly productive and creatively brilliant periods in the composer's life, yet they are masterworks of very different character: No. 20 (K466 in D Minor), a work of intensity, passion, and spiritual conflict; No. 21 (K467 in C Major), with its luminous, world-famous "Andante, " a work of calm and majesty; and No. 22 (K482 in E-flat Major), music of grace and maturity, said to have "realized the century's ideal whilst yet casting aside the shackles of fashion." These three works are presented here in authoritative two-piano playing editions edited by Franz Kullak and Hans Bischoff, two of the nineteenth century's leading piano editors and teachers of pianists. Their classic format for two keyboards is the universal standard, for students and professionals alike, for learning and rehearsing all piano concertos. It gives the pianist the most accessible form and practical means to prepare a work for performance. To this practicality Dover adds the convenience and economy of compiling three major concertos within a single volume.
Treasury of works by great German organ composer: "Variation & Fugue on 'God Save the King'"; "Fantasy and Fugue," Op. 29; "Fantasy and Fugue on the name BACH" and more. Authoritative editions.
Major compositions from period 1830-39; Papillons, Toccata, Grosse Sonate No. 1, Phantasiestücke, Arabeske, Blümenstuck, and 9 other works. Reprinted from Breitkopf and Härtel edition.
These 21 symphonies, composed by Mozart between 1764 and 1771 while he was still a boy, are astonishing displays of his precocious genius. Reproduced from the authoritative Breitkopf and Härtel Complete Works Edition, they abound in the qualities that characterize his finest works: melodic richness, musical invention, and a much-imitated but unsurpassed grace. A splendid way for musicians and music lovers alike to savor and study the composer's youthful development and growing mastery of symphonic form, this new and modestly priced volume completes Dover's three-part cycle of Mozart's symphonic compositions, which include Symphonies Nos. 22–34 and Nos. 35–41. All are among the most performed and recorded works in the orchestral repertoire.
