Re: Kate Loder -- Piano Music

I'd never heard of this composer before. I guessed she must be related to Edward Loder who wrote the opera "Raymond and Agnes" and a search on the web proved that this was the case. What is even more intriguing is that she is credited with having written an opera called "L'elisir d'am...

Re: Faure 4th Nocturne - misprints?

Thanks for the reply. However the "a" which appears as the last note of the 8va indication should surely be a flat in order to correspond with the passage at the end of the bar? I have a very old copy (falling to bits!) of the first 8 nocturnes that was once owned by Howard Ferguson. Altho...

Faure 4th Nocturne - misprints?

The edition I use is the same as that available for download on this site and I'm wondering if anybody has a more recent edition where any misprints have been corrected. In the penultimate bar of the third page should the "d"s and "a"s in the descending right hand passage revert ...

Tune identification needed

I was watching a dvd the other night (Kojak!) and heard a tune played in the background which I knew very well but not its title. No web tune identifier was any help (I suspect it's still copyright) but I guess it's a French waltz . Can anyone identify it if I give the notes (lower case= crotchets. ...

Re: Right Hand only piano solos

One of Richard Rodney Bennett's Studies (It was recorded by Cherkassky) is for Right Hand alone.

Postal Charges

I've purchased a few of the Performer's Reprints editions (published in association with IMSLP) from Amazon UK and went to the website of the edition to see if anything was of interest to me. Sure enough there were a lot of things there that I would like to purchase but the lowest quote for shipping...

Re: Questions about Le Tombeau de Couperin

I don't play this piece, but it looks possible to play the accompanying notes of the first three quaver beats with the left hand, using the the thumb on the awkward chord in the r.h. and changing to 2 at the bottom of the last chord in the bar and playing the following e with the thumb . Of course t...

Beethoven Variations op.34

I have been looking at the composer's manuscript (reproduced at this site) and was surprised to see that the 3rd variation has what certainly seems to be an "alla breve" sign at the beginning. None of the older editions that I know give this and I was wondering if any of the more recent Ur...

Re: Cherkassky/Petrouchka

I didn't know that and it's very interesting but I think the version issued commercially was a studio recording. I imagine the conductor would have had to have been rather more famous than Bryan Balkwill in order to attract buyers to a recording as I don't think that Cherkassky's presence alone was ...

Cherkassky/Petrouchka

Shura Cherkassky made several recordings of Stravinsky's piano solo transcription of the Petrouchka ballet but there was a recording in the days of vinyl (available,as I recall in the 1960s) in which he played the concertante piano part in the orchestral score. Does anybody know with which orchestra...

Franz Bendel's Op.14

This work purports to be based on three "favourite" pieces by Mozart. I certainly don't recognise the originals of any of them. Does anybody know on what Mozart works Bendel based this opus, or is it just a charming pastiche passed off as an arrangement of originals in the same way as Krei...

Re: Who rewrote Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto?

I can't help with what the editors of the forthcoming edition require, but it's interesting that Sapelnikoff, who played the work with Tchaikovsky conducting, recorded the work in the 1920s and performed it in the form that is usually played. This doesn't necessarily prove, of course, that he used t...

Re: Need help finding a certain Hungarian piano piece

So little to go on! Could it be that the composer isn't Hungarian? If so, I'll make a tentative suggestion that it might be Smetana's "Peasant festival" (sometimes the original title is translated as something else, "Harvest Home" being another translation ) which is a fairly dif...
