Barenreiter Piano Kaleidoscope

This album is a special edition not only due to its very affordable price but also because it features a cross section of Bärenreiters extensive piano catalogue. The pieces and movements range from the 18th century through to the first decades of the 20th century. During these approximately 200 years keyboard playing developed considerably and together with the unstoppable rise of the pianoforte since the end of the 18th century, it became hugely popular. The fifteen composers who are represented in this edition have each, in their inimitable way, shaped the possibilities of sound and playing techniques of this instrument in their works. In our piano collection you will find compositions from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Early Modern eras. The pieces also vary in national style and range from low through to high technical difficulty. An appetiser for our Urtext editions give it a try! - Contents: Prelude C major BWV 846 No.1 from: The Well-Tempered Clavier I [Bach, Johann Sebastian]; 1ère Gymnopédie No.1 [Satie, Erik]; Allegretto C minor D 915 [Schubert, Franz]; Waltz B minor No. 11 from: Waltzes op. 39.
