Dvorák, AntonínSerenade for String Orchestra E major op. 22Dvorák’s ´´Serenade in E major” for string orchestra is one of his most popular and frequently played works. It was written in the spring of 1875, when he had just experienced his first successes at the conductor’s podium and had received a state arts scholarship. The score and parts were published by Bote & Bock, Berlin, in 1879.This Urtext edition is based on the composer’s autograph score. It corrects mistakes found in the first edition and so, for the first time, the editor incorporates omitted passages from the autograph, marking them with ´´Vi-de”. This reconstruction makes it possible to clarify the piece’s structure. The author of the Foreword, Katerina Nová, is head of the Dvorák Museum in Prague.• Detailed Foreword by Katerina Nová (Cz/Eng/Ger) and Critical Commentary by the editor (Eng)• Including ´´Vi-de” passages from the autograph scoreEdition no.: BA 10423ISMN: 9790260107472Editor: Tait, RobinLanguage(s) of text: Czech, English, GermanProduct format: Score, Urtext editionIncludes the following individual parts: String orchestraBinding: PaperbackPages / Format: XIII, 61 S. - 31,0 x 24,3 cm

Instrument : mixed choir (SATB) and orchestraType : vocal/piano scoreNombre de Pages : 110In recent years Karl Jenkins has become one of the world´s best-selling living composers. He continues to conduct his epic Adiemus Live Concerts with distinguished orchestras including the London Philharmonic, featuring in Festivals and concerts in Britain and abroad; and his moving choral work The Armed Man: A Mass For Peace is now firmly lodged as a concert favourite. This new work builds on the style which the British public have come to know and adore. Jenkins has set the usual Latin movements of the requiem mass, but, in keeping with his usual trait of drawing from other cultures, he has also set five Japanese haiku â€˜deathâ€™ poems. Such poems are usually to do with nature, have a single idea, and consist of seventeen syllables divided 5-7-5 over three lines. As one can see from the text, the Japanese view natureâ€™s water cycle (precipitation) as being synonymous with life. The Western and Eastern texts are combined in two of the haiku movements, Having Seen The Moon and Farewell, which incorporate the Benedictus and the Agnus Dei respectively. Both are intoned by male voices in a monastic style as a counterpoint to the Japanese text sung by females. The instrumentation of these haiku settings includes the ancient Japanese wind instrument, the shakuhachi. Elsewhere, as usual, Jenkins has used some ethnic drums (e.g. Arabic darabuca, Japanese daiko, frame drums) and even a hip-hop rhythm in the Dies Irae!Content : Introit & Kyrie - Dies irae - The snow of yesterday (Gozan) - Rex tremendae - Confutatis - From deep in my heart (Issho) - Lacrimosa - Now as a spirit (Hokusai) - Pie Jesu - Having seen the moon - Lux aeterna - Farewell (Banzan) - Dona eis pacem - In paradisum

Advanced pianists will enjoy the experience of playing one of the 20th Century´s most famous compositions, arranged by the composer himself to retain all the grandeur and sparkle of the original work.
Dvorák, AntonínConcerto for Violoncello and Orchestra B minor op. 104Edition no.TP 620ISMN9790006205448This study score is based on the score and complete performance material of Dvorák’s famous B minor Cello Concerto (BA 9045) edited by Jonathan Del Mar and published in 2011. In addition the study score contains a Foreword by Dvorák scholar Jan Smaczny.Like every other major 19th-century cello concerto, Dvorák’s concerto resulted from a collaboration between the composer and a virtuoso musician. Several passages in Dvorák’s autograph were written by the cellist Hanus Wihan but Bärenreiter’s edition now reveals that some details in the orchestral parts are also in his writing, showing just how closely the two musicians were working together.The editor Jonathan Del Mar has conscientiously examined every available source, including two that have hitherto been either ignored or crucially undervalued. His research has led to a benchmark edition that reconstructs, for the first time since its initial publication in 1896, Dvorák’s definitive version of the solo part. It differs from previous editions in practically every measure and hundreds of corrections have also been made to the orchestral parts.• Includes Dvorák’s final and definitive version of the solo cello part• Incorporates new discoveries regarding the collaboration between Dvorák and Wihan• With Feuermann’s and Casals’s alternative versions of a passage in the first movement• Detailed Foreword (Eng/Cz/Ger)EditorDel Mar, JonathanLanguage(s) of textEnglish, Czech, GermanProduct formatStudy score, Urtext editionBindingPaperbackPages / FormatXXIII, 118 S. - 22,5 x 16,5 cm

He dedicated his ´´Ballade”, composed in 1879, to his teacher Camille Saint-Saëns. Structurally and in terms of its lyrical character the work breaks from the genre’s epic form and takes on the traits of the sonata form. In 1881 Fauré arranged his ´´Ballade” for piano and orchestra and the work was premiered in this new scoring.Drawing on the most recent discoveries and comprehensive source research, the work is presented in a scholarly-critical Urtext edition. The publication, which is based on the ´´Œuvres complètes de Gabriel Fauré”, includes a detailed foreword and notes on performance practice.- Published on the basis of ´´Œuvres complètes de Gabriel Fauré”- Incorporates the latest research and findings regarding the sources- Scholarly-critical Urtext edition with advice on performance practice- Detailed foreword (Fr/Eng/Ger)Christophe Grabowskiis a pianist and doctor of musicology who studied in Warsaw and in Paris.
