PERIOD MUSIC

MODERN CHAMBER MUSIC
Arthur Farwell (1872-1952)
Four masterpieces from the microfilm collection of this significant post-Romantic American composer's works at the Eastman School of Music:


Ravel, String Quartet in F Major (1903). A corrected, newly-engraved printing based on original sources, with bar numbers, lots of cues, and manageable page turns.    $50
"Bravo! What a beautiful edition, and so meticulously worked out! An outstanding achievement." - Arbie Orenstein

Faure, String Quartet Op. 121 (1924). A new edition preserving and extrapolating the composer's uncompleted markings, to reveal the expressive contrasts and North African influence not previously recognized in this work.    $30

Carl Nielsen, Viola Quintet (1888). Corrected and reset from the centennial facsimile.    $30

TEACHING AND STUDY

  • Ignace Pleyel, Fast Movements from Duos, Opus 8. Parts or score for two violins or two violas.    $10
  •  
  • Solo Cello: William (Willem) Van den Burg, 67 Etudes on the Beethoven Quartets (1980). Wm. Van den Burg (1901-1992), principal cellist for Stokowski and for Monteux, from 1927 to 1950, composed these Etudes, one for each movement of the quartets, as a monument to his modern approach to the cello, drawing on all the quartet voices. The great musicians of his day who were colleagues and personal friends, such as Menuhin, Pleeth, Frank Miller, and Orlando Cole, lavished praise for his manuscript but it found no practical use until this posthumously engraved edition.    $60
  • "These Etudes will not only assist cellists in mastering the technically difficult passages in the quartets, but they will put the cellists into Beethoven's stylistic frame." - Yo Yo Ma

  •  

    Solo Viola: The 67 Cello Etudes transcribed and edited. Dedicated to Van den Burg's brother Herbert, former principal violist with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra.    $75

    QUARTETS WITH TANGO FLAVOR
