Shorter Works for Pianoforte Solo
Supplementing the Dover edition of Schubert’s complete piano sonatas, this volume contains all of the remainder of Schubert’s music for pianoforte solo (except the dances and a few unfinished pieces): the ever popular “Wanderer” fantasy, Opus 15; the 8 impromptus (Opp. 90 and 142), experimental forerunners of one of the typical genres of the later Romantic composers; the Moments Musicals, Opus 94; the Adagio and Rondo, Opus 145; and numerous variations, scherzos, and other short pieces.
The music is photographically reprinted from the Breitkopf & Härtel Schubert-Gesammtausgabe, still considered the standard, authoritative edition of Schubert’s music.
Note heads in this edition have been reproduced in a size large enough to be read easily at the keyboard, and margins and spaces between staves are conveniently wide to permit written notes, harmonic analysis, fingerings, and running measure numbers. Essential to all classical pianists, this edition is also practical for study, reference, enjoyment — virtually any use.
