This authoritative edition continues Dover's series of great piano concertos with orchestral reduction for second piano — the universal standard, for students and professionals alike, for learning and rehearsing all concertos. Together for the first time are two of the most performed and recorded concertos of all time: the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1 in G-flat Minor, Op. 23, and the Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2 in C Minor, Op. 18.
Both of these great Russian works have achieved unrivaled worldwide popularity and are absolute musts in the repertoire of every serious pianist. The Tchaikovsky concerto combines a virtuoso piano part with brilliant orchestral scoring. The Rachmaninoff concerto is universally admired for the dark, brooding opening, enormously popular themes, and passionate, lyrical final movement. Every pianist and serious piano student will want this attractive and modestly priced edition.
