Concerto Grosso no. 1 is one of Alfred Schnittke´s best-known and most compelling works, sounding the surface of late Soviet life while resonating with contemporary compositional currents around the world such as postmodernism. It marked a decisive point in Schnittke´s development of the approach he called polystylism, which aimed to contain in a single composition the wide range of contemporary musical styles, including ´´jazz, pop, rock, or serial music.´´ Thanks to it and his other similar compositions, Schnittke became one of the most-performed and most-recorded living composers at the end of the twentieth century. Peter J. Schmelz´s Alfred Schnittke´s Concerto Grosso no. 1 represents the first accessible and comprehensive study of this composition. The novel structure of the book engages with the piece conceptually, historically, musically, and phenomenologically, with the six movements of the composition framing the six chapters. Augmenting and complicating the insights of existing English, Russian, and German publications on the Concerto Grosso no. 1 , the book adds new information from underused primary sources, including Schnittke´s unpublished correspondence and his many published interviews. It engages further with his sketches for the piece, and with contemporary Soviet musical criticism, resulting in a more objective, historical account of this rich, multifaceted composition, its influences, and its impact on music making in the USSR and worldwide.

Instrumentation: Vln—Pf Format: Sheet Music Details: ´With this publication, Komarowski, a Russian violin teacher of Polish descent, comes to America. The first movement is published in Grade 8 of the RCM, placing the work on the level of the Haydn Concerto in G Major. Most of the work is in the first and third position with a touch of fifth. Some more advanced alternate notes are provided, with others for simplification. Fingerings are not given. The composition has a light, happy air aboutit...a pleasant listening experience for theaudience and an exciting playing experience for the student.´ - American String Teacher,May 2007
Here is a beautiful sonata with accompaniement by a second clarinet. Work carefully ornaments (grace notes, trills with their endings, gruppetto...) in order to play them without haste. Keep in mind a beautiful sound; you are free to apply the nuances that you like; do not harden the staccato notes and sing well in the three movements. In the adagio movement, bar 28, do a little cadence on the second fermata, you will personalize even more your interpretation. - Renaud ESCRIVAInstruments: 2 Clarinettes SibDifficuly Level: EasyDuration: 7´15Musical Style: ClassicalCategory: Republished Master PieceComposer: LEFEVRE Jean Xavier Arranger: ESCRIVA Renaud

Franz Liszt came of age with the flowering of the Romantic movement in literature and the arts, and the Romantic spirit had a profound impact on his development as both a man and an artist. Indeed, Liszt, like Berlioz, Wagner, and Chopin, gave expression to that spirit in both his life and his music. Liszt cut a larger-than-life figure, and everything he did tended towards extravagance. As a performer he was one of the first great superstars, dazzling his audiences as much with his flamboyant dress and gestures as with his unprecedented virtuosity. Liszt´s approach to music placed him in the vanguard of Romantic innovation. He greatly expanded the range of sonorities available from the piano, inventing both delicate figuration and thundering effects. By addressing dramatic and poetic themes in his compositions, he helped create instead a music that expressed those sublime, ecstatic, harrowing, and heroic feelings that the Romantics held to be the essence of life. The Musically Speaking Conductor´s Guides are your link to an appreciation of the greatest classical music ever performed. Let Maestro Gerard Schwarz enrich your classical music listening enjoyment by illuminating the great works of the Masters with revealing commentary and educational insight. 1. Language: English.
