Piano Street Magazine

The Complete Piano Works of 12 Composers

January 26th, 2023 in Piano Street Site News by | 39 comments

Piano Street’s digital sheet music library is constantly growing. With the additions made during the past months, we now offer the complete solo piano works by twelve of the most famous Classical, Romantic and Impressionist composers in the web’s most pianist friendly user interface.

UPDATE OCTOBER 2023: Following the poll below, we have now finshed the work to publish the complete works of both J.S. Bach and S. Rachmaninoff!

Last year, we celebrated Piano Street’s 20th anniversary with a new web design and new improved composer pages. Now, when you visit a composer’s page, you get an instant overview of all their piano works as well as quick access to each composer’s most popular piano pieces.

With the recent addition of hundreds of scores, we now offer the complete piano works by twelve of the most famous Classical, Romantic and Impressionist composers: Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Chopin, Liszt, Brahms, Grieg, Tchaikovsky, Debussy and Ravel.

For example, you can now download any of Mozart’s 27 Piano Concertos. Browse and study your favorite concertos in full score or in piano reduction. Many of Debussy‘s lesser known pieces, including several works for piano four hands or two pianos have also been added recently. And be sure to visit the Grieg page to see how much more there is to the Norwegian composer than his ever-present Lyric Pieces – our Grieg collection now holds no less than 219 works!

When you have clicked a piece link, don’t forget to open the AST which allows you to access selected recordings while following along in the score – and immerse yourself in the world of classical piano music!

While we offer the complete work lists with work data, comments, first-line previews and forum links openly on the website (for free without registration) you need a Gold membership in order to download pdf-scores or view and listen to the piece in the AST.

Who is next up?

We will continue to work through the major piano composers in order to provide digital scores for their complete solo piano productions. With the 12 above mentioned composers checked off, which composers would you like us to work on next? Let us know by answering our poll and posting a comment motivating your selection.

    Always looking for more resources

  • Gilvan do Amaral Gomes says:

    Why not Wagner transcriptions? Liszt own work and transcriptions of Beethoven?

  • Guido says:

    Yes, my vote for Wagner, Bizet and Handel

  • 7funtimes says:

    > Where are the women ?

    Tchaikovsky, Chopin maybe.

  • Lawrence Gray says:

    Enrique Granados is badly neglected.

  • James Clay says:

    Anything by Chopin, Brahms and Wagner..

  • Jill G says:

    I do like Bach!

  • Wesley Dearham says:

    I agree with the request for women composers. We need to change that historical under-representation. So consider Clara Wieck/Schumann, Amy Beach, Florence Price (who is also African-American

  • Luke W says:

    I love the idea of Florence Price.

  • Signe Larson says:

    Yes, more women! Mel Bonis is another composer I did not see mentioned.

  • Martin Tangora says:

    Mr Gray suggests Granados. I would suggest Albeniz.

  • Denis Chericone says:

    Vittorio Rieti simply for something different. Vincent Persichetti also. Fanny Mendelssohn.

  • Rick Sadilek says:

    Louis Moreau Gottschalk, Alma Deutscher (I agree that you need women)

  • Andy says:

    Erik Satie

  • Randall Montbriand says:

    I whole heartedly agree that a greater proportion of female composers (even the sister of Schumann, Clara who was actually considered better composer than her brother). As many female composers as possible. From all eras.

  • Arno Greyling says:

    What about Ottorino Respighi?

  • John Gray says:

    Definitely Bach then Haydn please

  • Barbara Wing says:

    How about Sibelius piano solos? A major composer but neglected in the piano world.

    Also two piano music.

  • Pamela C. says:

    Bach is a must-have and must-play for every serious pianist. His work is extensive, so a complete work on Piano Street will definitely boost its reputation and member subscriptions.

  • Arthur Rosenwald says:

    I would love to see Camille Saint Saens next. Great piano pieces!

  • Robert Wilson says:

    Don’t forget Poldowsky. (Lady Dean Paul)

  • Leevi Madetoja.

  • Mark P says:

    You wouldn’t seriously place any female composer above the male ones mentioned, so what’s the big deal? I’m sure they’ll get to them eventually. I can’t say I’m that bothered!

  • Christina Blalock says:

    I suggest Scarlatti, Chaminade (a woman composer!), and Rimsky-Korsakoff.

  • Edward Funke says:

    Rudolf Friml, Henselt, etc.

  • Jenny Bouson says:

    I’d love to see Scarlatti!

  • Sophie Leacacos says:

    Agree with Lawrence Gray, Enrique Granados is very important for advanced soloists.

  • Rebecca Shively says:

    Scott Joplin

  • Hippo says:

    If you do a woman, Clara Schumann did not write a huge number of pieces, and some of them are quite popular. Fanny Hensel is also very good sometimes though in my opinion not consistently interesting.

  • Mike D says:

    Yes, where are the women composers…?
    I only voted Scriabin because Shostakovich was not a choice.
    And then last, I noticed Bach was there… oh, DUH – BACH!

  • Patrick says:

    William Grant Still; stunning piano music and more women composers. The comment above referring to the placement of women beside the given male choices as not being a serious proposal, shows a very limited knowledge of the subjugation of women and their ascribed roles in society. Historically there would not be the opportunities for great women composers to create a large body of work let alone have it performed. See names suggested above…

  • Laura says:

    I would love to see Philip Glass included.

  • Wes says:

    Definitely Bach. With his vast array of pieces, there’s enough for everyone.

  • Erik Devis says:

    Shostakovitch !!

  • Carole says:

    I love Florence Price’s compositions. What about Fanny Mendelssohn and Clara Schumann. They were all great women composers.

  • Dee Evans says:

    Yes where are the women? A good example being Chaminade!

  • Nat says:

    Speaking of underrepresentation, where is baroque? Baroque music, is so foundatioal for many musical techniques and forms that continue to influence classical music to this day. Including baroque composers would broaden the appeal of the library to many musicians. Therefore, I voted for Bach.

  • Robert says:

    I assume Bach is impractical because of the sheer volume, or else it’s a case of whether or not he wrote music for the “piano”(?) Rachmaninoff is the logical second choice. I would also consider Isaac Albeniz.
