Trifonov Live in Carnegie Hall

Hear Trifonovs captivating recital at Carnegie Hall as of December 7th in works by Schumann, Shostakovich, Stravinsky and encores by Medtner. The music on this program requires poetry and passion that only a master pianist can deliver. “Daniil Trifonov’s playing has it all … he leaves you struggling for superlatives,” said The Guardian.

After listening to them like a million times on my nano the past 2 weeks, I've decided to begin studying this wonderful music.

My concern right now is which edition/book/etc i should buy. The pdf from piano street is nice to read while listening to the music, but not for learning - at least not for me! The sheet music archive has one, any comments on that?

any suggestions welcome. thanks a lot Smiley

Barenreiter.  Should run about $17.

If you're cheapo, you can get an Urtext edition from burtnco for about $8.  Or get the Dover one with the partitas, etc., which is not bad at all.

thanks! i looked it up on the barenreiter website. it says it's an urtext edition. does it have fingerings? the sample they show doesn't.

I have the Dover and it is fine.  If you do not mind the lack of editing, I suggest you go with that, as it is very inexpensive (less than $10, I believe) and contains all of the Partitas, English Suites, French Suites, Inventions, Sinfonias, as well as the Goldberg Variations.

Best,
Michael

By all means, but with the enormous caveat that Busoni's is very much a free transcription, kind of like the Liszt-Busoni Mephisto Waltz.

i didn't realize busoni did this.  despite making fun of his concerto - i love his transcriptions.  i think they are more fun to play than bach's limited keyboard useage.  busoni probably puts in the octaves.
