Piano Concertos
on: April 08, 2004, 06:35:49 AM
Hi

I need help finding the scores of these pieces in a 2 hands one piano reduction. As in both the solo and orchestral parts condensed for one player. Do they exist for these pieces listed below?

1. Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2
2. Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 3 (i cant imagine how its done)
3. Brahms's Piano Concerto No. 2
4. Greig Piano Concerto in A
5. Beethoven 5 Piano Concertos
6. Shostakovich Piano Concerto No. 2
7. Ravel Piano Concerto in G

Thanks a lot. I hope they exist.

I know there are a few watered down (some more than others) of the Grieg concerto, and Alkan I believe transcribed the first movement-if not all (?) of Beethoven's 3rd concerto which must be pretty cool to hear. Other than that, I highly doubt there are solo piano transcriptions of any of those, at least not ones that are easily available. To be honest, though, it probably wouldn't be too hard to make your own from a 2-piano 4-hand score.

Yeah you are right but probably jsut very tedious. I have watered down the Chopin Piano Concerto No. 1 myself but that one is much easier as orchestral parts and solo parts dont often come together... If they do, the subject is probably much the same thing.

Do you know the website where i can download them?

I'm not sure if you can find one, though if someone has them they could email one to you. Check on sheetmusicplus.com though, I think they'll have what you're looking for (if not piano solo versions, they'll definitely have all the 2 piano versions).
