.. while I usually like Henle too, the WU is the winner this time...

yep. i agrees. but im the board champion of those orange urtexts (definately the minority as most are henle buffs...but it was nice to see someone else appreciate/discover those kids ( naturlaut  gave them nice praise in the nocturnes edition thread on the repertoire board)


...

amazing! thank you for posting this, am not familiar with this and will try to discover this myself. soooo jelous of your vintage LP finds, are in the US or overseas (wondering how you came about these? vintage record store? online? private estate/garage sale? )

will check worldcat.org for any libraries i have access to to see if i can find.



I have previously studied with the American pianist Constance Keene, whose husband was the famed Abram Chasins - the pianist and the composer. I wish I was more savvy at that time.  Anyway, this is quite a rare recording of the couple playing through all three Abram Chasins' transcriptions of Strauss Waltzes for 2 pianos. Really fantastic writing and playing, it's a shame no one really knows or plays these now (none of the many issues of the scores are in print, and none of the LP recordings are transferred on CDs; there are no commercial recordings on YouTube either). I am fortunate enough to have collected all the actual scores and the records; here you are, the fabled recording of the couple, which I just received, and the first edition of the Künstlerleben.

how incredibly awesome is that! i know of/admire Chasins (i have name dropped him from time to time and no one seemed to really know who i was talking about or care! he was a professor at curtis for a while wasn't he?).

that you have any connection to him via your instructional lineage is quite awesome indeed.

did this work ever come up in conversation or in study? did you ever hear his wife or the man himself (or a record/recording) of this played ?
love this thing, one of my favorite works by him, it is probably one of his more 'popular ones' though i do like many of his seldom  played/recorded ones. i don't know if any of his scores are still in print. i am always, always, on the lookout for something by him when i go vintage score hunting, will buy anythign with his name on it immediate/on site!

i love the 'hectic-ness' the piece portrays, you almost cannot play this too fast/i.e. the more you 'rush' the better it sounds lol

great finds! thanks for posting. please continue to update the thread w your finds. i learned quite a bit from your posts (inded your posts throughout ps are quite awesome. i appreciate your experience, insight, etc)

One more post before the day is out.

This is a very rare Chasins score that was published as a Specimen Copy (not intended for public sales).  This Fairy Tale has one surviving recording, played by Chasins himself.



 

No current publisher for this, but I have just scanned it for another forum (no PDF in circulation thus far) so if you are seriously interested in it send me a PM.

I am currently doing some research on Abram Chasins, and it's startling how little the world knows about his life and work, even though he has contributed a great deal (as a pianist, composer, writer, teacher, radio host and producer, close association with every major Golden Age pianist in the US).  The only scores we will never get are the two concerti, which he withdrawn after their first performances.  Rachmaninoff actually practised the concerto with him on the second piano before the premiere and gave it high praises.

Anyone who is fascinated by the Golden Age pianists such as Godowsky and Rachmaninoff should not miss this book:

.  

Plenty of used copies on eBay and it's a joy ride reading it.

This just arrived:



Maria Josephina, wife of Brazilian composer Francisco Mignone, playing her husbands compositions (the 12 Valsas Choro and 12 Valsas de Esquina).  Can't wait to get these on original LPs later on.

I already have her playing of Valsas de Esquina on another CD (Japanese press) but it's the first time I hear her Valsas Choro and I am no less impressed with her playing. Notes are so simple on the page and yet she brings out such emotions and depth.

Buying sheet music is like doing hard drugs..  bigger high and more risk of addiction if its also likely to cause harm when you actually touch it.

Binding is smart! I never got to do that.  I used to 3hole insert them and the pages would tear out. I buy the book so I have the set! Plus I love going to the music store. I wanted to look at the Bee concerto and printed the 2nd mvm, then checked at the store and they had...sympathetically ordered the exact concerto!  The rach set was just something I found online when I searched concertos.
 I like to write in the books cause it feels like I am claimbing territory....

It's also handy because I always lose my printed copies and when I want to get back to the piece the carefully selected fingerings are all gone...

Not that I actually have correct fingerings written in the books either, I tend to write different to what I play. Sometimes my teacher points out that I have written something like 12345 going upwards for the left hand and I don't even notice  ;D

 It is nice to write on the thinner paper, though! I love how the music looks on paper and in books! It's fun comparing the different printings. I must sleep now. I wont be buying any books soon, i did buy a book of chopin's letters for like a dollar, so i wont be lonely. Ill look at that scriabin, too!  Take care, everyone!

That is quite something to learn. Just out of curiosity how long do you think you would need to prepare three pages of it? For me it might take a year if I could devote a half hour a day to it. Roughly 180 hours +/-

aha reminds me of my room so much before i moved. lived with 8 people in a two story house. one of the girls use to leave her guitar in my room all the time (all i had was the piano) so i'd run around strumming it (i couldnt, and still can't play it). i once tried to play some improv to it but  had no idea what key it was in. coincidentally i thought about dulling the sound for the rest of the occupants (one girl complained about my tuner, as she was taking a test for university...turned out to be a practice maths test :/ - oddly enough she would run in and play it drunk though. and she played rap loudly anyway. The guys (who didn't work nor study) above me would host local corroborees (over exaggeration) for their awful music festivals like soundwave and i'd hear their stomping on the floor boards all the time. So i never bothered. Why do you need to dull the sound?

Probably never old chap.

This year marks the centennary of the birth of Benjamin Britten, so I have stopcked up on some of his solo piano music:

Night Piece
Holiday Diary Op 5
Moderato and Nocturne
Three Character Pieces
Twelve Variations

I already have the score for this:



Though I'm not sure I can manage the vocals.  :-[
