DON GIOVANNI FULL SCORE

DON GIOVANNI FULL SCORE

Author: MOZART, WOLFGANG
$26.95
More Info
This is the complete orchestral and vocal score of Mozart's Don Giovanni, considered by many to be the greatest opera ever written. This edition contains all the music Mozart wrote for Don Giovanni, both for the original version performed in Prague (1787) and the alterations―Don Ottavio's aria Dalla sua pace, Elvira's aria (and its transposition to D Major) Mi tradì quell'alma ingrata, Zerlina and Leporello's duet Per queste tue manine, the cut in the finale ― made for the first Viennese performance six months later, as well as the concert ending of the overture.
The editors, Georg Schünemann and Kurt Soldan, worked directly from Mozart's autograph manuscript and from early copies made under Mozart's supervision, correcting many errors that had persisted since Mozart's time. An extensive commentary lists all vague or controversial elements the editors encountered in the score. In addition the complete Italian libretto and stage directions by Lorenzo Da Ponte and a German translation of the vocal text by Georg Schünemann have also been included.
Do not confuse this with a piano rendering; it is the full orchestral score. In addition to its obvious uses for study, this score is also an indispensable associate for anyone listening to the music. In no other manner can the listener or student keep full awareness of the many elements that make up this opera.

RITE OF SPRING

Author: STRAVINSKY, IGOR
$7.95
More Info

With this brilliant and uncompromising work -- perhaps the most famous musical work of the twentieth century -- Stravinsky changed the course of modern music forever. Discarding conventional harmonies for bizarrely dissonant chords, and uniform metrics for harshly jarring beat patterns, he created a sensational theater piece that, at the work's 1931 premier, caused the music world's most talked-about riot.
"Every law of musical syntax, every canon of harmony seems to have been violated, every limit of rhythmic perversity and eccentricity of orchestration exceeded in this tumultuous cataclysm of sound," says Grove's; "yet with all its deliberate crudity and violence the 'Rite' is a clearly planned and perfectly controlled and coordinated piece of music [that] has long been accepted universally as a masterpiece and is in the repertory of every large symphony orchestra."
Reproduced here from an authoritative edition, the score is ideal for study in the classroom, at home, or in the concert hall. This affordable, durable, and portable volume will be the edition of choice for music students and music lovers alike.

Originally written in Latin, Steps to Parnassus was translated into the principal European languages, but the only English version was a free paraphrase published in 1886. The present translation by Alfred Mann is therefore the first faithful rendering in English from the original Latin and presents the essence of Fux's teachings. For its distinction as a classic and its undiminished usefulness for the modern student it is a privilege to offer this fine translation in the Norton Library.

SYMPHONY #3 IN Eb EROICA

SYMPHONY #3 IN Eb EROICA

Author: BEETHOVEN
$9.95
More Info
Completed in 1804, the "Eroica" Symphony marked a profound turning point in Beethoven's personal and professional life. Confronted by severe and progressive hearing loss, the composer drew upon immense inner reserves to create one of his most dynamic and expressive works.
Original in structure and form, the epochal "Eroica" signaled the composer's break with classical precedents and initiated an irrevocable change in the course of symphonic music. The design and craftsmanship of the work astonished and delighted audiences, and brought its already distinguished creator critical acclaim as a "complete, consummate artist."
Long a staple of the orchestral repertoire, the Symphony No. 3 is published here in full score, with bar-numbered movements. This convenient, affordable volume is the edition of choice for study in the classroom, at home, or in the concert hall.

TRISTAN UND ISOLDE

Author: WAGNER, RICHARD
$44.95
More Info

Among musicologists and serious lovers of music, Wagner's Tristan und Isolde is generally considered the high point of orchestration in the musical tradition of nineteenth-century Europe. It shows in most successful form Wagner's unsurpassed gift for using the instruments of the orchestra, and generations of students have worked with it to learn its technique.
Tristan und Isolde also has a remarkable historical position. It was the opera that most of the post-Wagnerians used to build upon, and it was also the opera that the anti-Wagnerians seized upon very frequently for their attacks and for their attempts to move musically away from Wagnerism. Accepted or rejected, it has been the work with which late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century musicians had to come to terms, and much musical history of this period can be understood through it.
This edition reproduces the full orchestral score in a clear, modern engraving for easy reading and piano study, with large legible notation. Do not confuse this with a piano rendering; it is a full orchestral score.
In addition to its obvious uses for study, this score is also an indispensable associate for anyone listening to recordings. In no other manner can the listener keep full awareness of the incredible orchestral richness of this opera.
