Overview


This new edition of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concertos Nos. 2 and 3 unites both works for the first time in a single score. In addition to a difficult-to-find version of Tchaikovsky's original Piano Concerto No. 2 in G major, this edition features Alexander Siloti's suggested revisions. Although Siloti had the composer's permission to edit the work, he significantly shortened the second movement despite Tchaikovsky's objections, and published the concerto with his own revisions after the composer's untimely death. Piano Concerto No. 2 is usually performed with Siloti's cuts; this edition offers performers both versions.
Originally intended as a symphony, the Piano Concerto No. 3 in E-flat major was published as a one-movement work. The piece contains a massive piano cadenza of striking virtuosity, surpassing even that of the Piano Concerto No. 1 in both brilliance and difficulty. Pianists will appreciate this comprehensive and modestly priced two-piano edition of two major romantic virtuoso works.
