Frederic Chopin was a masterful composer of the Scherzo, often as part of a cycle, but the high point of this genre are the four Scherzi he wrote as independent pieces in their own right. Written between the years of 1831-1842, Opus 20, Op.31, Op.39 and Op.54 are all brought together here in one superb volume.
This Wiener Urtext edition has been edited from authoritative sources, texts and original editions by Jan Ekier, and represents an accurate and authoritative presentation of these magnificent works by one of the greatest Piano composers of all time.
These pieces have alively tempo, are dramatic and require virtuosic playing. With an editorial and artistic commentaryand an insightful historical perspective, this is a fabulous volume for Chopin or Piano enthusiasts.
