Gershwin - Preludes for Piano - Piano Solo Henle HN858

Product Description
"Some of GershwinŒÍs finest inspirations have not as yet been either published or publicly performed. It is probable that the production of his twenty-four preludes Œƒ will award him a still higher rank in the army of contemporary composers.Œî In 1925, an admirer thus heralded George GershwinŒÍs ambitious project in Vanity Fair, namely to compose preludes in allkeys as Bach and Chopin had done before. On 4 December of the following year, the composer publicly performed five of these pieces. However, th e extremely busy darling of Broadway only published the famous three Preludes for Piano (1927) during his lifetime. Henle are now proud to present them for the first time in a state-of-the-art Urtext edition.
Edited by Norbert Gertsch with fingering by Andreas Boyde.
