J.S. Bach: C Minor Concerto for Two Pianos/Robert Schumann: Andante & Variations, Opus 46 [With CD (Audio)] (Music Minus One (Numbered))
Although originally conceived as a virtuoso piece for Piano and Orchestra, with a thematically unrelated introduction, Schumann's Abegg Variations Op.1 remains an important work in the solo piano repertoire. Full of rich textures, sonorous harmonies and extensive passagework, this work is an exciting and challenging piece for the advancing and accomplished pianist alike.
This highly authoritative Urtext edition of the score provides the closest representation of the composer's original intentions, as edited with critical commentaries by Ernst Herttrich and fingered by Walther Lampe.
