Brahms brilliantly captured the spontaneity and passion of Hungarian gypsy music in his 21 Hungarian Dances. In this volume containing the first 10 dances, editors Carol Ann Bell and Digby Bell have scrutinized all available autograph manuscripts of the duet, solo and orchestral versions and compared them with the earliest printed editions to produce the most scholarly, critical body of these works available today. Performance notes, helpful fingering suggestions, ornament realizations, and a wealth of historical background are provided.

  • February 03, 2008 Fun with Brahms

    These duets are really a lot of fun to play with your piano teacher or anyone else for that matter! Requires carefull attention to rhythm in order to make it work. Fingering provided by the editor is excellent, and editor's notes at the beginning of the book shed light...

    on how the individual dances should be played. A good deal of each dance is suitable for intermediate level but a few parts are tricky enough to merit an intermediate/advanced rating.
