  • April 09, 2009 Just the piano part and no more

    This score is JUST the solo piano part. There is no reduction of the orchestra part, except where the piano isn't playing (tuttis). Therefore, it is impossible to use this score if you want to play it on two pianos. Also, the piano part is Dvorak's original, and...

    doesn't include the Kurz revised part, if that interests you. At $30, it's expensive for getting only half of what you need... I'd look elsewhere to find a usable score of this piece.

  • August 13, 2007 Beware: much harder than it sounds.

    My experience is as an advanced amateur who has played the Chopin and Brahms piano concertos. A performer would usually prefer that a piece sound harder to play than it actually is. The Dvorak Piano Concerto is exactly the opposite: it is much harder to play than it sounds. Possible...

    reasons for this include the fact that Dvorak was not a pianist. In fact, many sections of the concerto are simply clumsy and awkward to play: they do not fit the hand well at all. Note that certain pianists (such as Richter) actively sought to play this concerto, likely because it is so difficult. When reviewers (and Dvorak himself) describe this piece as not virtuosic, they mean that it does not sound virtuosic, not that it is easy to play. This is probably the main reason why editions of this piece are rare.
