Piano
Composed by Gabriel Faure (1845-1924). Edited by Howat. This edition: Urtext. Sheet Music. Edition Peters #EP7601. Published by Edition Peters (PE.P07601).

Item Number: PE.P07601

This collection of short works for piano provides an ideal introduction to Faure's music for the intermediate player. Although at times the stretch of an adult hand is called for, the technical demands on the pianist are far less than those required to master his larger works, such as the Nocturnes and Barcarolles. Roy Howat has consulted all the appropriate sources and, as a result, has been able to correct the errors and misprints in previous editions of the Piphces brphves. Besides their straight- forward musical beauty, the 'Piphces brphves' are remarkable for their blend of coherence and diversity. Spanning up to forty years of Faure's composing life, they reflect the many facets of his long composing career. Roy Howat.
