  • 2012-04-13 00:00:00.0 Nice piece and score

    This is such an amazing piece. If you want to play it, you have to buy this score which is unfortunately expensive. I find that it is printed on good paper, and after practicing it for a few hours will lay flat. I did find some errors in the score...

    , but so far they have been pretty easy to sort out by listening to it.

  • 2011-05-07 00:00:00.0 Remarkable piece, great book...

    The People United Will Never Be Defeated is a colossal work in the form of theme and variations. The piece has six sets of six discrete variations an optional improvised cadenza and recapitulation. The piece is about 50 minutes long. Rzewski creation explores nearly every pianistic of the 20th century...

    and weaves in and out of tonality. It is one of the most important and massive compositions of our century. The piece is transcendentally difficult. There is counterpoint almost everywhere, and many of the musical lines are extremely difficult and awkward to play. There are large, expansive arpeggios and a lot of rapid repeated notes. The piece is certainly only for experienced pianists. You will not be disappointed with the piece or the book.
