Includes sheet music both for piano and violin, in two separate volumes. Reprinted from C. F. Peters edition. Beethoven's violin sonata in A major, Op. 47, known as the "Kreutzer" sonata, was originally dedicated to George Bridgetower. As the story goes, while drinking with Beethoven after performing the sonata with him in concert, Bridgetower insulted a woman whom Beethoven loved; with his characteristic rage, Beethoven rededicated the piece to Rodolphe Kreutzer, who, though he was considered the best violinist of the time, did not care for Beethoven's music and never performed the sonata. Heavy, smooth, soft white paper and consistent, dark printing make Polonius editions stand out. Pianists will delight in the sturdy spiral binding, which allows scores to easily lay flat when opened to any page.
