This handsome compilation features a pair of great works from two distinguished Russian composers. Alexander Scriabin wrote his Piano Concerto in F-sharp Minor during the first significant phase of his artistic career, during which he focused on creating piano works in the modes of Chopin and Liszt. He ventured beyond his Romantic models to fashion pieces with a fresh delicacy, clarity, and richness, as well as a uniquely expressive range that ran from subtlety to vivid sensations (the composer's favorite term). Anton Rubinstein spent a lifetime touring, thrilling audiences with a pianistic virtuosity reputed to rival that of Liszt. A prolific composer (his oeuvre includes 17 operas), Rubinstein naturally wrote a vast quantity of piano music, including this magnificent concerto. Pianists as well as any admirer of these composers will delight in this convenient, authoritative edition of two excellent piano concertos. Unabridged republication of Scriabin's Piano Concerto, Op. 20, originally published by M. P. Belaieff, Frankfurt, n.d., and Rubinstein's Piano Concerto, Op. 70, originally published by Bartholf Senff, Leipzig, n.d. Introduction by Joseph Banowetz. [8 3/8 x 11, 224 pp.].
