    I agree whole-heartidly with Mr Barnhart. The 6 viennese Waltzes (dances) are my favorite too, but very difficult unless you've got alot of technique available. These are not for the easily discouraged. Select just one and work that up to being "playable" and you've be welll rewarded...

    for your efforts.

  • October 09, 2007 Virtuoso transcriptions from old Europe

    I have volumes one and two of Friedman's Transkriptionen, which include works by Scarlatti, Rameau, Gluck, Couperin and others. But my favorite is his volume of transcriptions of Six Viennese Dances on tunes by the composer Eduard Gaertner, whose melodies are ravishingly Viennese. My encounter with Friedman in fact...

    came about through my effort to locate piano versions of Gaertner's beautiful Viennese Melody, here the last of Friedman's Six Viennese Dances, better known from its transcription for violin by Fritz Kreisler (who is to the violin what Friedman is to the piano) and its scoring for string orchestra. Friedman's transcriptions are highly recommended to all who love the late-nineteenth Romantics and their twentieth-century legacy. But be prepared - they are written for the piano virtuoso.
