Desribed as one of Franck's tightest and most finished works, the Variations symphoniques of 1885 nevertheless got off to a slow start. The premiere, given in Paris on May 1, 1886 with the famous pianist Louis Diemer as soloist and the composer at the podium, was given little notice at the time. Even a second performance in January of 1887 didn't help. Only after the composer's death and the advocacy of Franck's students D'Indy, Duparc, Chausson and Dukas was the piece accorded a spot in the repertoire. The present study score, in a large readable format, is a digitally restored reissue of the first edition published in 1893 by Enoch. Unlike so many of the on-demand scores now available, this one comes with all the pages and the images have been thoroughly checked to make sure it is readable. As with all PLP scores a percentage of each sale is donated to the amazing online archive of free music scores and recordings, IMSLP - Petrucci Music Library.
