Now in paperback! Hugely popular in the 19th century, and starting to regain popularity now, the literature for multiple pianos is relatively unknown. J.S. Bach began the history of keyboard music for three or more players around 1730; Mozart contributed to the literature. Other important composers_Czerny, Moscheles, Smetana, Glazunov, Rachmaninoff_continued the tradition for particular pianists and occasions. Louis Moreau Gottschalk used a large number of pianos and pianists for his popularly acclaimed 'monster concerts' in the Americas. By the early 20th century, a mass of transcriptions and arrangements had accumulated. Later in the century, such important 20th-century composers as Ives, Stravinsky, Antheil, Orff, Dallapiccola, Milhaud, and others composed original works for the medium. Includes a comprehensive bibliography with an illustrative, detailed guide to the catalogue. Cloth edition originally published in 1993.
