Works for Piano Four-Hands – Volume III

1 Piano, 4 Hands

Series: Henle Music Folios Publisher: Henle Urtext Edition Format: Softcover Composer: Franz Schubert Editor: Willi Kahl

No other great composer has left so many works for piano four-hands as Franz Schubert – altogether 54 (32 of these with opus number): fantasies, dances, marches, variations, rondos, sonatas, etc. Playing music together, often in a social circle, was a precious pastime of Schubert's circle of friends. The young composer provided the musical background for these rousing concerts and exuberant performances. The pieces are chronologically arranged in the three Henle Urtext volumes showcasing Schubert's piano duets.

Volume III contains nine pieces dating from the last three years of Schubert's life, thus his mature works in this genre. This includes the famous Fantasie in f minor D 940 (see also the individual edition HN 180) and the equally beloved Duo in a minor D 947, which was first published posthumously with the nickname “Lebensstürme.” Both date from spring 1828.
