Mozart's Piano Concertos

by

Show Synopsis

This early work on Mozart s Piano Concertos is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It contains analyses of the themes and structure of some of Mozart s greatest piano compositions. This is a fascinating work and thoroughly recommended for anyone interested in music theory. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork."

Classic book, out of date point of view

Girdlestone's analysis of the Mozart piano concerti was a classic in its time, and I used it for a project when I was in college back in 1971. Newer scholarship and points of view about 18th century performance practice have made his attitudes and point of view very dated...to borrow from another author writing about a similar subject, the viewpoint looks at Mozart through the fog of Beethoven and the rest of the 19th century, which is very inappropriate. If this had cost e a lot of money I'd be disappointed that I bought it now, but since it was inexpensive, even though it is an original printing and is in very good condition, I am glad to add it to my library.
