We’re extremely proud of our rich tradition of high-quality piano music and are constantly adding new and exciting publications to the list. We’ve created the Faber Music Piano Catalogue to help you to explore our extensive catalogue. We hope that this resource will help you find out more about the titles you already know, and highlight those hidden gems or new publications that you may not have come across before. And because we wanted to give you more than a catalogue, we’ve incorporated some elements from our popular Pianofforte to provide some extra insight from our composers and authors.
contemporary Jonathan Harvey In this dazzling 3-minute work from one of British music’s most innovative voices, brilliant shards of sound spectra collide with highly accented and rhythmic material in the bass. Written for the ABRSM in 1995, it is a fantastic introduction to Harvey’s wonderfully highspirited musical imagination. 0571518982 ff Jonathan Harvey £7.50 €9.81 Oliver Knussen Prayer Bell Sketch is a hauntingly beautiful study in weight and measure, resonance and reverberation. Lasting 6-minutes, it recollects and rearranges a few clear, bell-like harmonies into an enchanting, deeply personal, statement. 0571519520 Prayer Bell Sketch Oliver Knussen £9.99 €13.97 Colin Matthews This highly contrasted set of pieces from Matthews’ suite for piano dates from the late 70s. From the percussive Toccata, the hushed Nocturne and the aggressive and volatile Scherzo, this is music of exhilarating expressive scope which displays a dazzling grasp of the instrument. 0571505554 Toccata, Nocturne and Scherzo George Benjamin £12.99 €16.78 David Matthews David Matthews’ charming Variations for Piano comprise twenty four variations on an original folk-like theme. After a first group of exhilaratingly fast variations, the 15-minute work continues with slower, sometimes blues-inspired, music. 0571518621 Variations for Piano David Matthews £8.99 €13.04 Olivier Messiaen This recently rediscovered Messiaen work takes its name from the Sub Alpine Warbler. Filled with the bird’s song, the 11-minute piece dates from 1961 and was possibly intended to be part of a second Catalogue d’Oiseaux. A fascinating addition to the repertoire. 057153905X Le Fauvette Passerinette Oliver Messiaen £10.99 €14.91 28 Faber Music Piano Catalogue
