New Sheet Music Publications
Antonín Dvorák’s first Piano Quintet in A major was never published during his lifetime, with the manuscript copy being the sole available source. This Bärenreiter edition presents the musical text from the Complete Edition of the Works of Antonín Dvorák, Volume IV/11.
Volume Three of the Easy Concert Pieces series is aimed at advanced players who wish to refine their expression and personal interpretation. The pieces demand a great deal of dexterity and a high sense of rhythm, articulation and phrasing. Composers in this volume include Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schumann, Chopin, Debussy, Satie, and several others.
Play it again: Piano uses real pieces from the repertoire to teach specific techniques and tips, getting you playing fluently once again. This second book is for the more confident ‘former’ piano player or for those continuing their journey from Book 1. Each of the twenty-one pieces is accompanied by easy-to-understand practice tips, all designed to get your fingers speeding comfortably across the keys once again!
The Violin Play-Along series will help you play your favourite pieces quickly and easily. Just follow the music, listen to the online audio to hear how the violin should sound, and then play along using the separate backing tracks. With the lyrics included in the book, you can choose to sing along too! This volume includes eight songs from the hit film, including City of Stars, Another Day of Sun, and Mia & Sebastian's Theme.

Gabriel Fauré’s songs have long been riddled with misprints and inconsistencies. This first complete critical edition from Edition Peters is based on study of hundreds of manuscript and printed sources.

Also available for medium voice.
This second Bärenreiter volume of songs includes works from Dvořák's late period. Alongside cycles such as Love Songs, Op. 83 and Three Modern Greek Songs, Op. 50, it also contains some unknown and previously unpublished pieces: Lullaby and the posthumously published Song from The Smith of Lešetín.
