Beethovens Fifth Symphony is one of the most recognizable pieces of music ever written. With numerous appearances in popular culture including movies, television, rock and disco, it stands alone as the most popular of Beethovens nine symphonies. This special treat will enable musicians of all ages to experience the genius of Beethovens most significant work as a solo or any assorted instrumental combination as this piece is arranged for Trumpet, Clarinet, Alto Sax, Trombone & Flute or Violin in accommodating keys with piano accompaniment. This famous Beethoven classic is a great addition to our ever strong instrumental solo library. Beethovens Fifth was first performed in Vienna in 1808, but was not initially recognized as an innovative piece of music. This was mostly due to poor conditions at this 1st performance that included a frigid-cold theater and a poorly prepared orchestra. Even though the debut left critics with mixed opinions, people soon realized it was unlike anything they had heard before. Robert Schumann, a German composer and influential music critic, wrote; this symphony invariably wields its power over men of every age like those great phenomena of nature. This symphony, too, will be heard in future centuries, nay, as long as music and the world exist.

Dr. Lawrence Golan's edition of Bach's masterpieces for solo violin combines the authenticity and accuracy of a Scholarly Urtext Edition with the practicality and helpfulness of a Performing Edition. A facsimile of Bach's autograph manuscript was used in the preparation of this edition and the composer's intentions have been preserved to the last detail. Of particular note is the fact that all stems have been beamed together as they appear in the autograph manuscript. This is of great importance when making interpretive decisions regarding dotted rhythms. Helpful fingering and bowing suggestions are provided by the editor, but are clearly distinguished from Bach's original notation, allowing the performer the freedom to accept or reject any given suggestion. The volume comes complete with Dr. Golan's essay "Performing Bach: Dotted Rhythms and Trills in the Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin," which also includes scholarly discussions of vibrato, fingerings, bowing styles, and ritardandos in Baroque music. The inclusion of this comprehensive study of Baroque performance practices makes this edition a must for any violinist interested in performing the Bach Sonatas and Partitas in an historically informed manner.
