In 1978 the music world commemorated the 150th anniversary of Schubert's death, and his great symphonies were widely played and recorded. In this one volume are Schubert's four most popular and most often played symphonies in full score, including the Symphony No. 9, which, according to "Grove's Dictionary, " is "universally admitted to be his greatest masterpiece." The symphonies are reproduced complete and unabridged from the famous and scholarly Breitkopf & Hartel series, a large and eminently readable edition, and are edited by Brahms. No other single-volume edition of these works is currently available.Included in this book are: Symphony No. 4 ("Tragic") in C MinorSymphony No. 5 in B-flat Major (also known as "Symphony without Trumpets and Drums")Symphony No. 8 ("Unfinished) in B MinorSymphony No. 9 ("Great) in C MajorThe music has been reproduced in a size large enough to be read easily, with large noteheads, wide margins (for notes, annotations, etc.), and on opaque paper with sturdy, sewn bindings. Pages lie flat and will not fall out. The edition is practical for almost any use, whether as a study guide, a reference, or simply a companion for your greater musical enjoyment."
