Descriere:

This volume contains the complete sheet music for Charles V. Stanford's "Piano Trio, Op. 158", a 1918 composition dedicated to the memory of his colleague's two sons who were killed in the Great War. Subtitled 'Per astra ad aspera' ('To the stars through struggle'), it is characterized by dramatic gestures, which are especially prevalent in the first and final movements.

Sir Charles Villiers Stanford (1852 - 1924) was an Irish composer, conductor, and teacher of music. He was educated at the University of Cambridge and continued his studies in Berlin and Leipzig. He was a very influential composer, responsible for making Cambridge University Musical Society an internationally-acclaimed organisation. Stanford was also a profuse composer, producing a large corpus of work in many genres; however, he is perhaps best remembered for his Anglican choral works for church performance. His music eventually became overshadowed by that of Edward Elgar and a number of his former pupils in the in the 20th century.

Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of musical notation.
