Prokoffiev Piano Concerto 1,2,3 (2 pianos)

ピアノ協奏曲を作曲した。さて、これを初演のステージにかけるにはどうするか。スポンサーに資金を求めるには、どんな作品なのか聴かせて了承を得る、そのためにピアノ伴奏版を演奏するとしよう。オーケストラの総譜がたくさん売れることはないが、ピアノ伴奏版の楽譜なら需要がありますよ、と楽譜出版社から依頼され、ピアノ2台用の編曲をする。いずれにしても2台のピアノで演奏するピアノ音楽作品である。作曲家自身によるリダクションであれば、なおさらその音楽の骨格は本質的なものと言える。協奏曲の練習用楽譜と捉えては作曲家に対して申し訳ないというものだ。セルゲイ・プロコフィエフ(Сергей Прокофьев 1891-1953)は自身が優れたピアニストであったので、これらの一部を或いは全てを売り込み相手に聴かせた筈だ。協奏曲を弾くピアニストや音楽学校の練習室だけではなく、もっとリサイタル等でも演奏されてしかるべき作品だ。

    Prokoffiev Piano Concerto 1,2,3 (2 pianos)
     He composed a piano concerto. Now, how to stage the premiere of this? In order to seek funding from sponsors, he would have to give them an opportunity to hear what the piece is about and get their approval, so he would play the piano accompaniment version. The orchestral score will not sell a lot, but the piano accompaniment version will be in demand, and the score publisher will ask him to arrange the score for two pianos. In any case, it is a piano music piece to be played by two pianos. If it is a reduction by the composer himself, the framework of the music is even more essential. It would be a disservice to the composer to regard it as a practice score for a concerto. Sergei Prokofiev (Сергей Прокофьев 1891-1953), himself an excellent pianist, would have made some or all of these available to his clients. These works should be played more often in recitals, not only by concerto pianists or in the rehearsal rooms of music schools.
