Howard Hanson's "Symphonic Rhapsody," Op. 14, for solo piano

Delighted to announce that my edition of Howard Hanson's "Symphonic Rhapsody," Op. 14, for solo piano, has been published by Carl Fischer and is now available here: It's also available via I discovered the work in manuscript in May, 2016, while at the Eastman School of Music doing research on my forthcoming book about Hanson's early career in California, "Before Eastman." The work is similar in difficulty to the Chopin first and third Ballades, the Brahms Rhapsodies, the Franck Prelude, Chorale and Fugue, and the Griffes Sonata. It takes approximately 10 minutes to perform and is a wonderful addition to the solo piano repertoire of the early 20th century. A gem in American piano literature!
