Perelozhenie dlia dvukh fortepiano [Rhapsody in Blue … transcribed for two pianos].Moscow: Gosudarstvennoe muzykal'noe izdatel'stvo [State Music Publishers], 1956 Stock Code: 107399
Apparently the first Russian edition of Rhapsody in Blue, and as was often the case with Muzizdat publications of contemporary Western music, it is possible that it was a piracy. Uncommon, no copy traced on WorldCat. Introduction by the leading soviet musicologist Grigori Schneerson.
Quarto (287 x 222 mm). Wire-stitched in the original printed wrappers.
Staples a touch rusted, just a little rubbed on the spine and at the wrap edges, pale toning, last leaf creased, overall very good.
