(explanatory note by Schoenberg), 99, [i] (blank) pp. Printed dedication to head of title: "To Henry Clay Shriver." Annotation in pencil, probably by former owner, to head of title: "New York [?]Hif de R. Sept. 1949;" occasional annotations in pencil to music. Wrappers slightly browned, stained at edge, spine slightly frayed. First Edition. Rufer (Eng.) p. 70. Ringer p. 319. Tetsuo Satoh pp. 27-28. The full score was published in 1946. "Schönberg's Piano Concerto, op. 42, which was originally commissioned by his former student Oscar Levant, is conceived as a single-movement form displaying the characteristics of a multimovement sonata cycle. Like the program of the concerto it divides into four parts. The opening melody of the Concerto, lasting thirty-nine bars, presents the four modes of the tone row in the following order: basic set, inversion of retrograde, retrograde, and inversion... The manuscript includes the four parts of the programme (which - according to Schönberg scholarship - is clearly autobiographical), each accompanied by a musical example from one of the four sections of the concerto."
