Making available ensemble piano music hereto forgotten



Editions Poole will be resuming business October 2016

Editions Poole offers a fine selection of piano ensemble repertoire, specializing in transcriptions and eight hand piano music.  Much of the well-known symphonic works of the classical music masters, for example, Beethoven and Brahms, has been transcribed for piano offering pianists the ability to first-hand experience the rich panoply of classical music.  Nearly all of the popular major symphonic works await the eager sight-reader.

My editions are derived from works which have lapsed into the public domain within the United States and may not be found anywhere except in private collections or libraries.  I offer music which is unknown to pianists today because it simply is not available and has not been offered for sale since the 1800s and early 20th Century; moreover, I offer some of the standard transcriptions for free download.  I make available in high quality performance-ready editions that which has hereto been lost to antiquity or otherwise reasonably available.  I employ state of the art technology to provide you digital editions that are the finest quality that can be reasonably deployed over the Internet.
