During much of the nineteenth century The Battle of Prague was one of the most often played and popular of all concert pieces. Audiences were much more likely to hear it than a sonata by Mozart, Beethoven or Schubert. It features in the literature of many writers, including Jane Austen and Mark Twain.
The original version was written for piano, violin, cello and optional drums. The version for piano solo, published here, was edited for publication by the great piano pedagogue Carl Czerny.
Queen's Temple Publications is very pleased to make this absolute gem available for audiences to delight in once again.
