Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 2

I am looking for sheet music of the complete (original) version of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 2 in G major, opus 44. I am looking for the unabridged version [with no cuts to movt. II]. I am looking for the two pianos score by Tchaikovsky. [I already have the full orchestral score]. I am not looking for the 1897 second edition heavily edited by Ziloti.

It looks like has the abridged edition published by C.F. Peters (P04644):

Also, I found another digital version to download from

I'm not sure what version that is. Could anyone please let me know where I might purchase [or download] the unabridged complete original version two pianos score? Thank you!

BC Dunnington

Having downloaded the "Every Note" site i can verify that this is not the complete unrevised version. A large segment was removed from the second movement for example. I have a partial copy of the unrevised version by Belwin Mills Publishing Company formerly of Melville New York. As this is a library copy you can be sure its been out of print for a while. Ive been able to locate Belwin Mills but it appears they no long publish this piece. So the search goes on. Possibly the Tchaikovsky Museum in Klin may be able to help you.....

Albert Gasparo

The score Mr Gasparo was referring to is a reprint of the edition first published in the 1950s as part of the Tchaikovsky complete works project (Polnoe sobranie sochinenii). This series was reissued c.1971 by the firm of Edwin F Kalmus of New York, whose body of scores were sold to Belwyn Mills in the mid–1970s. The reprints omit the editorial preface and some of the notes/appendices.

I'm very pleased to report that someone has scanned the two-piano version of Tchaikovsky's Second Piano Concerto, and this was forwarded directly to Mr Dunnington yesterday. We do not have permission to reproduce it here, but a similar scan may eventually appear among the increasingly large collection of Tchaikovsky scores at the IMSLP/Petrucci Music Library:
