Product Details


In the late-19th and 20th centuries, composers produced a wealth of innovative piano music, venturing in new directions and seeking new sounds. The music produced during those transitional years is considered "20th-century music." Works by 37 composers are included in this 208-page comprehensive survey of 20th-century piano music; they range in difficulty from intermediate through early-advanced levels and cover the widest range of styles and idioms from that genre. Dr. Hinson has provided historical and biographical background and performance notes.
