Recital Winners Volume 1 contains 10 pieces of early-intermediate through late-intermediate level masterworks from all stylistic periods. Chosen based on their appeal to the showmanship in students, the pieces are impressive, fun to play and exploit a broad range of the piano's capabilities. A CD recording by Valery Lloyd-Watts is also available.
