This beautifully engraved edition includes works by the top 20 Impressionistic composers, an extensive foreword with historical information on each composer, specific performance notes for each pieces and a look at the compositional techniques used by Impressionists. The comb binding creates a lay-flat book that is perfect for study and performance. In the companion DVD-lecture, Dr. Hinson explores four aspects of Impressionism: early influences, performance techniques, musical characteristics and specific repertoire from the anthology.
