    Too many lines per page = small print. A bit "maudlin" choice of worn out oldies.

    This is a wonderful collection of favorites, some quite challenging but worth the effort. I expect to spend a good bit of time with this album!

  • April 09, 2009 A classic

    Like many of the reviewers, I grew up with this album and am now purchasing it again because my copy is tattered beyond belief (and recently displaced). It is for the advanced intermediate and advanced student. It is also an EXCELLENT source book for a piano teacher, because it offers...

    a wide variety of original, seldom heard pieces which are relatively short. AND... it offers some composers who are NEVER heard (i.e. Palmgren, Cui, Chaminade) who SHOULD be heard more often, as their music is beautiful. This is program music of the highest nature. And this album is STILL a treasure. I'm not surprised that Schirmer is continuing it. It will be around when WE are all down under, as my grandmother used to say... I agree with a previous reviewer that it could be a good idea to install a spiral binding...

  • December 10, 2008 My favorite compliation book

    Don't be dissuaded by the dorky cover - this is the best collection from different composers I've found. My first copy (from the '70's) was worn to shreds, so I was happy to find it still in print. Great for adv-intermediate to advanced pianists.
