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.

    Difficulty Level:
  • October 09, 2011 an excellent compilation

    A fine collection with clear and easy to read print. PLEASE don't refer to classical pieces as songs. Songs have words and pieces do not unless they are specifically titled "songs without words", for example Mendelssohn.

    Difficulty Level:
  • December 09, 2008 Excellent intro to the style

    This book provides a good selection of 20th century art music. Lots of good editing make this book easy to use, and there aren't too many finger numbers- just enough to help with the musicality.
