The New International Edition of Suzuki Piano School, Volume 2 includes French, German and Spanish translations, new Romantic and 20th-century pieces, as well as a newly recorded CD performed by internationally renowned recording artist Seizo Azuma. Now the book and CD can be purchased together or separately. The contents have changed slightly with minimal reordering of the music. The Mozart Minuet and Bach Musette from the earlier edition were eliminated and replaced with two new 20th-century pieces by Bartók (noted below), and the Bach "Minuet in G Minor" (from J. S. Bach’s Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach) has been moved to Volume 3. Other improvements include a cleaner appearance with less editing and spacious new engravings, as well as more detailed titles that include the keys, sources, composer dates, and catalog numbers.

  • March 28, 2014 Nice edition

    I also like the slightly larger print, since Bk 2 students are working on their reading skills. While I also like the addition of the Bartok pieces, I do miss the Mozart Minuet and the extra Bach which was removed from this edition. Azuma plays with beauty and clarity that...

    is so important for the students to hear and be influenced by.

  • August 16, 2008 Book 2 is really for a late beginner

    These new editions are all slightly larger in format and print but not excessively so. The prep exercises are well placed to prepare a student for the new pattern and the repertoire is expanded to include more contemporary music, an important addition. The CDs are also new, but the book...

    is available without them.
