The turn of the 20th century ushered in a new era in which several styles of art music existed simultaneously. As the printing press brought literature to the world, the piano helped bring music out of the exclusive domain of the aristocracy and disseminated all types of music to the general public. This edition presents piano solos representing Impressionism, Pointillism, Neo-Classicism, Expressionism and other post-romantic movements. Literature originating in Russia, England, France, Finland, Hungary, and North and South America is found in this collection. This library-quality edition is a complete version of Beyond the Romantic Spirit Books 1 and 2 by Nancy Bachus, conveniently packaged with CDs in one book . Early Intermediate to Early Advanced.

About A History of Piano Masterworks

This four-volume series summarizes the history of piano music and its influence on and by society from the outset of the 17th century through the early 20th century. Part I of each volume explores musicÕs relationship with literary, scientific, social, and political events. Part 2 focuses on the influences of great composers from that era. Nancy Bachus brilliantly employs an intergrated approach, creating an indispensible resource for every piano teacher, student, and music lover alike.
