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.
