“Especially appealing teaching pieces are the selections from Beach's Children's Carnival, Op. 25; Children's Album, Op. 36; and From Six To Twelve, Op. 119. Also notable are the spirited Baroque-style dances from Chaminade's Album d'enfants, Op. 123, a collection which resembles Kabalevksy's pedagogical works...The pieces by Farrenc and Carreño are more Romantic and lyrical in style...The pieces in theis volume are remarkably original and diverse, and offer an important and much-needed contribution to the intermediate piano literature.”--Clavier Companion

“Smith's extensive research lends credibility to this volume. Beautifully presented and visually appealing, the layout is so well spaced and formatted the score is a pleasure to read.”--American Music Teacher

    All the pieces in this collection are of the highest quality. I was very happy to find these gems of beautiful pieces! The pieces are at intermediate - late intermediate level. Some are harder than the rest like Fanny Mendelssohn's Fugue. Students could enjoy studying out of this book for...

    a few years (and enjoy playing these pieces for many years!) These composers should be better known and part of the standard teaching repertoire. It's great to have this easily-available, reasonably-priced collection, along with "At the Piano with Women Composers".
