35 Pieces for Piano Solo on the Quirky Side. BH Piano. Collection, Classical. 56 pages. Boosey & Hawkes #M060119033. Published by Boosey & Hawkes (HL.48019603).

Item Number: HL.48019603

9x12 inches. Piano Moods Series.

Quirky juxtapositions and intriguing pieces of music. Contemporary miniatures sit next to classic repertoire from Mozart and Tchaikovsky. Dance movements by Telemann, Schubert, Rameau, Jirovec and Zilcher all have something unexpected about them, although they are technically straightforward and a joy to play.

“The publisher Boosey & Hawkes has created a most attractive lay-out for these 95 solo piano pieces, most of which are at the intermediate level...I thoroughly enjoyed the contrasting styles in each volume. All periods from the 16th-century to modern are present. The volumes include some familiar works, such as Franck's 'Doll's Complaint', but a clear majority of the pieces are new and at times refreshing.”--American Music Teacher
