This textbook provides a unique resource to promote interest in and awareness of the available body of captivating concerto literature. It focuses on works suitable for pianists at the intermediate level, highlighting musically satisfying compositions from early Baroque masterworks through contemporary concertos written by today's best pedagogical composers. The book is arranged alphabetically by composer, with descriptions detailing information about publishers, tempo, key, instrumentation, and technical and musical content. The authors discuss the challenges and stylistic features of each selection and grade each movement using the 10-level grading system from Jane Magrath's The Pianist's Guide to Standard Teaching and Performance Literature, a model for the textbook. This is an essential reference work for those interested in student concertos.

    This book is a big disappointment. It was recommended by this site, & I wanted a good guide to Mozart's #20, K466. The book neglects most of the major concertos, the foundation of every artist's repertory: all 5 by Beethoven, mozart's half dozen or so mature ones, Both...

    of Brahms', both of Tchaikovsky's, all of Rachmaninov's, Prokofiev's & others; Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, Schumann's, Grieg's, & 2 by Mendelssohn. Perhaps it's intended for a wider, more general audience, MTA or other competitions, etc. rather than my specific purpose.
