Contemporary Piano Literature, Book 4
Ed. Frances Clark and Louise Goss
Frances Clark Library for Piano Students
Piano - Frances Clark Library
The Contemporary Piano Literature series is devoted to smaller keyboard works written by composers who have achieved prominence in the 20th century, many specifically commissioned for the Frances Clark Library. Book 4 features vibrant solos by Bartók, Gretchaninov, Kabalevsky, Prokofiev, Stravinsky, Douglas Moore, Ross Lee Finney, and Alexander Tcherepnin. Short biographies and attractive portraits help make composers come alive for students of all ages. None of the music is so far in the vanguard that it is difficult to enjoy or understand.
