20th and 21st Century Piano Works by 25 Composers Friday, December 21, 2012

The G. Schirmer Piano Collection contains 33 works by 25 composers from the 20th and 21st centuries.  If you or a friend love contemporary piano “classics”, this is the book to have!  Many pianists are at least somewhat familiar with Alexander Tcherepnin‘s Bagatelles Op. 5, Khatchaturian’s Toccata, Kabalevsky’s Four Preludes, Op. 5, or Muczynski’s Six Preludes, Op. 6.  How about trying Antheil‘s  “Sonatina (Death of the Machines)”,  Brubeck‘s  “Dad Plays the Harmonica”,  or Adams’ “China Gates”?   These are serious works, and each one has its challenges.  They are well worth the effort to learn.  This collection of sheet music has a wonderful blend of  newer compositions to explore.  For more information about this collectioon or any other piano compositons, contact us at 1-800-42-MUSIC, email us at, or visit our website at  http://www.keyboard .com
