Matthew Shaftel has assembled a well-researched critical edition of select Webern piano works, which together speak volumes of the composer's compositional growth over his early years. Satz and Rondo represent the Romanticism which framed Webern's writing, even while he studied with Schoenberg, while the short KinderstA 1/4 ck is the first of his dodecaphonic (twelve-tone) works, a relatively simple piece for children. Shaftel includes a thorough discussion of the three pieces, along with complete critical notes about the edition. For intermediate to advanced pianists.
