This Piano Album offers a wealth of discoveries and stimulating pieces from twenty composers of the 20th and 21st centuries. These diverse pieces, by composers working in quite different styles, impressively demonstrate how topical and inspiring the piano is for contemporary composers. Their works invite you on a voyage of discovery - using the piano's 88 keys and occasionally its inside workings!

Players experience the anatomy of an individual note, grasp what"touch"means, and experience the piano as a continent of undreamt-of musical possibilities. The pieces which result from improvisation encourage experimentation in the area of spontaneous music-making. Many of the works included here were composed recently especially for this unusual album, or are published for the first time. The cover has been designed by the artist"rosalie", reflecting the lively and varied contents. The collection includes a broad spectrum of repertoire ranging from easy to more demanding works.

- A varied and attractively presented album, with cover design by"rosalie"
- Contemporary music for beginners to advanced pianists
- With suggestions for your own improvisation
- Includes information (Ger/Eng) on the pieces

    These contemporary pieces explore what most of us would consider the outside edges of music with unusual notation, artistic interpretation of rhythms, etc. I am a piano teacher who owns a lot of print music, but I returned this collection because it was too expensive for the little use I...

    could make of it.
