The 20th Century – Intermediate Level

25 Pieces by Barber, Bartók, Kabalevsky, Khachaturian, Prokofiev,

Series: Schirmer Performance Editions Publisher: G. Schirmer, Inc. Format: Softcover Composer: Various Editor: Richard Walters

The 20th Century series presents music by some of the greatest composers of the modern era, composers who wrote a full range of music for orchestra, voices, piano and chamber ensembles, in the great and large forms. But they also valued music education, and composed interesting music to foster a stdent pianist's progress. The pieces by these composers lead a student not only to technical proficiency, but also to become a more fully formed, imaginative musician. When a great talent turns attention to writing a short piece of limited difficulty level for students, it is approached with the same aesthetics, temperament, tastes and creative invention applied when composing a symphony, opera or concerto. These exquisite miniatures are complete works of timeless art. Through them a master musician of the past indirectly teaches a progressing musician of the present and the future.
