The arrangements are intended for the intermediate to advanced player but the book will give any pianists a unique practical and historical insight into Russia's immense contribution to the international world of music.

Customer Reviews


Rating Review
Customer Rating A collection of mainly well-known, but also some rarer compositions, by a well chosen selection of Russian composers. A number of pieces are difficult to find as individual publications. All of the music is well presented and clearly printed. The whole collection is very good value for money and I am pleased to recommend it.
