Isle of Wight GB Pianist, organist, composer
This book has a wonderful collection of pieces by Russian composers. It is ideal for pianists who are grade 6 and above as some of the music is quite challenging! However, if you like big, full, sweeping melodies and glorious rich accompaniment, this is the book for you.

Musicroom 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.
