A sumptuous selection of the very best Keyboard music of the early Romantic era by composers ranging from Schubert to Chopin and beyond, all presented in one superb volume for the solo Piano.

The music of the Romantic era is characterised by progressive innovations in both tonal and formal expression, both in the compositions of the salons and concert halls, and of the church. The works of Chopin, Liszt and Schubert have become absolutely essential repertoire for any serious Piano student, forever pushing the boundaries of diatonic harmony, timing and texture into evermore complex worlds of emotion.

Every piece in this anthology is rich in heritage, and familiar to the ears of music lovers the world over. Take this opportunity to transform your repertoire - the music has been expertly adapted to appeal to the intermediate soloist whilst retaining all the beauty and character of the original works. There's simply no better way to discover the music of the masters.

Mansfield GB Nothing
An excellent collection.
Large format very easy to see.
Book doesn't lie flat, so is difficult to keep pages open. Would be much better if it was spiral bound.

Rating Review
Customer Rating An excellent selection which gives new and returning pianists a chance to extend their repetoire.
A ring binder style of book would improve the item.

Customer Rating A very comprhensive collection of Romantic Classics, if only the manufacturers could bind them in such a way so that it is possible to keep the book open at a particular page.
Delivery service excellent from Musicroom as usual
