      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.

      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.
