The Top Ten Contemporary Classical Pieces To Play On Piano is part of a series that has been specially designed to help pianists of all levels to find the repertoire they really want to play. This volume contains 10 of the very best contemporary pieces for solo Piano.

Some people associate classical music very much with the historic past, but there is a wealth of contemporary music out there from a new wave of distinctive and adventurous writers, including plenty of fantastic pieces written for solo Piano. Composers include the remarkable Ludovico Einaudi, whose music, rich in spiritual simplicity, has taken the musical public by storm; Jóhann Jóhannsson, who set the classical system to one side as a teenager to kick loose in indie bands; and multi-instrumentalist and composer Yann Tiersen, who similarly broke his Violin aged thirteen and never looked back!

Whether you are already familiar with some of these composers or not, we are confident you will love playing their beautiful music. Often simple in style, there is something magical about the way these writers make the Piano sound, so delve in and enjoy...

      I bought this for my daughter following her Grade 5 piano. She had already heard some of the pieces ( Einaudi & Tiersen) and enjoyed their style. Her piano teacher also thought they were good pieces and suggested she might buy the book herself for other students. She also said it was good to expose music students to contempary styles as it helps with GCSE music and composition elements.
