      A great mixture of pieces here for all levels of ability. You have to have a pretty open mind for a book like this. The pieces are what we might call, an 'acquired taste'. That said there are some really lovely pieces, so long as you don't get put off by the look of some of them! Great value for money and excellently presented as always.

      I bought this album of piano music because it had one of the alternative pieces in it for the grade 3 piano exam, but was very surprised and intrigued by a lot of these modern compositions, some doing clever things, others leaving a lot to the performer! Fascinating!
