(Piano Solo Songbook). This collection illustrates the vigour and variety of modern piano music. These original compositions span standalone pieces, albums, suites and arrangements from talents as diverse as Igor Stravinsky, Francis Poulenc, Lennox Berkeley, Witold Lutoslawski, Hans Werner Henze, Peter Maxwell Davies, Philip Glass and Ludovico Einaudi. As well as these concert pieces, a number of works have been written specially for screen. From Michael Nyman's celebrated music for The Piano to Richard Rodney Bennett's score for the now rarely seen but superb 1980s miniseries of Tender Is The Night , there is ample proof of the richness added to international screen dramas by first-rate composers. These and over 100 more piano pieces make The Library of Modern Piano Music a true classic.
Original compositions and arrangements, including motion picture music excerpts.

The Contemporary Piano Literature series includes a selection of music written for children by Bartók, Gretchaninov, Kabalevsky, Prokofiev, Scott, Shostakovich and Stravinsky. In addition, the books contain pieces composed specifically for this series by Ross Lee Finney, David Kraehenbuehl, Douglas Moore, Elie Siegmeister, Alexandre Tansman and Alexander Tcherepnin. Short biographies and portraits help make composers come alive for the student. None of the music is so far in the vanguard that it is difficult to enjoy or understand.
As a young man , Tcherepnin was very much influenced by the great Rimsky - Korsakov . The piano music from this early period ( Bagatelles , Sonatine , and First Concerto ) is Russian in flavor and romantic in form .
