Edited by Nancy Bachus


From the Publisher

The turn of the 20th century ushered in a new era in which several styles of art music existed simultaneously. In Beyond the Romantic Spirit Book 1, students can recapture the spirit of the environment in which composers lived, created and performed, and learn about influential events of this era. This edition presents 19 piano solos representing Impressionism, Pointillism, Neo-Classicism, Expressionism and other post-romantic movements. Early to late-intermediate.
