This collection provides a historical selection of 40 original piano pieces which have been influenced by extra-musical incidents or ideas: It begins with scenes from nature, describes the fascination of rain, portrays the figure of the shepherd, wanders to 'moon', 'sleep' and 'dream', and concludes with the theme of 'movement' which is visible and audible either at sporting activities and in technical devices or on travels. It is quite fascinating to see that composers such as Burgmüller or Grieg, Beethoven, Debussy, R. Schumann, Tchaikovsky, Villa-Lobos, Satie, Couperin, Martinu, Mendelssohn or Mussorgsky and many others see and musically describe the same themes quite differently.
