From the Publisher

As the printing press brought literature to the world, the piano helped bring music out of the exclusive domain of the aristocracy and disseminated all types of music to the general public. Beyond the Romantic Spirit Book 2 presents 16 piano pieces from this exciting period, with music originating in Russia, England, France, Finland, Hungary, and North and South America. Intermediate to early-advanced.
