From the Publisher
The etudes presented here, which are to be played 'con espressione' i.e.'expressively' are all wonderful pieces which can only reproduce the Romantic espressivo style in a virtually pure form if played with full mastery of finger, tone and articulation technology. Many of the pieces here are suitable for inclusion as solos in a Romantic concert programme, as the composers of this period have left us few solo compositions.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
