From the Publisher

Spectrum 2 builds on the enormous success enjoyed by Spectrum, first published by ABRSM in 1996. This new volume presents 30 specially-commissioned miniatures for pianists, written by leading composers born or now based in Great Britain. Presenting a vibrant diversity of musical language and thought, Spectrum 2 reflects the breadth of current compositional trends and will serve as an invaluable introduction to contemporary music. Spectrum 2 contains pieces that are easier and shorter than those in the original Spectrum; they range in standard from Grade 1 to Grade 6 and are a concise and true representation of each composer's style. They are suitable for amateur and professional pianists of all ages.
