From the Publisher

This three-volume series of piano music by women composers is a progressive compendium of educational literature with a broad repertoire from the 17th century to the present day. For each piece, the editor has written short instructions with rehearsal tips as well as biographical notes on the women composers. The collection covers all levels of difficulty from easy (volume 1) to medium (volume 2) to difficult (volume 3) and is an indispensable addition to lessons and concerts.



“Spanswick has done us all an immense favour by researching, compiling and presenting these fabulous collections, which unquestionable represent a milestone in music publishing." Andrew Eales - Pianodao

"Melanie Spanswick’s Women Composers: A Graded Anthology is utterly superb, and will surely be of significant interest to pianists everywhere.” Andrew Eales - Pianodao
