Expertly guiding pianists for over 25 years

Guide to the Pianist's Repertoire continues to be the go-to source for piano performers, teachers, and students. Newly updated and expanded with more than 250 new composers, this incomparable resource expertly guides readers to solo piano literature and provides answers to common questions: What did a given composer write? What interesting work have I never heard of? How difficult is it? What are its special musical features? How can I reach the publisher?

New to the fourth edition are enhanced indexes identifying black composers, women composers, and compositions for piano with live or recorded electronics; a thorough listing of anthologies and collections organized by time period and nationality, now including collections from Africa and Slovakia; and expanded entries to account for new material, works, and resources that have become available since the third edition, including websites and electronic resources. The "newest Hinson" will be an indispensible guide for many years to come.

It has been said that the world of music in all its cultural realizations has no end. To this axiom one might add that it is equally true for the vast body of piano literature. The astonishing quantity of music composed for solo piano over the past three centuries must certainly have exceeded the imagination of the first composers for the instrument. Irwin Freundlich in the preface to the first edition of this book noted, “no single musician can successfully encompass the entire piano repertoire. It is, in fact, by far the largest devoted to any instrument, second only in scope to that for voice. Not only is it beyond the capability of the repertoire, but it is also equally difficult to have even a cursory acquaintance with its scope and be able to sift out material for study and performance from the mass of works accumulated over the years without some organized guiding hand to lead the way.” It was for this latter purpose that the Guide to the Pianist's Repertoire came into existence in 1973.
The original purpose of the Guide has remained unchanged since the first edition: to make available in one practical listing the important piano literature. New material has been added with each edition, while some repertoire has been deleted, either because it is out of print or because the authors have changed their ideas about certain pieces. A certain amount of subjectivity is unavoidable in a work of this nature, and we hope readers will bear this in mind as the book is consulted.
This fourth edition updates available resources for well-known composers and introduces both older and newer composers of merit. Not only have publishers in the first decade of the twenty-first century been interested in new works, but they have also been reissuing works long out of print. Continuing interest in reference and performing collections of complete works has yielded both familiar and not-so-familiar names in recent years. The Italian rivalry of two complete editions of the music of Clementi is an exceptional case in point. In contrast, lesser known would be the works of the Swedish composer Eduard Tubin, whose piano literature recently became the subject of a complete-edition series.
Works considered for the Guide cover the period from 1700 to the present. A few works predating this period have been included, however, only when they can be effectively realized on the piano. As a rule, transcriptions are excluded, though a few exceptions have been made when, in the authors' opinion, they are highly effective. Information about this fascinating genre may be found in The Pianist's Guide to Transcriptions, Arrangements, and Paraphrases (Indiana University Press, 1990) by Maurice Hinson.
Our understanding of Western music and especially piano literature has quietly been changing since the initial work on this text began a half century ago. Newer editions of historic works, especially urtext, from the Baroque through the nineteenth century have clarified and given greater insights into the works of these two hundred–plus years. Times changed more slowly during these centuries, and the ease with which stylistic tendencies could be traced has been rather straightforward. By contrast, the twentieth century has been an age of pluralism and compression, completely unsettled, with an undertow pulling maverick composers into realms unimagined while counterbalanced by composers dedicated to traditional craftsmanship. The number of -isms during the century proliferated and changed our general perception of music as we watched some come and go.
Twenty-first-century musicians will have the advantage and benefit of years of labor by scholars and performers who have strived to arrive at definitive texts by master composers. At the same time, a word of caution should be noted concerning the increased availability of older editions through the internet, many now freely distributed. As important as older editions have been, and in a few instances will continue to be, these should not become substitutes for scholarly editions. The search for each composer's musical intention requires a careful consideration of all available resources, especially those which have become available in recent years, and which in many instances have changed our approach to the literature itself.
Acknowledgments: Many individuals have generously given the authors assistance in the preparation of this and previous editions of the Guide. For the fourth edition, we gratefully acknowledge the assistance of librarians John Burch of Campbellsville University, Martha Powell of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and Karen Little of the University of Louisville, and their staffs. Additional assistance was provided in area studies by Izumi Miyoshi (Japan), Joanna Ximenes (Brazil), María Milagros Boso Galli (Argentina), Kees Weggelaar (The Netherlands), and Denine LeBlanc (Kentucky); in linguistics by Sida Hodoroabă-Roberts; and in typesetting by Anne Gibbs.
Without the generous assistance of numerous publishers, this volume would not be possible. Special appreciation goes to Johannes Mundry of Bärenreiter, Pietro Spada of Boccaccini and Spada, Anne Sobel of Carl Fischer, Scott Wollschleger of European American Music, Marina Furtado of FJH Music, Erin Mathieus of Hal Leonard, Norbert Gertsch, Sigrun Jantzen, and Ulrike Lucht-Lorenz of G.
