Abstract A long with "careful judgement and genuine love of the subject" (Library Journal), David Dubal brings unparalleled expertise as a concert pianist, Juilliard faculty member, and former music director of a major classical music station to this third edition of his definitive guide to the piano. Here are enlightening profiles of histroy's greatest concert pianists from Clementi and Mozart to the major artists of the twentieth century. Here, too, in alphabetical order by composer, are hte masterpieces of the literature, solo and concerto, a discussion of the place of each piece in the composer's oeuvre, and a list of recorded performances that "show the composition in its most diverse moods." Updated to include more than seventy additional pianists and hundreds of new CDs, this is a guide piano teachers, concert-goers, and other devotees of keyboard virtuosity should find "among the best read and most useful books on their personal reference shelves" (Booklist).
