The American Collection: 38 Classic Compositions Arranged For Solo Piano, a definitive collection of music for solo piano.

A superb 160 page volume packed with solo Piano arrangements of great American music from the 19th to 20th centuries. By composers including Barber, MacDowell, Sousa, Joplin, Bacharach and Glass.

A specially-written foreword places the music in historical and national context and includes biographical details of many of the featured composers. The arrangements are intended for the intermediate to advanced pianist, but the book will give any player a unique practical and historical insight into America's immense contribution to the international world of music.
