The Boosey & Hawkes Solo Piano Collection provides the intermediate pianist with exciting repertoire in accessible yet authentic arrangements.

Ballet & Other Dances brings together a huge breadth of repertoire from around the world in a fine collection of 30 well-known themes from the stage.Popular Russian favourites such as Shostakovich’s “Jazz Suite No. 2”, Prokofieff’s “Romeo and Juliet” and Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker Suite” sit alongside American modern classics including Bernstein’s “West Side Story” and Copland’s “Billy The Kid”. Works by Ginastera and Piazzolla add a South American flavour, whilst pieces by Bartók, Britten, Quilter, Strauss, Whelan and others reflect the rich diversity of European music for dance.

"The music is pianistically written and there's enough variety across the entire series to suit all tastes. They would be valuable as tuneful sight-reading material for the advanced student, too."
Pianist Magazine, April 2014
