Library of Piano Works, Vol. 1 (Book & CD)
Warner Bros. Publications presents a new series featuring the works of Ludwig van Beethoven. Donald Beattie, founder and president of The Beethoven Society for Pianists, along with his wife Delayna, has compiled and edited these collections based on years of teaching experience and their love of Beethoven's works. Each volume offers a comprehensive look into the works of the master, and includes performance notes plus a section entitled "Beethoven As Our Teacher," providing interesting stories about the composer's life -- perfect for recital programs. All pieces have been carefully edited with the student in mind. With this library, students will grow both technically and musically through the powerful pieces of Beethoven. Volume I contains twelve pieces for the early-intermediate student, including numerous dances, folk songs, studies, and a few independent pieces.
