Olson: Essential Keyboard Repertoire, Volume 2 Book & CD (Piano Solo)
This is an excellent volume compiled for the advancing intermediate student, containing 75 intermediate-level selections in their original form ranging from the Baroque to Modern periods. Volume 2 is the natural outgrowth of the initial volume in this series. The technical level is somewhat more advanced and the range of expression is appropriately wider and more challenging than in Volume 1.
