Music of our time! Soundsnew is a collection of works for solo piano from the masters of the 20th and 21st centuries. Selected for the young and with young hands in mind, these pieces are also suitable for older students and adults wishing to approach new music via this easier material. The technical levels approximate books II and III of Bartók's Mikro-kosmos. The pieces are presented chronologically according to the birth dates of the composers who include: Béla Bartók; Anton Webern; Jenö Takács; György Kurtág; Friedrich Cerha; Anthony Hedges; Arvo Pärt; Peter Roggenkamp; Richard Rodney Bennett; Ian Wilson; Roxanna Panufnik and Johannes Maria Staud. Works from these last three young composers were especially written for this collection along with a piece from the editor himself, Peter Roggenkamp. Explanations of markings and notation along with performance tips are included with each piece. This is truly a wonderful resource of piano works from the modern masters.
