You're never too young to play Urtext! The Wiener Urtext Album contains well-known and lesser known original compositions from Bach to Schoenberg which are intended to diversify second- and third-year piano lessons. The pupil shall get accustomed to original compositions in 'Urtext' editions as early as possible and, at the same time, be encouraged to creative playing. Valuable help is provided by the short index of composers at the end of the volume containing links to Internet pages on the composers which shall encourage the pupil to hunt up further information. As in other Wiener Urtext editions, this volume too contains the obligatory facsimile page. Compared with modern notation, it can get both teachers and pupils onto fascinating expeditions.
(…) In the urge for enterprising teaching material, these potboilers can easily be overlooked: at a stroke, this book supplies enough old faithfuls to keep pupils (and their grandparents) happy for years. An excellent middle-of-the-road compendium, yielding to curent click-'n'-learn thinking by adding lists of internet sites on all composers save Petzold. Michael Round in: Music Teacher, 03/06
