5th Edition

Piano Repertoire Guide: Intermediate and Advanced Literature

Cathy Albergo and Reid Alexander

This new Fifth Edition of the Piano Repertoire Guide is an informative and essential teaching reference for independent piano teachers as well as students in piano pedagogy, keyboard literature, and piano ensemble classes. Building on past editions, its primary purpose is to overview piano teaching materials in both solo and ensemble genres from the Early Intermediate through the Early Advanced level.

Organized by style period (Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Contemporary, including impressionistic, pedagogical, and jazz literature), the Solo Literature section features many new entries and annotations about valuable collections essential for the piano studio. The Ensemble Music section includes new and updated listings from early intermediate Gillock to challenging Messiaen duets as well as music for two pianos, multiple pianos, and digital pianos. Additional special sections focus on holiday literature, selected keyboard concerti, and materials for adult study.

Through recommendations on a suggested teaching order for pieces within a collection (e.g., Bach’s Two-part Inventions, Debussy’s Préludes, etc.) and the authors’ designation of highly successful teaching literature, this new edition is a valuable resource that will help all teachers select solo and ensemble music to match their students’ talents and interests.

NEW features of this edition:

 • Updated annotations highlight solo literature for each style period including insights on intermediate compositions from well known pedagogical composers.

 • Composer biographies provide meaningful background information including an updated listing for composers’ birth and death dates.

 • Introductory essays provide insightful information about each style period: Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary.

 • Advanced level recommendations in both the solo and ensemble sections show the true range of a composer’s piano writing.

 • Expanded annotations about ensemble music highlight compositions for one piano-four hands, one piano-six hands, two piano-four hands, and two piano-eight hands literature as well as the addition of multiple pianos and multiple players and digital piano ensemble teaching situations.
