New to the fourth edition are enhanced indexes identifying black composers, women composers, and compositions for piano with live or recorded electronics; a thorough listing of anthologies and collections organized by time period and nationality, now including collections from Africa and Slovakia; and expanded entries to account for new material, works, and resources that have become available since the third edition, including websites and electronic resources. The "newest Hinson" will be an indispensible guide for many years to come.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"After perusing this comprehensive book, pianists will have a new list of music to learn!" —American Music Teacher

"[T]his volume, as its predecessors, is excellent for piano teachers planning recitals." —American Reference Books Annual

"Highly recommended." —Choice

Nelita True

"The release of any book by Maurice Hinson (this time with co-author Wesley Roberts) is a major event, especially in the piano world. This Fourth Edition of Guide to the Pianist's Repertoire represents an accomplishment of staggering proportion, with over 1200 pages, more than 300 pages longer than the Third Edition. Dr. Hinson describes it as an updated ‘practical listing of the important piano literature,’ but it offers significantly more than that. In addition to the inestimable value of finding little known works, the reader also benefits from the lucid descriptions and practical information about piano music from 1700 to the present. This ‘Guide’ is an extraordinary resource for anyone devoted to the rich repertoire for the piano." —Nelita True, Eastman School of Music
