Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Surveying nearly 700 books and videos (including some of his own materials in both formats) published since 1987, Hinson (piano, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary) has created a unique and valuable tool for teachers, students, performers, and library materials selectors interested in current developments in piano literature. Though some of the works described (with critical annotations) are widely available in libraries, many that probably should be are not. All titles included are currently in print; a handy list of sources will aid in acquiring some of the more obscure materials. Good indexes sort the materials by subject (lists of piano music, biographies, aesthetics, pedagogy, etc.). Recommended for most academic music collections.--James E. Ross, WLN, Seattle, WA
