This three-volume series of piano music by women composers is a progressive compendium of educational literature with a broad repertoire from the 17th century to the present day. For each piece, the editor has written short instructions with rehearsal tips as well as biographical notes on the women composers. The collection covers all levels of difficulty from easy (volume 1) to medium (volume 2) to difficult (volume 3) and is an indispensable addition to lessons and concerts. WOMEN COMPOSERS: A GRADED ANTHOLOGY FOR PIANO - Press Reviews “…Melanie Spanswick must be congratulated on her extensive research in uncovering exiting music to enthral pianists and teachers.” Piano Professional “An extremely useful and stimulating collection.” International Piano “…these are well-presented books that succeed in offering some belated recognition to neglected composers and their music.” Pianist Magazine “Spanswick has done us all an immense favour by researching, compiling and presenting these fabulous collections, which unquestionable represent a milestone in music publishing." “Melanie Spanswick's anthology is not only representative, but also inspiring.” Piano Bulletin "This series is an incredible and much-needed collection of over fifty works by over fifty female composers. ...Melanie Spanswick has done an exceptional job of collating these works into graded anthologies."
