Spectrum 2 30 miniatures for solo piano by Thalia Myers

Spectrum 2 builds on the enormous success enjoyed by Spectrum, first published by ABRSM in 1996. This new volume presents 30 specially-commissioned miniatures for pianists, written by leading composers born or now based in Great Britain. Presenting a vibrant diversity of musical language and thought, Spectrum 2 reflects the breadth of current compositional trends and will serve as an invaluable introduction to contemporary music. Spectrum 2 contains pieces that are easier and shorter than those in the original Spectrum; they range in standard from Grade 1 to Grade 6 and are a concise and true representation of each composer's style. They are suitable for amateur and professional pianists of all ages.


WINNER of MUSIC PUBLISHER'S BEST NEW PRODUCT AWARD, MIA AWARDS 2000 * MIA Award * Spectrum 2 explores succinctly many pianistic and notational problems across the gamut of contemporary idioms, and will appeal to children and adults alike, as had been demonstrated internationally with the twenty pieces of the original. Teachers and their pupils will find both volumes and the CDs indispensable. * EPTA Piano Journal * The mixing of composers and idioms in one volume will be most marked and successful in the long-awaited easier Spectrum which, with its companion, will represent in a thorough-going, user-friendly and exciting way the state of play at the end of our century * Piano in Education * Excellent value for money, elegant and serious...The breadth and depth of contemporary thought is quite astonishing seen in this late '90s overview...late 20th-century thinking without tears, geared towards open young minds-this is truly a must-have! * The Piano *
