I looked for the entry for Leo Ornstein as an example, and indeed his date of death was not included. He was born, probably, in 1892).

I looked for the entry for Leo Ornstein as an example, and indeed his date of death was not included. I assume that, similarly, there was little revision done on previous entries. Hinson's opinions are usually authoritative, if occasionally annoying. For pianists interested in expanding their repertory, this is an essential resource.

Page iii MAURICE HINSON GUIDE TO THE PIANIST’S REPERTOIRE . It is impossible to include everything written for the piano, so the book inevitably takes on a certain amount of subjectivity.

Our beloved instrument is still ‘‘front and center as we near the second millennium. Some avant-garde experimentation continues, but the big pendulum swing is toward tonality or, more precisely, freely tonal writing.

Era
The Third Edition of "Hinson" (Guide to the Pianist's Repertoire) has perhaps 120 new entries, but is otherwise unchanged. I looked for the entry for Leo Ornstein as an example, and indeed his date of death was not included. (He was born, probably, in 1892). I assume that, similarly, there was little revision done on previous entries.

Hinson's opinions are usually authoritative, if occasionally annoying. For pianists interested in expanding their repertory, this is an essential resource. One problem is that the coverage is focussed on available published editions. Today a huge range of formerly out-of-print piano music is available for free download from [...] This site did not exist when previous editions came out. Publishers, and Amazon, may not approve, but a guide intended to be comprehensive should cover this resource.

I had ordered the 3rd edition of this (and there's a 4th), but it never showed up. So I got what I could for the money, which is the 2nd edition. For my purposes as a private teacher it more than meets my needs and is very comprehensive as a guide to piano repertoire from not just the standard repertoire that we all know, but also the repertoire from composers of many countries. I found it very interesting to be introduced to this music of which we rarely hear. Good value for the money.

A classic among pianists.

In terms of standard 17th thru 19th century repertoire, this is a comprehensive repertoire listing, which is particularly useful for teachers of advanced piano students to help choose pieces for students. A "difficulty" rating is assigned to every piece of piano music, which I would take with a grain of salt - this is certainly subjective. There are lots of nice unexpected surprises listed - works that I didn't know existed, and information on their publishers. In terms of modern repertoire, there are some helpful suggestions, but I think that the field is simply too big (as well as constantly changing as new composers come along), so pianists should investigate their contemporary music choices through other channels.

It is a expensive book which is worth to pay for it. Very quality u can trust on this seller.

I have purchased each edition of the "Guide to Pianist's Repertoire" during my career as a piano instructor. This edition provides more up-to-date information on Contemporary music. Quite a bit larger tome, but essential for every pianist!

Product was in near new condition except for cover jacket, which had tears and sun damage. The book itself was in great shape. I am impressed with the quality.
As a pianist, teacher, adjudicator and examiner I ocassionally find myself frustrated by the fact that I can't remember off hand the name, key, opus number or a particular fact about a work when I absolutely need too!
Maurice Hinson once again comes to the rescue for people like myself and others! The Guide is wonderfully laid out and provides pertinent facts about nearly 2,000 solo piano compositions by well known and the lesser-known composers. The information is specific and to the point, without all the non-essential material which is exactly what I need when grasping for information in the middle of a competition or when asked a question in a workshop about an obscure work or composer!
All bases are covered in this edition. For students, new, and even seasoned teachers, Hinson provides precise, formidable insight on a composer's complete compositions, as well as pianistic, interpretative, stylistic and characteristic approaches.
Overall, "The Guide to the Pianist's Repertoire", is virtually a "Pianist's Bible."
