Maurice Hinson

3rdPublisher: Indiana University PressFormat: Hardcover

Now updated and expanded, the “New Hinson” is more useful than ever, guiding pianists to piano solo literature, for themselves and for their students. Maurice Hinson still answers the perennial questions of performers and teachers: What is available? How difficult is it? What are its special musical features? How can I reach the publisher? In an alphabetical listing by composer name, Hinson describes selected solo piano compositions of nearly 2000 composers. He includes brief biographical sketches of the major composers and presents pertinent facts about many of the others that are relevant to the composers' pianistic and compositional approaches. For each entry he provides the publisher(s) of the piece, the number of pages, the performance time, a description of the style and any individual charactersitcs, and the level of difficulty. There are also insightful comparisons of the various editions and collections of the standard repertoire. Following the listings, one frequently finds bibliographic references to articles about a specific work. Indexes help the user locate women composers, Black composers, and composers from a number of specific countries and regions.For a quarter century, “the Hinson” has been indispensable for performers, teachers, and students. This extensively revised edition will be a trusted guide many years to come.
