Description

The contemporary equivalent of the Beethoven bagatelle is in short supply. Large-scale, challenging works continue to flow unabated into the solo piano repertoire, as do volumes of excellent educational music. Short pieces, however, that are uncomprimising in substance and style without making virtuoso demands on the player have become increasingly scarce.
