This wonderful anthology presents a fascinating survey of music by African composers, both those living in Africa and those now resident elsewhere in the world. The music, much of which is published here for the first time, includes a kaleidoscope of different styles, moods, genres, and colours. You will find works influenced by the blues, jazz, and ragtime and works built on exotic scales, African folk-tunes, and drumming rhythms. The volumes are graded, ranging from beginner (Vol. 1) to advanced (Vol. 5). They provide exciting material for pianists just beginning their studies and for those who are looking for new and exciting recital repertoire.

Review quote

Technically accomplished pianists seeking to develop their hands, ears, and imagination in new ways, and to take their audiences on voyages of discovery, are recommended to obtain these volumes at the earliest opportunity. * Musical Opinion * There are performance notes for all pieces (as with Volume 1) and here, too, you're bound to find something that catches you ear. A most welcome addition to the catalogue, especially for pedagogues, and what's more, each volume will cost you no more than GBP10 ($20). * Pianist, October 07 * A new supply of richly varied repertoire * John York, Piano 2007 *
