Spectrum 3 is the latest addition to the enormously successful Spectrum series, established by ABRSM with Thalia Myers in 1996. the aim of the series remains constant: to commission some of the finest composers to write pieces of modest length and difficulty, whilst preserving the essential characteristics of their compositional style. This international volume contains twenty-five pieces written at the turn of the millennium by composers from twenty-five different countries. It demonstrates how the language and tradition of Western classical music have been absorbed and adopted by composers all round the world, and how that language has been enriched and enhanced by each composer's unique background, experience and musical personality. The pieces in Spectrum 3 range in standard from Grade 3 to Grade 7 and are suitable for student, amateur and professional pianists of all ages.show more

Spectrum 3, almost uniquely, combines approachability with intellectual stimulation. * www.musicteachers.co.uk * There is something here for all in this well varied, beautiful, really 'new' collection, as good a snapshot of the contemporary international musical scene at the start of the millennium as it is possible to conceive. ... there is no equal on the music shop shelves to this third Spectrum and the entire series will surely go on and on, a brilliant original idea reaching new heights of excellence with each release. * The Piano *show more
