David Burge offers a personal and inviting overview of the often challenging music written for solo piano during this century, an artistic response by a pianist and educator widely acclaimed for introducing much of this literature to the repertoire. Divided into four sections, each covering a key historical period, Twentieth-Century Piano Music examines the development of different styles and compositional techniques, and integrates historical and artistic details with a sophisticated and accessible approach to the music. Burge offers cogent performance suggestions for selected works of Aaron Copland, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Pierre Boulez, Luciano Berio, John Cage, George Crumb, and others. - Jacket flap.
