From Library Journal:

Gordon's long career in university-level keyboard instruction qualifies him to present this comprehensive text addressed to serious students of solo piano literature, most of them presumably performers who will keep the book as a source of ideas for repertoire and information for program notes. Whole chapters are devoted to brief biographies of and descriptions of individual pieces by the great European masters, with histories of forms (sonatas, character pieces, etc.) and styles presented as they evolved. Separate chapters collectively treat minor masters and certain geographic and style groupings (e.g., Russian, Spanish, "nontonal" composers). Well made and information packed, this title supplements F.E. Kirby's Music for Piano (LJ 11/15/95). For large music collections.?Bonnie Jo Dopp, Long Branch Community Lib., Silver Spring, Md.
