Format: Paperback
Hundreds of composers and what seems to be over a thousand works, most of them obscure. It is a wonderful little handbook which, whenever possible, states also the duration of pieces, publisher, style, difficulty, and any other information you may need to locate the score. There are some major works missing from it, for example George Crumb's Celestial Mechanics, Yvar Mikhashof's arrangement of Conlon Nancarrow's Sonatina, Ravel's Rhapsodie Espagnole or Lucien Garban's arrangement of his La Valse, Stravinsky's Petroushka or The Rite of Spring (both composed first for this medium and later orchestrated by the composer), John Corigliano's Gazebo Dances. And these are the ones I am aware of, who knows how many others have been overlooked. Nevertheless you have 312 solid pages of works for one piano four hands (not two pianos!) from A-Z. A must for any duo pianist out there.

If you are looking for quatre mains repertoire, this is the book to buy. Ordered by composer it gives short but the right information.
