Deborah,

Here's a correction for your list:

There are two books with similar names by different authors.

Lives of the Great Composers, The; Schonberg; (A general survey of the lives of many of the great composers)

Lives and Times of the Great Composers, The; Steen; (A survey of the lives of the great composers.)

A few additions:

Pianists Guide to Standard Teaching and Performance Literature, The; Magrath; (Review and levels for common elementary to early advanced piano literature. Does not cover the advanced pieces.)

A Practical Guide to Solo Piano Music; Barnard; (Lists, Lists, and more Liszts. This covers rough levels of advanced pieces.)

Guide to the Pianist's Repertoire; Hinson; (available online at http://www.iupress.indiana.edu/iol/ Review and levels for common piano pieces. This does cover advanced pieces.)

There are a lot more books available online at the www.iupress.indiana.edu/iol/ link. I'm not sure how many of them you would like to add.

Rich

May I suggest that you edit just your original post? That way the entire post isn't repeated with each addition.

I would add

Its a good suggestion but there is a time limit on edits. I can no longer open the last post. Also, by renewing the post, it appears on top of the forum page rather than slipping off into the land of old posts.

I should have added your suggestion previously. I loved that book.

I haven't seen these mentioned yet, but both are good reads:

Conversations with Arrau by Joseph Horowitz

Chopin: a New Biography by Adam Zamoyski

They are out of print but can be obtained used at Amazon.com for around $2. Your local public library might have them on the shelf as well.

Enjoy,
Jonathan

The thread is still live!

I've been able to find many out-of-print books through Amazon or in used bookstores. Sometimes the price is steep, but it usually is worth it.

Thanks, Jonathan.

OK Deborah, Confess. Have you developed a chronic case of PBAS? (Piano book acquisition syndrome, that is.) You know the only cure is to have a supportive member of Piano World come over and pack up all your piano books. (We'd be happy to take all your sheet music too, if that is also becoming a problem.)

Ha! I admit, I am a bibliophile married to a biblophile. At my house we joke that our books are like rabbits - they seem to reproduce overnight and we are always running out of bookshelf space. My husband once planned a romantic weekend in New York City. When we got there, he said he had made plans for us to visit some museums and other venues, (deadpan face with a twinkle in his eye)...or would I like to go to used bookstores?? I grinned and off we went. We returned to the hotel with arms loaded with books acting like little kids cooing over lost friends.


If you touch my music, you will have to die.

Deborah,

You might want to post a link to this thread in the Chopin subforum. I'm not seeing many books about Chopin in the above list. (or is it officially a Liszt?)

I assumed you meant the ABF topic "Just for those totally devoted to Chopin", so I posted there. Thanks for the idea.

In a few days, I'll see about adding the list to the Piano World FAQ section for posterity. Thanks to Deborah for a fantastic compilation!

Kreisler, that would be great! Members have contributed 106 book ideas. I'm sure there will be more coming too. I've got it saved on my computer as sortable Excel document. If you would prefer it in that form, let me know.

Thanks.

I was actually thinking about the Chopin subforum under the Composer's Lounge. I believe there is already another books thread in there.

I wasn't aware of this because it's a place I never visit. Perhaps you should be the one to post it since your "name" might be more recognizable?
