During this period, it featured a series of Master-Lessons by noted piano virtuosi. Originally intended to provide world-class teaching to a public that otherwise could not afford such lessons, the series became a valuable record of professional performance practice, offering a rare and unique glimpse of piano teaching in the first decades of the century. Among the chapters in this collection are master-lessons on Paderewskis Minuet in G, Chopins Military Polonaise, Griegs Norwegian Bridal Procession, Mendelssohns Scherzo, and Beethovens Pathétique Sonata. Authors include such piano masters as Wilhelm Bachaus, Percy Grainger, Edwin Hughes, and Mark Hambourg. Compiled in a format that preserves its original layout and style, this collection is indispensable to piano teachers and students and of the greatest interest to the growing number of piano literature and performance practice classes taught at the university level.
