This wonderful anthology presents a fascinating survey of music by African composers, both those living in Africa and those now resident elsewhere in the world. The music, much of which is published here for the first time, includes a kaleidoscope of different styles, moods, genres, and colours. You will find works influenced by the blues, jazz, and ragtime and works built on exotic scales, African folk-tunes, and drumming rhythms. The volumes are graded, ranging from beginner (Vol. 1) to advanced (Vol. 5). They provide exciting material for pianists just beginning their studies and for those who are looking for new and exciting recital repertoire.
