The pieces found in this anthology should be played "with flair!" Included are both familiar and less familiar pieces, all of which require a strong spirit and a decisive interpretation. They are pieces that should motivate and inspire the performer. Not all are fast pieces. Various compositional styles are represented. All works are original compositions presented in their original versions and are based on primary editions when possible. Editing has been kept to a minimum so that the essence of the composer's original text stands out. Most fingerings are editorial as are dynamic indications. All suggestions strive to steer the performer in the direction of the most authoritative and stylistically appropriate performance possible.
