Faber Music is delighted to publish The Faber Music Piano Anthology, a beautiful collection of core repertoire from the great composers, presented as a luxury hardback book. This stunning collection features high-quality premium paper, page finder ribbon and ‘The Concerto’ linocut cover image by Cyril Edward Power. 


Selected by pianist and teacher Melanie Spanswick, the anthology features 78 pieces in progressive order, with favourite classics such as Träumerei (Schumann), Une Larme (Mussorgsky), Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata and Gymnopédie No. 1 (Satie) alongside works from lesser-known composers such as Charles-Valentin Alkan, Martin Peerson, Alexander Ilyinsky, Déodat de Séverac and Samuil Maykapar.


Melanie Spanswick says, “I had a wonderful time selecting all the pieces for this beautifully presented volume from Faber Music’s extensive catalogue. My intention was to include a variety of well-known masterpieces peppered with a smattering of lesser known gems, introducing pianists to new repertoire alongside old favourites. From early Baroque through to the mid to late Twentieth century, there will hopefully be something for everyone to enjoy.
