The Pianist's Bookshelf, Second Edition
A Practical Guide to Books, Videos, and Other Resources
Published by: Indiana University Press
Originally published in 1997, The Pianist's Bookshelf, was, according to the Library Journal, "a unique and valuable tool." Now rewritten for a modern audience, this second edition expands into the 21st century.
A completely revised update, The Pianist's Bookshelf, Second Edition, comes to the rescue of pianists overwhelmed by the abundance of books, videos, and other works about the piano. In this clear, easy-to-use reference book, Maurice Hinson and Wesley Roberts survey hundreds of sources and provide concise, practical annotations for each item, thus saving the reader hours of precious research time. In addition to the main listings of entries, such as "Chamber Music" and "Piano Duet," the book has indexes of authors, composers, and performers.
A handy reference from the masters of piano bibliography, The Pianist's Bookshelf, Second Edition, will be an invaluable resource to students, teachers, and musicians.

"This is an absolutely splendid resource for every pianist. Its breadth is staggering, and it offers insightful comments on each entry. Belongs on everyone's bookshelf!"~Catherine Kautsky, author of Debussy's Paris: Piano Portraits of the Belle Époque
"Having been involved in all Maurice Hinson's publications from the 1980s and having the original Pianist's Bookshelf of 1998 in my library, I am delighted to welcome this latest publication which will, no doubt, have many interesting extra nuggets of information to even better educate music students and pianists."~Nadia Lasserson, Royal College of Music
