Guide to the Pianist's Repertoire, Fourth Edition
Guide to the Pianist’s Repertoire continues to be the go-to source for piano performers, teachers, and students. Newly updated and expanded with more than 250 new composers, this incomparable resource expertly guides readers to solo piano literature and provides answers to common questions: What did a given composer write? What interesting work have I never heard of? How difficult is it? What are its special musical features? How can I reach the publisher?
New to the fourth edition are enhanced indexes identifying black composers, women composers, and compositions for piano with live or recorded electronics; a thorough listing of anthologies and collections organized by time period and nationality, now including collections from Africa and Slovakia; and expanded entries to account for new material, works, and resources that have become available since the third edition, including websites and electronic resources. The "newest Hinson" will be an indispensible guide for many years to come.

I can't judge the rest of the book, but any work of reference that lists my edition of Louis Couperin's préludes non mesurés under Armand-Louis Couperin, and refers to the lost "autography", needs to be flagged. How could Indiana University Press let that pass? If they really want to be up-to-date, they could mention my upcoming article in the Early Keyboard Journal where I show that most of them were actually written by Charles Couperin, Louis' brother. Armand-Louis is more than a century later.
