This edition provides a valuable resource of accessible masterworks for busy pianists. It contains 40 piano pieces in their original form appropriate for weddings, funerals, receptions, and other events. To make the selections useful as background music, only short pieces have been included and flashy, concert-like pieces have been avoided.
