This work contains Suzanne Knosp's new music composed especially for ballet classes. It includes traditional dance forms such as waltz, mazurka, polonaise, polka, schottische, tango, tarantella, march, gallop (coda) and ragtime. Some selections have titles that indicate the character of music, such as "Adagio", "Lyrical Waltz", "Bright Waltz" or "A Sultry Tune". With two tables of contents, accompanists should find this book easy to use. The first lists the music by form; the second lists the barre and centre exercises described in the companion volumes I and III by Linda Crist, along with the appropriate music and number page. Offering a wide variety of music in both traditional and contemporary styles, composer Suzanne Knosp encourages pianists to use these selections in any musical setting. The first volume includes word descriptions of more than 80 barre combinations and more than 80 centre combinations, while volume III includes the labonotation of all the barre and centre work.
