Like the two-part inventions, Bach's three-part inventions (also known as Sinfonias) were composed as instructional material for his son, Wilhelm Friedemann. In researching the sinfonias, Willard A. Palmer discovered that previous editors had misinterpreted an important note in Sinfonia No. 11. Such careful research is a hallmark of Palmer's Bach editions.

The third concert etude in D-flat major from Liszt's Trois etudes de concert will challenge advanced pianists with its constant hand-crossings and varying number of cascading notes per measure in the accompaniment. A lovely pentatonic melody is embedded in the rolling arpeggio-like patterns, frequently played by alternating hands throughout the piece. Keeping this cantando melodic line distinct and phrased while transparently maintaining the flowing accompaniment is the primary challenge of this masterwork. This edition is based on Musikalische Werke herausgegeben von der Franz Liszt-Stifung, Series II, edited by Ferruccio Busoni.

Polish composer Moritz Moszkowski (1854-1925) wrote brilliant piano music similar to the early-Romantic style of Chopin, Mendelssohn and Schumann. Written for advancing pianists, each etude is a study in drama, mood and expression as well as finger technique. Hinson's edition contains a biographical sketch of the composer, a discussion of his style, and a helpful performance analysis of each etude.

In 1845, Robert Schumann embarked on an intense course of contrapuntal studies. This led him to rent a pedalboard attachment for his piano, inspiring him to write pieces specifically for pedal piano, including these etudes. The great French composer Georges Bizet arranged the Six Etudes in Canon Form, Op.56 for one piano, four hands. These etudes are not simply technical finger exercises like Hanon or Czerny, but true works of art like the Chopin etudes. They make wonderful music while working the muscles of the hands and fingers.

Vorschule Im Klavierspiel, Op. 101, by Ferdinand Beyer (1803--1863) was first published in 1860. Since that time, it has been used by piano students throughout the world, especially in Asian countries. When compared with piano methods written in the 20th and 21st centuries, it appears more like a technique book than a piano method. This edition has been edited to be useful for today's piano students, either as a method (with teacher guidance) or as a supplementary book.
