The New International Edition of Suzuki Piano School, Volume 3 includes French, German and Spanish translations, new Romantic and 20th-century pieces, as well as a newly recorded CD performed by internationally renowned recording artist Seizo Azuma. Now the book and CD can be purchased together or separately.
The contents have changed slightly to include a new Romantic piece by Gurlitt and a 20th-century piece by Bartók as well as the Bach "Minuet in G Minor" (from Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach), formerly in Volume 2. Other improvements include a cleaner appearance with less editing and spacious new engravings, as well as more detailed titles that include the keys, sources, composer dates, and catalog numbers.
