Novello's Pianoforte Albums

typical title page



This British series of piano works started in the 1850s. It was fairly short compared with choral series such as Novello's Octavo Editions. In addition, the composers were more cosmopolitan than those of Novello's choral publications. Each album contained many short works; for example the Cui selection (no.15) contained 31 items running to over 140 pages.
