He is best known for his massive Passacaglia on DSCH - at 80 minutes long, the biggest single-movement work in the piano literature. But he has an enormous number of other fine works to his credit: a vast corpus of original and exciting works for the piano, the instrument of which he is an acknowledged master, a number of innovative and impressive scores for orchestra (including four concertos), many attractive pieces of chamber music, and over two hundred songs.

Indeed, the sheer size of Stevensons output is staggering: the worklist in this book fills some 75 pages - a body of music which both testifies to Stevensons enduring belief in the value of melody and show him to be alert to the more important developments of the twentieth century. This collection of essays covers virtually all of Stevensons enormous output.It features contributions from a number of leading authorities: Malcolm MacDonald on the orchestral music, Ates Orga on the piano works, Alistair Chisholm on the chamber music, Derek Watson on the songs, Harold Taylor on Stevensons pianism, James Reid Baxter on Stevensons position in Scottish culture.

It also reproduces a selection of Stevensons exquisite piano miniatures, in facsimiles of the composers calligraphic script.
