13 piano solos from 1932 to 1966 are represented in this collection and includes  biographical notes about the composer, editorial and performance notes about each piano composition, the scores and a recording by Jeanell Carrigan of all works in the hard copy.

Hesse’s compositional output almost completely consists of piano compositions which are mostly pedagogical works written for juveniles. Many of these were utilised by the AMEB and were almost all published.Original publishers included Augener, Allans, Leeds, Palings and Nicholson’s. Hesse being an experienced teacher knew which elements to exploit in her compositions to instruct students in the best technical methods.

More comprehensive biographical notes are within the volume which also includes a CD of all the works.
