The 10 pieces in this book are arranged in approximate order of difficulty and include "Album Leaf," the easiest mazurkas, preludes and more. Each are in their original form and retain the sensitive, expressive character that earned Chopin the title "Poet of the Piano." Derived from "Chopin-an Introduction to His Piano Works," this edition is intended for students in the early grades. Willard Palmer has provided notes on ornamentation, pedaling and fingering.
This diverse collection contains dances (including the "Menuet in G"), the "Sonatina in G," and "Lustig, Traurig." Each piece is presented in its original form with Beethoven's markings clearly indicated. Three portraits of Beethoven are provided, and Dr. Palmer's background material describes staccato and legato markings in the composer's works. Designed for intermediate-level pianists, the volume is excellent preparation for the study of Beethoven's sonatinas, bagatelles and easier variation set.
Difficulty ranges from Early Intermediate to Intermediate.
