Description

This collection was inspired to meet the need for more preparatory literature for the intermediate-level pianist that explores the unique pianistic and musical challenges of the Impressionist style. Pianists who study this stunning collection of solo pieces will experience the layers of color, touch, and timing so necessary to a fine interpretation of this musical style. Beautifully written works with imaginative titles and rich texture and color, these pieces are a wonderful introduction into the half-tint world of Impressionist piano music. Musical directions are written in French throughout, as in the works of Debussy. A glossary of French musical terms is included in the book.

Rating Review
Customer Rating These enchanting and cleverly composed gems by Jennifer Linn are a sheer delight and an enticing introduction to impressionist music. The graceful arpeggiated patterns and atmospheric melodic lines lie easily under the hands of lower intermediate/intermediate pianists (grades 3-4). Perhaps the jewel of them all is Butterflies in the Sunlight, which conjures up the magic of the title with every sparkling phrase. My other favourites so far are ‘Hummingbird’, with it’s perpetual motion whirring backdrop, the poignant ‘Winter’s End’, and ‘Evening Tide’, with its sonorous use of space. The titles are in French, suggesting the impressionist style, and, as you can see, the covers are very inviting. I’m looking forward to exploring more repertoire from this gifted composer, who has also given us a set of very useful anthologies, Journey Through the Classics.
