This fifth volume in the Classical Piano Solos series features 19 original pieces from the masters, suitable for pianists at a Grade 5 standard.
This series was compiled to correlate loosely with the Modern Course method and can be used to supplement any teaching method or situation. This volume features a mix of well-known pieces such as Beethoven's “Moonlight” sonata (1st mvmt) and Rachmaninoff's famous C-sharp prelude, as well as lesser-known gems from Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (“They Will Not Lend Me a Child”), Anatoly Lyadov (“Prelude in B Minor”), and Rameau (“Les niais de Sologne”). All four main periods are represented.
Editor's note: The final section of the Rachmaninoff prelude is presented on one visually-accessible page; the Chopin waltz (Op. 69/1) is based on original autographs rather than the oft-performed Fontana edition.
