The Sonatinas are very often neglected by many piano teachers. They are demanding for students from grade 4 upwards. The help to develop students ability to convey a melodic line, as well as expression and rubato. They are also demanding technically, and individual finger exercises can be developed from the various quaver and semiquaver passages. The use of ornamentation is also demanding for students who wish to progress to a higher level of music making, and instill the rules of ornamention into the students technique and knowledge.

A good set, well presented. I enjoy Beethoven in these miniature pieces.
