Dmitri Shostakovich: 3 Fantastic Dances Op.5

Books | Piano

Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
These three piano miniatures composed in 1920 present an early Shostakovich and his interpretation of different traditional dance styles from a contemporary perspective. There is much of Shostakovich's familiar lively rhythms and unusual harmonies in these youthful pieces, as well as his fascination with folk forms and melodies which would characterise many of his later works.

        Lincoln GB Played piano for 70+
        Three charming quirky dances, written for piano by Shostakovich when he was a kid! I don't find them easy to play. They were part of the Associated Board's Grade 8 Syllabus in the '80s.
        The copy is good and easy to read. I haven't found any points.
