Description: Album for the Young is collection of thirty-four short pieces ranging from early to late intermediate level organized in three books in order of difficulty. Book II is intermediate level difficulty.
Album for the Young includes a wide range of styles: from Renaissance to contemporary in the first two books, and Spanish and Latin American idioms in the third book. Fingering, pedaling articulation marks and other performance indications are provided for each piece. The writing is melodic and non-polyphonic making it more accessible to the early intermediate student.
"Here is real piano music imaginately written with clever and interesting rhythms and beautiful harmonic coloring. It is a joy to have all three volumes of these pieces. Young students to adults will enjoy these eminently pianistic and delightful works that display a wide variety of styles." Professor Maurice Hinson.
