Classical Piano Solos – Fifth Grade John Thompson's Modern Course
Compiled and edited by Philip Low, Sonya Schumann & Charmaine SiagianWillis Softcover
19 fantastic selections from the piano literature canon! Grade 5 of the Classical Piano Solos series features beloved pieces such as Beethoven's “Moonlight” sonata (1st mvmt) and Rachmaninoff's 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.
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.
