Example text

Op. 11/2. (D-flat major, 3/4, andantino, 5 pp). A series of parallel sixths. Op. 11/6. (A major, 6/8, allegretto grazioso). Continually shifting arpeggios support a melody played in octaves. Trois morceaux, Op. 15. Late Intermediate to Early Advanced. Op. 15/1. Serenade. Level: Late Intermediate. (F major, in 4, andantino, 3 pp). Serene, symmetrical phrases arch over a gently strummed bass in this unhurried portrait of summer twilight in the north. Melodious trills and flourishes decorate the contrasting center section.

Graceful and playful, with the echoes of fìn-du-siècle Vienna, like a waltz from Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier. The work is firmly tonal, but there is a continual play of colors from non-functional sliding harmonies and added-note chords. Op. 148/3. Level: Late Intermediate. (G major, 2/4, allegro con delicatezza). A tentative, tip-toeing melody is played against staccato fourths and fifths in cakewalk rhythms, alternated between hands. Rapid changes of register make this work harder than it appears.

54/2. Level: Early Advanced. (D minor, cut time, vivace, 6 pp). A light and lively dance with octave passages, long trills, and some very rapid scales. Les Reves de Columbine Op. 65/1-5 ( Suite Française; Columbine’s Dreams). Level: LateIntermediate/Early-Advanced. La Fée de la Fontaine [The Fairy of the Fountain] Op. 65/1. Level: Late-Intermediate/Early-Advanced. (A major, 4/4, andante con calma, 4 pp). Shifting, murmuring harmonies support a static melody, interspersed with occasional glittering splashes of 32nd and 16th notes.
