An intermediate student will enjoy playing this entertaining, one-movement Sonatina by Georg Anton Benda (1722-1795), who was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia, to a famous musical family and worked in orchestras in the courts of Gotha and Prussia. Written in classical style, with broken chords and short sections of scale work, the Sonatina also has a variety of touches, phrasing and dynamic treatments, and a left-hand-over section that is a lot of fun to play.
