The Five Fingers - Eight Easy Pieces for solo piano. Stravinsky completed the eight easy piano miniatures of Les Cing Doigts in 1921. The melody of each piece is based on a different five-note series, the five fingers of the right hand remain in nearly the same position throughout each piece. The left hand plays either a simple harmonic accompaniment or a similarly uncomplicated contrapuntal figure. These pieces contain echoes of form and mood from such earlier works as Pulcinella.
