175 Exertudes, Book 1: Early Intermediate

By Donald Waxman

Detailed Description

Piano - SMP Level 2 (Late Elementary)
Short Pieces for Technical Development and the Exploration of Contemporary Musical Language. Composed by Donald Waxman. Etudes. Collection. 25 pages. Published by E.C. Schirmer Publishing (EC.1.3352).

Item Number: EC.1.3352


These pieces represent a new form developed by Donald Waxman that lies midway between an exercise and a short etude and written in the accessible contemporary language that has distinguished the pedagogical compositions of the composer. Graded in five books from early intermediate to advanced, these "exertudes," many of them only two or three lines long, exploit every aspect of finger, wrist and arm techniques and exemplify the many facets of contemporary musical language such as chromaticism, pandiatonicism, quartal harmonies, interval writing, whole tone and pentatonic modes, etc.
