Russian Gems

Detailed Description

Russian Gems (Seven Late Romantic and Early 20th Century Favorites). Edited by Nancy Arganbright and Dallas Weekley. For 1 piano, 4-hands. Intermediate. Collection. Published by Neil A. Kjos Music Company (KJ.WP608).

ISBN 849797616.

This beautiful volume is comprised of six works by great Russian composers. Arensky's "Cuckoo" is an excellent piece for contrast between staccato and legato playing. His "Fugue on a Russian Theme" is the perfect example to introduce the young pianist with fugal writing, incorporating subject, inversion, episode, stretto, and augmentation. Three exceptionally fine pieces by Gliere are skillfully crafted in the Romantic style. Rachmaninov's Russian Theme is written in the composer's richly pianistic style. (Intermediate/Late Intermediate).
