Animations. (27 Pieces for Solo Piano on the Lively Side). By Various. For Piano. BH Piano. 64 pages. Boosey & Hawkes #M060117657. Published by Boosey & Hawkes (HL.48019604).
A collection of pieces focusing on lively rhythms and sparkling, articulate music – not all of it at faster tempos. There are goblins and grasshoppers, gypsies and witches; Grieg and Goldschmidt co-exist with Horne and Hummel; there is entertaining and sometimes unfamiliar music by Scarlatti, Schumann and Chopin. There is ample dance music as well, including a waltz, mazurka, gigue and galop.
