Berceuse for Janey. (Intermediate (Level 5) Showcase Solo). By Carol Klose. For Piano/Keyboard. Educational Piano Library. Hal Leonard Student Piano Library, Showcase Solos. Intermediate. Book only. 6 pages. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.296474).
Carol Klose has taken one of classical music's most familiar melodies and fashioned a masterpiece of her own, sure to be a recital favorite. Over a gently-rocking figure (quarter-note parallel-4ths) in the left hand, the right hand sings Brahms' Lullaby. As the piece progresses, inner-voice sixteenth notes in the right hand, colorful scale passages, and the rocking motif, now transformed into a tolling bell, are among the refined touches in this imaginative piece. Mary Cassatt's Mother and Her Child graces the front cover.
