Lynes: Four Sonatinas, Opus 39 by Lynes. Edited by Keith Snell. For piano. Neil A. Kjos Master Composer Library. Early Intermediate. Sheet music. Published by Neil A. Kjos Music Company (KJ.GP424).
Although, these sonatinas follow the Classical traditions, they are distinguished by being written during the height of the Romantic period by American composer Frank Lynes, 1858-1913. A refreshing alternative to the Clementi and Kuhlau sonatinas and an excellent introduction to sonatina playing for early intermediate and intermediate levels.
