* Also known as "Four Grandmother Songs" and "Old Granny Tales", this work was composed in New York in 1918 at the beginning of the composer's self-imposed exile from Russia after its Revolution. * These short pieces were immediately successful and were performed worldwide. * In the epigraph to this work Prokofiev wrote, "Some recollections had become half erased from her memory; others will never be erased." * Mr. Sauer once again, has produced a magnificent work for Euphonium & Piano. * This work with its great character is a joy to perform, about 8 - 9 minutes in length for moderately advanced performers. .
