Many composers have enjoyed using music to portray animals and their appearance, movements and sounds. In some of these pieces, you might even guess which animal is being portrayed, even if you don't know the title. This book, with its 30 compositions, gathers a large variety: tiny ones like the fly and the grasshopper, huge ones like the bear and the elephant, dangerous ones like the panther and the shark, tame ones like the kitten or the dog, animals living underground like the mole, on trees like the monkey, or in the air like the birds, the wasp or the butterfly. Includes works by Couperin, Schumann, Burgmüller, Prokofiev, Kabalevsky, Mancini, Bartók, and more.

  • September 09, 2012 Animals: Thirty Easy Pieces For Children

    Beautifully illustrated, with a wide variety of interesing pieces. Difficulty level varies considerably, but the pieces are very original, and would be a good choice to play to a group of children and have them guess which animal is being portrayed!
