Keith Snell has selected thirteen gems by Gurlitt in this 24-page book for late elementary and early intermediate students. The lyrical melodies, descriptive titles, use of the pedal, and a wide range of character and mood provide delightful experiences in playing music of the Romantic period. This CD is performed by Diane Hidy and includes all of the pieces from the book. In addition, it contains the recordings from Twelve Easy and Melodious Studies (Streabbog) which will motivate your late elementary and early intermediate students with this sparkling collection of easier pieces from the Romantic period. Each piece is a short etude with a descriptive title designed to develop technical skills such as scales, broken and blocked chords, legato and staccato touches, pedaling, cross hand playing, and finger facility.
