Customer Rating:   9 Reviews Write a Review


Lyric Preludes In Romantic Style (24 Short Piano Pieces in All Keys). Composed by William L. Gillock. For solo piano. Piano Collection; Piano Supplemental. Form: Prelude. Classical Period and 20th Century. SMP Level 5 (Intermediate). Collection. Standard notation, fingerings and introductory text (does not include words to the songs). 36 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.0649).

ISBN 0874876494. With standard notation, fingerings and introductory text (does not include words to the songs). Classical Period and 20th Century. 9x12 inches.

Lyric Preludes is an introduction to the whole Romantic period -- from Chopin and Schumann to Brahms and Debussy. Like Chopin, Gillock has written 24 preludes featuring all major and minor keys. But his preludes aren't just imitations of other composer's styles, they are valid, original works. An essential book for all pianists.

This title has selections that range in difficulty from SMP Level 4-5.

    THese are beautifully written, short pieces in all 24 MAJOR/minor KEYS. Very creative writing, easy for students of modest ability to master in a reasonably short time. All different ,moods and tempos, from slow/tranquil to fast/tempetuos. My students love them; and, they are also useful to, say...

    , church organists for organ or piano interludes. great stuff!!!

    William Gillock was a personal friend. His romantic composing in easier pieces is so refreshing. He is surely missed.

    Gillocks 'fountain of diana' is nothing less than beatiful.If properly played with the soul the reward is a feeling of something only the heart can touch.I strongly recomend this gorgous piece to those who love to feel music, not just play it.Beautifully done.

    Gillock offers rich music accessible every day musicians. As an adult learner with children and a full time job, I do not have time to develop into an "interpreter of the classics." This collection of lyric preludes is perfect for me. The compositions sound rich and impress the audiences. It...

    is perfect for intermediate-level musicians who want to share beautiful music.

    This collection of pieces by Gillock is a treasure. I have never seen a group of pieces organized this way; Major scale followed by one in the corresponding minor. He shows great versatility and creativity. I highly recommend it.
