Lyric Preludes in Romantic Style

24 Short Piano Pieces in All Keys

By Perf. by Henry Doskey

Customer Rating:   4 Reviews Write a Review


Lyric Preludes in Romantic Style (24 Short Piano Pieces in All Keys). By Perf. by Henry Doskey. By William L. Gillock. For Piano. Piano Collection; Piano Supplemental. Form: Prelude. Romantic. Intermediate; Late Intermediate. Book & CD. 36 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.0649CD).

ISBN 0739050664. Romantic.

Like Chopin, Gillock wrote 24 preludes featuring all major and minor keys. The newly engraved 50th anniversary edition contains the composer’s original notes, as well as a CD recording performed by Henry Doskey, who studied piano with Gillock while the Lyric Preludes were being written in the late 1950s. Friends for more than 35 years, Gillock designated Doskey as the "authoritative interpreter, and judge of authenticity of stylistic treatment" of his music. 36 pages.

  • May 05, 2012 "Lovely Preludes"

    These are beautiful pieces and not very difficult for an adult who has been playing for over two years. Each is unique and has suggestions on interpretation. Also, the notation is easy to read. These Preludes do not sound like standard pedagogic pieces but are unique and melodic.

  • January 29, 2012 Great Pieces

    A lovely new edition of these wonderful pieces that students just love! An essential for the advanceing student. Nicer format than the old, small-size volume, and the background information is helpful also. Very fine performances on the CD. Bravo!

  • October 27, 2008 Beautiful music by a gifted composer!

    The Gillock Lyric Preludes are lovely pieces that will bring pleasure to students and teachers alike. I initially studied the preludes to prepare for teaching them to my students. I still play them simply for the sheer pleasure of experiencing this beautiful music. I like the order in which the...

    pieces are presented, (a major key followed by its parallel minor.) The Performance Notes by William L. Gillock are extremely helpful. The pieces are short, rarely over a page long, and are excellent additions to a student’s repertoire. To use a food analogy, scales might be likened to the vegetables in a meal; the Lyric Preludes are definitely the delicious dessert! The Anniversary edition of the book/CD combination is very reasonably priced, and Henry Doskey’s recordings of Gillock’s Lyric Preludes are excellent. I highly recommend it.
