  • 2016-07-05 18:02:32.0 Fantastic 20th Century study for advanced students

    I purchased this because I wanted to give an advanced student of mine (heading for a conservatory) a solid introduction to Prokofiev's style, and 20th century music in general, without getting bogged down by huge pieces or technical hurdles (he's inevitably drawn to hyper-virtuosic stuff). These pieces...

    are not really children's pieces. Perhaps a young student can play the notes, but musically, they demand every ounce of clarity and expression a pianist can muster. Awesome little set, versatile and varied, and small enough that an advanced student can learn the whole thing (great for a recital, too!). On a more mundane note, the score is clean and beautiful.

    bellussimo, come le invenzioni a tre voci ma piu contemporaneo e digieribile . obbligatorio . una gioia suonarlo, anche male

  • 2013-04-20 00:00:00.0 Very good edition for very nice pieces

    As stated in the title, this edition of "Music for children" by Prokofieff is very clear to read. The pieces are really enjoyable by children (and adults too). While I consider these pieces not suitable for absolute beginners, an early intermediate piano player could face them without struggle. And, of...

    course, a well trained pianist could appreciate and better render this beautiful music.

  • 2008-08-05 00:00:00.0 Miniature gems

    Most of Prokofieff's piano music is very challenging, but these pieces highlight his melodic/harmonic style without the pyrotechnics. They utilize the full keyboard and have some parts that sound harder than they are but overall should be well within the range of anybody that can play Schumann's...

    Kinderszenen (for which this would make a nice compliment).
