Alexander Tcherepnin's (1899-1977) Bagatelles are among his finest and most popular keyboard works. The 10 miniatures each span only two to four pages, yet are filled with a variety of mildly contemporary techniques. The more brilliant pieces help to develop a rapid finger technique, while the lyrical works are studies in the balance of melody and accompaniment figures. Lynn Freeman Olson's edition is carefully researched and includes helpful study notes. Included is an outstanding CD recording from the Naxos label.

    These pieces are some of my all time favorites. My mom would play many of them when I was younger. The CD recording by Julia is great and is priceless to have as an ear guide when learning these pieces. Beautiful!
