SKU: A0.844593

Composed by Charles Czerny. Arranged by Phil Beaman. Classical,Folk,Instructional. 3 pages. Phil Beaman #3928145. Published by Phil Beaman (A0.844593).

This fun piece is loosely based on a popular Russian folk polka. In 1853 Charles Czerny took this polka tune and created a piano etude as part of his set Amusement des Juenes Amateurs. I have taken some of his themes and adapted and arranged them for instrumental solo. I have assembled them into a Rondo form: Intro-A-B-A-C-A-D-A-Coda.  
It is an etude (study) to sharpen your playing of scales, arpeggios, melodic interval leaps, and various articulations. But it doesn't at all sound like an exercise because of the playful nature of the polka. This dramatic piece shows your technical accomplishments while delivering a crowd pleasing tune with great flourish.
I have marked it as Intermediate in difficulty as a general average. The notes and rhythms are Easy, the quick Tempo makes it Intermediate. The range is a half step beyond a full 2 octaves making it playable on the smaller 2 1/2 octave xylophone.
