Childish Nonsense forgrown-up pianists. An unusual and deliciously frivolous compilation of elevensilly piano pieces for occasions that seem to warrant that kind of thing,composed by composers who were alive at the time.  This book of gently humorous performancepieces was born from a desire to play more droll and mirthful music.  It is aimed at half-decent pianists, or really good ones, withdifficulty levels that range from intermediate to quite tricky, and it contains musicthat is intended to lighten the mood in otherwise dreary recitals. If you find Haydn’s Joke Quartet laugh-out-loud funny, wellgood luck to you – you’ll probably enjoy something in here too.
