27 Pieces for Solo Piano on the Quiet Side

27 Pieces for Solo Piano on the Quiet Side. BH Piano. Collection, Classical. 56 pages. Boosey & Hawkes #M060118852. Published by Boosey & Hawkes (HL.48019601).

Item Number: HL.48019601

9x12 inches. Piano Moods Series.

Pieces drawn from a wide range of periods and styles, creating intriguing juxtapositions of pieces by well-known and lesser-known composers. Bernstein's tribute to Sondheim rubs shoulders with Erik Satie; Mozart and Tchaikovsky are represented alongside their contemporaries Kozeluh and Cui.

“The publisher Boosey & Hawkes has created a most attractive lay-out for these 95 solo piano pieces, most of which are at the intermediate level...I thoroughly enjoyed the contrasting styles in each volume. All periods from the 16th-century to modern are present. The volumes include some familiar works, such as Franck's 'Doll's Complaint', but a clear majority of the pieces are new and at times refreshing.”--American Music Teacher

    Difficulty Level:
  • April 27, 2018 Excellent collection, very well laid out

    A nice balance of contemporary, romantic and early classical pieces. Many of the pieces are two pages long, and the few that are three pages are balanced with single-page works, so the mid-piece page turning is kept to a minimum. This makes the volume very easy to read...

    and play.
