This diverse collection contains dances (including the "Menuet in G"), the "Sonatina in G," and "Lustig, Traurig." Each piece is presented in its original form with Beethoven's markings clearly indicated. Three portraits of Beethoven are provided, and Dr. Palmer's background material describes staccato and legato markings in the composer's works. Designed for intermediate-level pianists, the volume is excellent preparation for the study of Beethoven's sonatinas, bagatelles and easier variation set.

    This series of books with CD is a wonderful addition for teachers to have in their studio library! Most are rated for intermediate students, but with the CD even students in the beginning stages of piano can start to learn some of the easier pieces. I have a 9 year...

    old boy student who is fascinated by Beethoven. I had several of these books but not the Beethoven. I recently bought it and my student is now happily working on a piece by his favorite composer! Will he play it with all the proper technique and nuance? Probably not…but will he learn a lot of new things while playing something he really wants to play? Sure! Who says you can’t play it unless it’s perfect? If we insisted on perfection, our students wouldn’t pass the first song in the Preparatory books of their methods. Let them have a go. You’ll be amazed how quickly they’ll pick up techniques. Especially with the CD to imitate. I’ve put this as a beginning level, because there’s no reason it can’t be!
