    These are lyrical and moving sonatas that are accessible typically after some years of piano study. I genuinely enjoy playing through them. They have a lot to say, musically-speaking.

    I was pleased to be able to learn a whole sonata relatively quickly. The music is interesting and charming without any serious difficulty. Nice selection.

  • August 13, 2008 fun and delightful music

    These easier sonatas are pure fun to play for intermediate piano players who aren't quite ready for tackling harder sonatas. I've been playing piano for one year and find these sonatas interesting enough without being too difficult or too easy. They are great practice for trills and graduating...

    onto more complex fingering and rhythms in the future.
