Written for the most basic of organ resources, this swift and playful piece is subtitled Toccatina for Flute. The entire piece is played on a single manual with a single 8-foot flute stop, and is pedaled with a 16-foot stop and the coupled manual flute. While fairly demanding for the hands, with a constant sixteenth note broken chord pattern in both hands, the pedal notes are fairly simple, and intermittent. The constant dynamic is very soft, and a steady tempo is indicated throughout, right up to the end. Pietro Alessandro Yon, (1886--1943) was an Italian-born organist who made his career in the United States. He served for a time as an organist at the Vatican and at the Royal Church in Rome before coming to the United States in 1907, and he is most famous for this Humoresque, and for his Christmas piece, Gesu bambino.

    I agree with the previous reviewer that this is straightforward and is a gem but I would say that it is challenging (currently in the Trinity grade 6 syllabus). Definitely worth learning though and a good price here.

  • October 02, 2007 Delightful encore material

    This piece, technically, is not too demanding - maybe early intermediate - but as a filler or an encore it is an absolute gem; bright and tuneful, with a delightfully throw-away ending.
