The primo parts of Godowsky's Miniatures, for use by early-grade students, are all in five-finger positions. A more advanced student or teacher may perform the more difficult secondo parts. The included CD has masterful complete recordings of the pieces, performed by famed pianists Joseph Banowetz and Alton Chung Ming Chan, plus an extra track with only the secondo part. A fascinating biography and notes on the pieces are also provided.

Joseph Banowetz graduated with a First Prize from the Vienna Akademie fur Musik und darstellende Kunst. Banowetz has been a piano recitalist and orchestral soloist on five continents. He was awarded the Liszt Medal by the Hungarian Liszt Society in recognition of his outstanding performances of Liszt and the Romantic literature.

    These duets challenge the student to maintain an ongoing pulse. The 5-finger position keeps the hand relaxed. Accompaniments are for advanced pianists.
