Vol. 18 Contrasts



The hypnotic Little prelude in C minor (J S Bach) is tackled at this level with two upbeat jazzy pieces (Maybe, maybe not and Mood swing) to provide light relief. Benda’s Sonatina in A minor offers the chance for some nimble finger work and Fading Photos gives the maturing young pianist an opportunity to develop expressive playing. There is a duet with rhythmic challenges for all and a characterful arrangement of Scots wha hae
