This album has been in existence for almost fifty years and is well known to many Australian teachers and students. The revised edition is clearly set out and printed on good quality paper. Sonatinas form a very important part in the development of young pianists. It is an introduction to the works of the Viennese Classical Period and the great sonatas of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. These sonatinas introduce many stylistic aspects including balancing a melody against an accompaniment, detailed dynamic changes, and a range of moods and basic musical forms in concise movements. Teachers will warmly welcome this revised edition.
