English | 2017 | ISBN: 3795745640 | 140 pages | PDF | 3 MB
This book Modern Piano contains 90 easy original pieces from the 20th and 21st centuries. The pieces selected display a great variety of styles including New Music, neoclassicism, modern dances, jazz, blues, pop, rock, musical studies, meditative music, New Age music and more besides: a colourful range of different styles, sometimes blurring the distinction between classical and popular music in ‘crossover’ pieces that bridge the gap between different musical worlds.
The little pieces selected invite us to go on a musical journey of discovery, introducing new experiences using modern sounds and rhythms. All these pieces are suitable for tuition purposes, auditions, examinations and school music competitions – or just as stimulating repertoire for pianists interested in music.
