7. Sweet Dreams

Seven pieces from Tchaikovsky's Opus 39 for piano. Although the original collection is "for the Young" these are charming miniatures which make satisfying and enjoyable pieces for a fairly advanced ensemble. There is plenty of contrast here; the two slow outer movements book-end three lively dances, Mazurka, Polka and Waltz (which maybe give an early hint of the ballet music to follow),  and two more descriptive pieces, Lark Song and The Sorcerer. These short pieces are enjoyable to play and interesting to listen to; ideal for a concert programme or a flute reading session.
