CLT008 Album for the Young, Op. 39 - Tchaikovsky, P.I.

£14.49

(Six pieces from)
1. Morning Prayer
2. Polka
3. Mazurka
4. Waltz
5. The Sorcerer
6. Sweet Dreams

Six 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 a more descriptive piece, The Sorcerer. These short pieces are enjoyable to play and interesting to listen to; ideal for a concert programme or a clarinet choir reading session.
