A First Book of Stravinsky: for the Beginning Pianist
Beginners may be daunted by the prospect of playing the avant-garde works of Stravinsky, but this book is specially designed to make the Russian composer's music accessible. Focusing on melodies and style, these introductory arrangements feature manageable samples of the more abstract works in simplified keys. Suggested fingerings are also provided. Selections include highlights from The Rite of Spring, The Firebird, Les Noces, and Petrushka. To aid in practicing, MP3 downloads are included for each piece.
This book includes free downloadable MP3s of each piece.
