Some to listen, Some to play: Album for the Young

14043439This collection of sheet music for piano solo includes sixty-six classics written by the masters for piano solo.  Some are easy enough for children to play: “Les Cinq Doigts #1” by Igor Stravinsky, “Melody” and “Soldier’s March” from Schumann’s collection, “Album for the Young” are among these.  The rest are to play for children.  There is a transcription of “The Elephant” from Saint-Saens’ “Carnival of the Animals.”

Francis Poulenc wrote about Babar, the little elephant.  “The Tea Shop” is a musical representation of Babar taking some friends to a tea shop, where they have some delicious cakes.  Two of J. S. Bach’s two-part inventions are included.  The most recent piece was written by George Fenton.  It’s called “At the Beach”.  This music can appeal to any age player,  or to play for any age child or young person.  The music spans several styles of composition.  It’s a perfect collection for exploring the classics from Bach to the 21st  century.  For more information about this collection or others like it, contact us at 1-800-42-MUSIC, email us at, or visit our website.
