Aaron Copland - Boosey & Hawkes
This late intermediate piece is great for recitals. It gives the student a chance to show off their expressive side, while giving them a good technical workout. Although it is slow and poetic, the syncopated rhythms and grace notes will give your students a challenge. It has typical Copland characteristics, 20th century harmonies mixed with rich chords and a beautiful melody. This short piece will surely become a favorite.
