Book 1

The Novellas are composed in a variety of contemporary styles, offering unique technical challenges for study while providing musically satisfying and appealing performance pieces. The compositions are carefully created to challenge the pianist with the most well-crafted pieces possible. Reminiscent of 19th-century character pieces, they provide interesting musical development and complexity while remaining short (similar to treatment of musical ideas in a sonatina). Some pieces have descriptive titles, others are open to interpretation, but each conveys some form of musical narrative that is both satisfying and rewarding.
