Beginning pianists and their teachers will love this compilation of immortal music by Frédéric Chopin. Fun-to-play, pedagogically sound arrangements include the theme from the "Raindrop" Prelude, "Minute" Waltz, the charming Lullaby, and melodic highlights from the most familiar preludes, mazurkas, waltzes, impromptus, and etudes.
Each piece is accompanied by informal notes that share insights into Chopin's life and the unique features of his music. From the lyrical Fantaisie-impromptu and "Butterfly" Etude to the brilliant strains of the "Military" Polonaise and "Heroic" Polonaise, these arrangements of 23 of the composer's best-loved pieces will prove welcome additions to any beginning pianist's repertoire. Plus, bonus MP3 downloads are included for each song to make practicing even easier!
