Kabalevsky often quoted Russian writer Maxim Gorky that books for children should be “the same as for adults, only better.” In one volume the miniature masterpieces that Kabalevsky composed for piano students have been grouped by level of difficulty, drawn from various sets. The composer believed that “no piece of music, however short and modest, should pass by a child without touching his mind and heart.”
