Easy Contemporary Pieces
Featuring works from 19 of the world's leading composers, Easy Contemporary Pieces reflects the tremendous variety of styles prevalent in contemporary music. These enjoyable pieces have been selected to be accessible to both the performer and the listener. The 29 contemporary works in this collection have been carefully selected for beginner and intermediate pianists. Many of the featured composers are known for their challenging works. However, the difficulty level of the pieces in this book has been carefully considered to provide the best playing experience for pianists at an intermediate level or under. Several of the works have been commissioned with this in mind, appearing here for the very first time in print. Easy Contemporary Pieces contains “Shard,” “Two Years” and “Tiger Moth” by Neil Cowley, “Familiar” by Nils Frahm, “Fragments” and “Brooklyn” by Hauschka, “Simone's Lullaby” by Terry Riley, “Chatterbox Waltz” and “The Exchange” by Michael Nyman, “Slumber Song” by Morton Gould, and more.
