Nicolai Podgornov's compositions for piano students, at all levels, inspire and stimulate with beautiful and enjoyable melodies. At the same time, however, quite specific pianistic skills are addressed. This new collection of pieces for grades 4 - 6 is the second in a three-volume series: EASY, INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED. The pieces are presented in order, the technical level gradually increasing throughout but never obscuring the pleasure of music making.
This piano resource comprises three volumes, set at roughly Grade 4-6 level, which form an anthology of pieces for students (and teachers) to enjoy playing. Regular MT reviewer Fiona Lau said: These three volumes could constitute your entire curriculum and nothing would be neglected.' Fiona called the books a collection of 'mini masterpieces' which 'follow in the tradition of Schumann, Burgmüller and Heller, teaching and inspiring the pianist through a range of styles and genres.'
