    Hello,

    I was recently introduced to music by Nikolai Kapustin. However, the most of his pieces are rather hard - too hard for me to play, at the moment. Could you recommend me any pieces that are not that hard? I am already familiar with the Sonatina, op. 100 and I would like to know music on similar difficulty level.

    Best regards, Dr

    I have the same problem, most of Kapustin is out of reach for amateurs. The combination of virtuosity. motoric drive and jazzy rhythms is incredibly hard to acquire. Next to the Sonatina I can only thihk of some of the Jazz Preludes, one or two of the Preldues and Fugues, and some slow movements from Sonatas (No.6 in particular).
