    Pole addendum: Can pianolady convince Arensky to also complete Kabalevsky Op. 27? There are only 9 remaining in the set!

    But you guys already did all the cool ones, the ones that are left are HARD!!! :cry:

    Kabalevsky's Op.27 is one of the cornerstones of my teaching rep, so yes I'll complete it, if I can duplicate my favorites.

    I have another pedagogical set from my youth that I want to record also. But it's a secret! :wink:

    Can I email you a scan of my Op.27 for the site? It's out of print, Russian looking and really cool. 8)

    :lol: :lol: Ok - you can duplicate pieces, so go for it! (but if you do a much better job than me, then I'll have to re-do them all :( )

    I'd love to see it!

    I'm a bit confused here - you posted no.22 yesterday, and that was named 'Slow Waltz'. Now it's named 'Brief story'. What gives ?
    Please keep naming your files 'coleman' as that was what we did before Nathan arrived.
    As for ID3 tagging, I see that you have now used ID3 tags version 2.3, thanks ! I will yet have to sort out how to handle version 2.4 tags though, as they will probably occur more often.
    The tags do help, but are not quite according to the standard. I really need to set down the guidelines for that in a posting.

    My brains!!! :D

    Slow Waltz' exact number is omitted in my compilation book, so I counted down a complete list at sheetmusicplus.com. and miscounted, Slow Waltz is no.23, "Brief Story" (or "Short Story" if you prefer) is no.22. Hey, it's my eyes that are giving out, not my brains... :?

    Okay!

    Prokofiev Musiques d'Enfants Op.65? It'd be great if you did. Well, it'd be great whatever the pedagogical set was. :D

    All are up the site, Chase. Please double-check. If you can find/write some blurb on them that would be nice. The picture is not so hot, I could only find a small one and had to blow it up.

    I really wish composers wouldn't always assume beginners are CHILDREN by naming their
    compositions/collections in this manner.

    I wasn't thinking of Mikrokosmos, but I do use them in my teaching, IF the pupil is willing. Bartok is not everyone's cup of tea and I don't make students play music they don't like, unless it's Bach. He is required.

    I might record one or two of the later books of Mikrokosmos, but not all six. Prokofiev's Op.65 has never appealed to my students young or old and they are quite difficult for young people imo. I like to play "The Moon Strolls in the Meadows" for my own enjoyment now and then, but that wasn't it either. Y'all shall see, if I get around to it. Hint, it would be a new composer for the site. :wink:

    Bclever, that must be frustrating, but remember that it's never too late to enjoy children's things, including their piano pieces! :D Just leave the "children" part out of the title!

    BLURB


    Composed in 1944, this collection along with the Thirty Children's Pieces Op.27 contains some of Kabalevsky's best known teaching pieces.



    Don't know much else, I'm afraid...

    you mean op. 39 and it's called 24 Pieces for Children or 24 Easy Pieces. My book calls them 24 Easy Pieces.

    Brian - I think that it is not always the composers who name them 'children' but the publishers who do it.
