Sonatinas, Book 1

Helen Marlais with Crystal Zimmerman


This book contains six sonatinas – some are well known, others are discovered gems, and two are by women composers. Every piece is in the original, complete form. Some titles/composers are: Little Sonata by Charles Wilton; Sonatina by Ferdinand Beyer; Blue Ridge Sonatina by Mary Leaf; and Sonatina: A Tale of Four Cats by Judith Strickland. This 32-page book includes thematics, discussion on sonatina form, listening activities, a dictionary, and notes about the pieces and composers-a great launch to this important musical form.
