The FJH Pianist's Curriculum

Portraits for Piano

Arthur Frackenpohl

Sure to be a modern classic, this book is a witty and accessible collection for the adventurous student. Excellent survey in miniature of 20th century styles: various modes and scales, intervals (seconds large and small, thirds and fourths), various meters, crossovers and chromatic contrary motion. Pieces are 1-2 pages. Some of the titles are: Aeolian Air with Canon; Birthday Tango; Five Octave Cluster Fun; Flat Two, Flat Six; Crow-Mat-Tick; Pentatonic Parade; and Jamaican Folk Song.
