Bagatelles, Op. 5
By Alexander Tcherepnin / ed. Lynn Freeman Olson
Alfred Masterwork Edition
Alexander Tcherepnin's (1899-1977) Bagatelles are among his finest and most popular keyboard works. The 10 miniatures each span only two to four pages, yet are filled with a variety of mildly contemporary techniques. The more brilliant pieces help to develop a rapid finger technique, while the lyrical works are studies in the balance of melody and accompaniment figures. Lynn Freeman Olson's edition is carefully researched and includes helpful study notes. Bagatelles Nos. 1 and 10 are Federation Festivals 2014-2016 selections.
