Concertino in Latin Styles
By Wynn-Anne Rossi
Piano Duo (2 Pianos, 4 Hands) Book (2 copies required)
Level: Late Elementary
Solo with Piano Accompaniment
Pianists at the late elementary level will experience a variety of Latin styles and rhythms in Wynn-Anne Rossi's Concertino in Latin Styles. The first movement features a bossa nova style, and the second movement captures the rhythm of a tango. The third movement has changing meters, alternating between 6/8 and 2/4, combined with staccato articulation to imitate the sound of claves. For students who love Latin styles or those who will experience them for the first time, this concerto is a refreshing addition to this genre. Movements: Breath of Bossa Nova * Tango by Moonlight * Clave in Tandem.
