Sonatinas for the Learners Level
edited by Tinka Knopf de Estaban
A collection of thirteen works with pedagogical comments meant as a guide for learning each work for use in conjuction with The Piano Curriculum Guide. It includes the following composers: William Duncombe, Jeremiah Clarke, Thomas Attwood, Leopold Mozart, E. Gayrhos, Ignaz Joseph Pleyel, James Hook, Muzio Clementi, Matthew Camidge, Albert Biehl, Tobias Haslinger, Johann Anton Andre. “There are many valid collecions of sonatinas available. The purpose of this collection is to consolidate into one place the initial works for the study of sonata form. These are the sonatinas listed under the Classical period in the Piano Curriculum Chart. When I established the teaching order, it was with the idea of presenting a growth pattern in the formal and technical structure of the first classical works leading to sonata form. The technical control for these works is to be found in the Technique section of the Piano Curriculum Chart. This would indicate that the scale passage work would require no more than one octave scales, triads of three notes unless presented as a broken chord, and limited facility. The order of works was based on the structure of the form.” Tinka Knopf de Esteban.
