Example text

Op. 148/3. Level: Late Intermediate. (G major, 2/4, allegro con delicatezza). A tentative, tip-toeing melody is played against staccato fourths and fifths in cakewalk rhythms, alternated between hands. Rapid changes of register make this work harder than it appears. Op. 148/4. Level: Mid-Intermediate. (G-flat major, 4/4, molto lento e tranquillo). Like a Satie Gymnopédie, the calm right hand melody moves down the scale in a sequential motif, as the left hand rises in a countermelody. Later, a dominant pedal appears on a third staff.

Calvert Johnson (Vivace Press, forthcoming). Ouverture de Fleur d’Epine. Level of difficulty: Medium. Arranged for harpsichord or fortepiano with ad. lib. accompaniment of violin and cello. Benoit. (Publication notes by Calvert Johnson). SOURCES: B&T, Cohen, Ebel, Eitner, ElsonA, Fetis, G&F, H&H, Heinrich, Jackson, Laurence, Meggett, S&S, Stern, score BEACH, Amy Marcy (née Cheney; Mrs. Beach) b. Henniker, New Hampshire, Sep 5, 1867—d. New York, Dec 27, 1944 Amy Beach, the foremost American woman composer of her time, was the first to achieve success as a composer of large-scale works.

Key signature and harmonies shift continually. Op. 97/3. Mignonette. (G major, 3/4, tempo di menuetto, 4 pp). A delicate minuet with staccato, pp chords. Op. 97/4. Rosemary and Rue. (E minor/major, 2/4, andante con sentimento, 6 pp). The simplest of this set; a tender pas de deux . In the right hand the soprano and alto alternately hold tied notes and sigh in a descending chromatic figure, accompanied by a “plucked” broken-chord bass. (In the language of flowers, Rosemary is for remembrance, Rue is for regret).
