Two Movements from Seven Characteristic Pieces, Op. 7
Explore the riches of Mendelssohn in this arrangement of two piano works dating from his teenage years. The first offers an opportunity for beautifully lyrical playing. The second is a brilliantly constructed fugue that builds to an electrifying conclusion. It will take your students out of the textbook, and engage them in augmentation, diminution, inversion, stretto, and pedal tones.
