5 Miniatures for Flute and Piano, Op92

“Lovely Kronke for intermediates.”
Here are some more delightful pieces from Emil Kronke. He writes so well for developing players, keeping the technical challenges simple but adding sumptuous harmonies underneath - he was a renowned accompanist in his day and this shows in his piano writing. The opening Gavotte in G major uses simple rhythms and melodies repeated at the end in the upper octave, whist the Waltz is simple enough to be played in 1 in a bar. Melodie is a lovely tune over a running quavers and Momento giocoso is just that - a happy moment in a sunny C major! The fifth movement, Etude mignonne, is all about semiquavers and is the hardest of the set. Any of these pieces would be great for a concert and it will be a book that will be used repeatedly over the years. A good investment I think!
