    Violin Concerto Movement 2 (Mendelssohn) – Piano Solo

    $3.99$8.99

    This incredibly beautiful movement from Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto has been arranged here for piano solo. Best for late elementary to early intermediate pianists, this arrangement requires a graceful touch, gentle tone, legato, rubato, and expressive dynamics. No pedal; it’s all about finger technique here and balancing melody with accompaniment. At times the melody transitions from RH to LH, and the melodic path is marked with dashed lines to help students keep track of it. This arrangement is accessible for smaller pianists: there’s no pedal, the slow tempo facilitates larger melodic stretches, and the largest harmonic interval is P5. Also makes a lovely performance piece.

Perfect for any early intermediate pianist and a great choice for a classical recital piece.

  • Can-Can (Offenbach)

    $3.99$8.99

    The famous Can-Can music comes from Offenbach’s opera “Orpheus in the Underworld”, from which the selection “Galop Infernal” was adopted by Paris cabarets for their can-can dances. This intermediate level arrangement contains not only the main theme, but represents the full range of themes from this dramatic opera number. Filled with exciting articulations, bold dynamics, and more, this lively arrangement is the perfect crowd pleaser and performs excellently as a well-known early intermediate piano recital choice.

    BONUS: Because the largest harmonic interval is a Major 6th, pianists with small hands can easy play this without sacrificing musicality or altering chords. (LH octaves at the end are optional.)
