THE BOOK, E-BOOK WITH SINGLE-USER LICENCE
This new collection by Elena Cobb presents four virtuoso piano pieces in the Romantic Style for Advanced Level. Filled with flamboyant octaves, cascading double notes and delicate trills, they offer young pianists a great opportunity to show off their skills on stage and during examinations. Book 2 includes two brand-new pieces, the Débutante Grand Valse and the Peacock Grand Valse, as well as the Russian Bells Étude-Tableau that first appeared in International Piano Magazine in November 2016, and the Arabia Étude-Tableau that was released in 2014 and is frequently performed by young pianists at such venues as Carnegie Hall and the Royal Albert Hall. In order to offer performers the best direction for their interpretation, the editors have given detailed instructions for pedalling, dynamics and articulation. Suggested fingering may be amended to suit the needs of the individual pianist.

AUDIO / VIDEO
Débutante Grande Valse by Elena Cobb is written in a traditional for the Romantic waltz form and will appeal to piano players at the advanced level or Gr 7-8 ABRSM. It offers a variety of technical challenges and will be a very attractive piece to include in the recital performance programme or A Level Music exam. A Débutante is a girl or young woman of an aristocratic or upper-class family who has reached maturity and, as a new adult, comes out into society at a formal “debut”.
Arabia Étude-Tableau for piano is a modern Romantic piece with the Oriental feel. It evokes a fleeting memory of a train journey I took with my parents across the desert as a child. Filled with flamboyant octaves, it will offer a great opportunity for a young virtuoso to show off his skill as a performer.
Russian Bells, La Petite Étude-Tableauis a Romantic style miniature for late intermediate level by Elena Cobb, and one will be forgiven for thinking that the Étude is filled with triumphant chords that mimic great cathedral bells of Russia. That is simply not the case as the piece contains only one bar at forte!
Romantic style piece that features some technical challenge. The Peacock Grand Waltz (late intermediate/advanced level) includes octaves and double thirds in the right hand as well as other delightful hallmarks of a virtuoso piece.
