These short, pleasing pieces assist early-intermediate pianists in developing overall musicianship and technique. The collection contains sonatas, minuets, an "Aria" and a "Pastoral" written in binary form. Halford provides suggestions for style and interpretation in a foreword, and includes fingering, phrasing and notated ornaments in light print within each composition. This is an important volume for students new to Scarlatti's brilliant and lyrical keyboard styles.
