Braune: With Four Hands Through Children's Land
20 Children's Song Settings for Piano four-hands - Illustrations by Ralph Bittner
All aboard and bon voyage!
Ingo Braune's "Children's Land" is a very colorful and sparkling musical land indeed. Evergreens like "Hot-Cross Buns" and "Sur le pont d'Avignon" as well as many lesser-known European children's songs invite young performers to a four-hand journey of discovery. Whoever enjoyed "Through Europe With Four Hands" (EB 8734) is sure to love this sequel, which is enlivened by Ralph Bittner's perky illustrations. In these technically easy pieces, both players share in bringing out the melody of the song. And after reading the useful information in the appendix, everyone should be ready to hop on the train for this four-handed trip to children's land!
