This series of easy piano music for teaching purposes presents pupils in the lower and lower middle grades with a carefully chosen selection of well-known and lesserknown compositions by important masters. The volumes are deliberately kept small in extent, since it is more stimulating for children to change the teaching material frequently.
In his last years, Mozart composed a large number of “German Dances” for orchestra. This “music for daily use” of the time – intended functionally, for dancing and entertainment – is distinguished by enchanting ideas and simple textures.
The editor has tried to cany over the instrumental subtleties into the piano-duet writing. These dances are particularly suitable for introducing some relaxation into the learning of the piano, for the interpretative and technical workingout demanded by Mozart’s original piano-duet works is not required to the same degree here. The marks of expression have been taken over from the original score and in part supplemented. Notes not marked otherwise are to be played non legato. The technical difficulty of these pieces
corresponds roughly to the third and fourth year of study.
