Northern Lights Level 9 Repertoire & Etudes
Northern Lights Canadian National Conservatory of Music is pleased to continue its progressive series Northern Lights – An Exploration of Canadian Piano Music with this Level 9 collection which includes both Repertoire and Etudes. CNCM is indeed proud to give Canadian composers a voice with these publications as well as to educate and share Canadian repertoire with advancing performers. Twenty-two talented Canadian composers from coast to coast have contributed twenty-two appealing pieces for Level 9 Repertoire and Etudes.
Several pieces have been identified in the table of contents as etudes, for examination purposes. This collection is useful as a resource for a variety of functions and levels: Canadian content for festivals, recitals, examinations, sight reading, quick study, and supplemental material. To facilitate the learning process, fingerings and measure numbers have been included. Metronome markings are suggested tempi. Photos of the composers are included with the biographies as well as program notes for each piece.
The compositions are written in a wide variety of moods and styles. In addition, there is a substantial range of difficulty within this level to accommodate all capabilities. In the selection process, consideration was given to style, skill level, variety of metre, tonality, and pedagogical features. The result is a delightful assortment of pieces for the 21st century musician by Canadian composers who inspire the imagination of both performer and audience.
