       A Selection of Your First Sonatinas

             Book II

             with CD










This book contains a collection of the most beautiful and in many cases rare little sonatinas, which are quite easy to play.
Sonatina is the diminutive form of sonata, which means a "little sonata". Sonata origianally means a piece "played" (Latin: sonare = to sound) as opposed to Cantata a piece "sung" (cantare = to sing).
The CD, enclosed, should be a great help in assisting students to achieve the required style

To get to know a little bit more about the period when the composers lived, you will find short biographies and a map of the relevant countries, towards the back of this album of their time.
