Burgmuller - 25 Progressive Pieces Opus 100 (Alfred)
Burgmüller's most famous work, the 25 Progressive Pieces, are short compositions with descriptive titles. Easier than his Op. 105 and 109, each selection exposes students to a different technical challenge with the main emphasis on the phrasing, articulation, and dynamics often found in Romantic piano music. The collection includes "Arabesque" and "Ballade," both popular with many early-intermediate pianists.
