Famous Pieces in Easy Arrangements for Piano DuetInstrument : piano (4 hands)Nombre de Pages : 72Die vorliegende Sammlung von Bearbeitungen klassischer Highlights fÃ¼r Klavier zu vier HÃ¤nden schlieÃŸt in der Flut an vorhandener Unterrichtsliteratur insofern eine LÃ¼cke, als sie sich bemÃ¼ht, die pÃ¤dagogische Eignung solcher bzw. Ã¤hnlicher Arrangements mit dem kÃ¼nstlerischen Anspruch der Originalwerke auf einen Nenner zu bringen. Das Neue liegt dabei weniger in der Auswahl der gebotenen StÃ¼cke, deren Motivationswert auf der Hand liegt. Vielmehr wurde versucht, Material sehr leichten bis mittleren Schwierigkeitsgrades bereitzustellen, ohne in die typische, so oft anzutreffende strukturelle Verarmung und klangliche SprÃ¶de zu verfallen, die das Original auf geradezu strÃ¤fliche Weise entstellen kÃ¶nnen. Daher wurde (wie auch in bewÃ¤hrten Vorbildern aus dem Elementarbereich) die Einrichtung in SchÃ¼ler- und Lehrerpart gewÃ¤hlt, die folgenden zwei Aspekten Rechnung trÃ¤gt:Der Lernende sollte - thematisch gesehen - Ã¼berwiegend die Erste Geige spielen dÃ¼rfen, wobei hinsichtlich der Spielbarkeit, auch in der Reihenfolge der StÃ¼cke, besonderer Wert auf eine Ausgewogenheit von sog. technischem und musikalischem Anspruch gelegt wird. Der naturgemÃ¤ÃŸ reichhaltigere Lehrerpart Ã¼bernimmt unter diesen Voraussetzungen alle Ã¼brigen wesentlichen Elemente des Originals, ohne den SchÃ¼ler zu dominieren, - Gut mÃ¶glich, dass so auch wir Lehrer da und dort einmal zur Freude unserer SchÃ¼ler ans Ãœben kommen.Content : Smetana: The Moldau - Bizet: HabaÃ±era (â€˜Carmenâ€™) - Tchaikovsky: Dance of the Fairy DragÃ©e (â€˜The Nutcrackerâ€™) - Bach: Badinerie (2nd Orchestral Suite in B minor) - Grieg: Morning (â€˜Peer Gyntâ€™) - Mozart: Ha, how I shall triumph (â€˜The Abduction from the Seraglioâ€™) - Bizet: Prelude (â€˜Carmenâ€™) - Rossini: Overture to â€˜William Tellâ€™ - Tchaikovsky: Scene from â€˜Swan Lakeâ€™ - Grieg: In the Hall of the Mountain King (â€˜Peer Gyntâ€™) - Tchaikovsky: Trepak (Russian Dance) from â€˜The Nutcrackerâ€™
Inspired by the composer´s travels in Russia, this original two-movement work is in the style of the Russian folk song. The first movement is a mournfully beautiful lyric work written in a lush, contemporary setting. The second movement brings to life the spirit of the peasants as the dance in village festivities to celebrate the end of harvest. This would make a great multicultural addition to your next concert.

It´s a familiar scene in organizations today: a new competitive threat or a big opportunity emerges. You quickly create a strategic initiative in response and appoint your best people to make change happen. And it does - but not fast enough. Or effectively enough. Real value gets lost and, ultimately, things drift back to the default status. Why is this scenario so frequently repeated in industries and organizations across the world? In the groundbreaking new book Accelerate (XLR8), leadership and change management expert, and best-selling author, John Kotter provides a fascinating answer - and a powerful new framework for competing and winning in a world of constant turbulence and disruption. Kotter explains how traditional organizational hierarchies evolved to meet the daily demands of running an enterprise. For most companies, the hierarchy is the singular operating system at the heart of the firm. But the reality is, this system simply is not built for an environment where change has become the norm. Kotter advocates a new system - a second, more agile, network-like structure that operates in concert with the hierarchy to create what he calls a ´´dual operating system´´ - one that allows companies to capitalize on rapid-fire strategic challenges and still make their numbers. Accelerate (XLR8) vividly illustrates the five core principles underlying the new network system, the eight Accelerators that drive it, and how leaders must create urgency in others through role modeling. And perhaps most crucial, the book reveals how the best companies focus and align their people´s energy and urgency around what Kotter calls the big opportunity. If you´re a pioneer, a leader who knows that bold change is necessary to survive and thrive in an ever-changing world, this book will help you accelerate into a better, more profitable future.

Instrument : pianoNombre de Pages : 39The Nutcracker Suite is a piano arrangement of the concert version of the ballet of that name. Tchaikovsky used only part of the music for the ballet in the suite. The Overture, and the March which is the most important of the characteristic dances in the Suite, come from the first act of the ballet. The remaining dances originate from the second act. They are: The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, in which the leading part is, in the original composition, played typically by the celeste almost all the way through; the fiery Russian Trepak which reminds us of Tchaikovsky´s national origins; the Arab Dance tinged with a gentle melancholy; the Chinese Dance with its tripping ostinato rhythm; the graceful Dance of the Reed Flutes; and finally the longest piece in the Suite: the Waltz of the Flowers in which Tchaikovsky, writing in the penultimate year of his life, showed his musical affinity with Johann Strauss.The Nutcracker Suite was perfomed for the first time, with great success, on 7 March 1892 at the Ninth Symphony Concert of the Russian Musical Society in St Petersburg.Content : Vorwort - Preface - Préface - Ouverture - March - Dance of the Fairy Dragée - The fiery Trepak - Dance Arabe - Chinese Dance - Dance of the Mirlitons - Flower Waltz
