Grade 7

Moszkowski - Calme du soir (No. 2 from 10 petits morceaux, Op. 94)

Moritz Moszkowski was a German pianist and composer of Polish descent, an important figure in the pedagogical world of his time whose studies and exercises are still considered among the very best of their type. Calme du soir (The Calm of the Evening) is written in the Romantic style featuring rich, often chromatic harmony with a melody line that is often on the top of the RH but with inner voices that can be brought out every now and then (the alto of bars 6 and 8, for example). Achieving the right tonal balance between the hands and within the RH is the biggest single challenge and artful pedalling is an absolute must to bring the piece together.
