A Guide to the Trinity College Piano Syllabus
Rocherolle - La chapelle (from Souvenirs du château)
Trinity College (Alternative) - Grade 7
This evocative piece by American pianist and composer Eugénie Rocherolle is somewhere between Romantic and musical theatre in style, making full use of the pedal to build up sonorities from sustained bass notes and rolling harmonies. It is music from the heart, calling for the ability to play freely with rubato and plenty of feeling. It makes a very effective recital piece and will be popular with players and listeners alike.
