ISBN 9781423411390. 9x12 inches. Jennifer Linn Late Elementary Level.

Les Petites Images is a perfect introduction to Jennifer Linn's popular intermediate-level book in French style, Les Petites Impressions. Like that book, the seven solos in this easier collection in impressionist style evoke detailed images of the titles. Although these solos are at a late-elementary level, there are quite a few “easy-sounds-hard” gems in this book that will make those younger students sound very accomplished. Early-intermediate students may also find these pieces very enjoyable to learn or read through.

To familiarize students with notation found in Debussy and Ravel, titles have been written in French with English subtitles: expressive instructions are in French as well, and a glossary is provided in the introductory pages. Level: Late-Elementary piano solos (Hal Leonard Student Piano Library Level 3); Keys: F, C; Meters: 4/4, 2/2, 6/8; Range: full staff and leger lines; Note Values: whole notes to eighth notes; Technical features: remains mainly in 5-finger patterns or slightly extended hand poisions; some double thirds; some interlocked h. pos. (R above L in same register), legato pedal, pedal points. Length: 2-4 pages long. Average performance time: 1 minute, 30 seconds.

7 solos: Asteroides (Asteroids) • Hummingbird (L'oiseau-mouche) • Le fin d'hiver (Winter's End) • Le frelon furieux (The Mad Hornet) • Le grand “diese” blanc (The Great White “Sharp”) • Tonnerre sur les plaines (Thunder on the Plains) • Voiliers dans le vent (Sailboats in the Wind).

  • January 20, 2018 Disappointed

    I wanted music that was soothing, beautiful. & relaxing. I think I was misled by the title and the picture on the cover into thinking that was the type of music in this book. I was disappointed because many of the pieces are quite dissonant and/or had to be played...

    extremely fast. It is true that they sound more difficult than they are, which may make them "good recital pieces," but I did not get the enjoyment from playing them that I had hoped for. These are not pieces that I would ever want to play for my friends. I was very glad to be done with this book.

  • December 27, 2009 Very impressive

    This is brilliantly composed. The pieces are relatively easy to play (early intermediate level) but they really sound like French impressionist music, very Debussy-like. I think a student will have to be at an intermediate level rather than late elementary to do these pieces justice.

    I have had tremendous success teaching these Impressionistic-sounding pieces. They are great for transfer students in the middle-grade years! I love the stories that Jennifer writes about each piece and how she came up with the idea for each piece when she wrote them. Well worth the money...
