Bradford Werner plays Impressions soleil couchant (à Francis Poulenc) by Roland Dyens (1955-2016) and via my YouTube. I’ll be trying to post weekly student and intermediate pieces so you can discover new repertoire to play. I love this simple hommage to Poulenc that I’ll pair with Poulenc’s Sarabande. This comes from Dyen’s Vol. 1 of Les 100 de Roland Dyens which contains 100 intermediate pieces. The pieces are almost small motivic improvisations and etudes forming an unpretentious collection of musical flavours.
- Les 100 de Roland Dyens Vol.1 – includes the above piece
- Les 100 de Roland Dyens Vol.2
$63 is pretty steep! Any edition cheaper?
Not that I know of but the book does have 50 pieces in it!
and the pieces are all available as individual purchases.
Great, do you have a link for it?
