WSMA Contest Number 7111A7 Piano Solo
Romance, Op. 24, No. 9 by Jean Sibelius (1865-1957). Edited by Maurice Hinson. For Piano. Masterworks; Piano Solo; Solo. Alfred Masterwork Edition. 20th Century; Masterwork; Romantic. SMP Level 9 (Advanced). Sheet. 8 pages. Published by Alfred Music Publishing (AP.3602).
This beautiful character piece in D-flat Major was written in 1903 but is still an excellent example of 19th Century romanticism, with rolling right hand chordal accompaniment over a cello-like "expressivo" melody. The piece becomes fairly challenging in its later sections, with octave and cadenza work. Biographical and performance notes are included.
