COMPOSER OF THE MONTH - GURLITT

Thursday, November 1, 2018 by Claire Eldred | Composer of the Month

Cornelius Gurlitt… Not one of those huge names like Mozart or Beethoven, and an unusual one for composer of the month, but soooooo important and I'll bet all of you have played several of his pieces without really noticing! As a music teacher, he wrote many pieces that we play today to help us with tricky techniques and dexterity. I even chose one of his pieces to be played by the organist at my wedding! Have a look through your books and see if you can find something that you've played that was written by him, polish it up and show me at out next lesson.
