Monthly Update - June 22nd, 2020
Hello, students and piano lovers, It’s been a month since our last update… With the whole world in turmoil over the Coronavirus and its consequences, it’s hard to notice how time flies… We have some excellent news for you today. Hopefully, it will help to motivate you to learn PENTA™, our revolutionary method that will have you playing with both hands within a few months! So, at Piano Esperanto, we are busy creating more content for you to play by. We already have on-site for purchase (at a very low price) five books: The Classics, the Hymns, the Christmas, the Marches, and the Israelis. Within the next month or two, we will release seven(!) new songbooks with some exciting music styles to cater to your taste.
The Waltzes Waltzes are lovely. The ¾ rhythm is very suitable for dancing. They have become extremely popular in the 19th century with very famous pieces by Johann Strauss II and many others. We’ve included ten beautiful waltzes by Strauss and Tchaikovsky.
The Tangos Tangos were born in Argentina in the 19th century. It is the ultimate partner dance. We’ve included ten magnificent tangos composed by the fantastic Carlos Gardel (1890-1935), one of the great Tango composers.
Carmen The opera Carmen by Georges Bizet was first performed in 1875 in Paris. It has since become one of the most popular and frequently performed operas. We’ve included ten beautiful songs from the opera.
The Romantics During the romantic era (end of the 19th century), we were blessed with many beautiful pieces from Debussy, Liszt, Shubert, Ravel, and more. We’ve included ten beautiful pieces from this wonderful era.
The Arias Opera is one of the purest and most admirable artforms. We’ve included ten popular arias from famous operas of Verdi, Puccini, and more.
The Folks Folk songs are the soundtrack of our childhood into our later years. They are well known and quite easy to play and enjoy. We’ve included ten well-known folk songs from the US, England, Australia, and more.
Chopin Frederic Chopin (1810-1849) has probably become, despite his short life, the composer who is most identified with the piano. We’ve included ten of his most beloved waltzes, mazurkas, and polonaises.
All our songbooks contain easily scanned barcodes for each song/musical piece. You’ll be able to learn about it, get the lyrics (when relevant), hear a well-known performance as well as, most importantly, the performance of the song in PENTA by our piano artist, Yanna.
Follow us on Facebook and through this mail list to get the news as the songbooks are gradually released soon!
Have a safe and enjoyable week,
The team at piano Esperanto
