In Recital, Book 5 opens with an expressive Notturno by Valerie Roth Roubos, affording the chance to demonstrate beautifully sustained legato line, and other accomplishments, learned in earlier books. Equal-part duets by Bober (Rustic Dance), Olson (A Christmas Medley: Ukranian Bell Carol / What Child is This?), and McLean (Edward Elgar s Pomp and Circumstance, Op. 39, No. 1), expand the student s understanding of ensemble play, while four challenging new solos round out the repertoire. Triplets, one and two octave scale passages, rolled chords, double thirds, simple ornamentation and playing two voices within the same hand are introduced and explored in the teaching pages and the CD. Also includes: Notturno (Valerie Roth Roubos); Eagle's Flight (Melody Bober); Sicilienne from Pelleas et Melisande, Op. 78 (Faure arr. Kevin Olson); Etude in A Minor (Martin Cuellar); Meditation in the Rain (Timothy Brown).
