Pièces Enfantines

Opus : 14
Date of composition : 1929

Publisher : Armiane
Duration : 5' (2' + 2' + 1')
Technical level : easy

The "Pièces enfantines" are three short, easy piano pieces for children : "Badinage" (Having fun), "Méditations" (Meditating) and "Les deux papillons" (The two butterflies). They have a common point, something poetical and dreamy, either expressed with a witty spirit (first and third pieces) or delivering a healing power of quietness (the chords of the second piece).
