Novellas, Book 1

Seven Original Solos for the Developing Artist

by Tom Gerou

The Novellas are composed in a variety of contemporary styles, offering unique technical challenges for study while providing musically satisfying and appealing performance pieces. The compositions are carefully created to challenge the pianist with  the most well-crafted pieces possible. Reminiscent of 19th-century character pieces, they provide interesting musical development and complexity while remaining short (similar to treatment of musical ideas in a sonatina). Some pieces have descriptive titles, others are open to interpretation, but each conveys some form of musical narrative that is both satisfying and rewarding.

Novellas, Books 1 and 2 come highly recommended. This series is a valuable library addition for the teacher who is looking for performance pieces in contemporary styles that will both inspire and motivate students. Moreover, these pieces serve as an exceptional example of accessible twenty-first century compositions that are artistic, as well as musically exciting.”—CAPMT Connect: The Journal of the California Association of Professional Music Teachers , Fall 2021 • Volume 6, Number 2, Gail Lew, Reviewer
