Garden Treasures – Carol Klose

Posted by on October 29, 2010

Another book I purchased on a whim during the most recent Hal Leonard sale was ‘Garden Treasures’ – Five Pieces for Piano Solo by Carol Klose.

My favourite out of them is ‘Dandelion Wishes’.  It is a gently flowing piece, easy to tell the story (as are all of them) however the book is a late intermediate level.  Lots of hand crossing over and pedaling.

I was playing through the book and the imagery of gardens with beautiful flowers and tranquil settings is evident throughout these pieces.  They are:-

  1. Daffodil Caprice
  2. Dandelion Wishes
  3. The Healing Garden
  4. Jasmine in the Mist
  5. Water Lily Garden

I think it’s one that some of my girls would love to play, perhaps too gentle for the boys unless you have some male students who love those gentle, flowing pieces.
