Description: Tansman was very interested in providing young pianists with a "bridge" from scales and exercises to actual repertoire and wrote a fair number of such volumes of short pieces, many on commission from famous publishers. Pour les enfants (1933) is in four volumes (12, 12, 12, and 10 pieces) of ascending difficulty; some pieces were excerpted for recital performances by professional pianists. The Miniatures were written in Beverly Hills in 1945. Elzbieta Tyszecka (piano).
