Description: The final album in this series brings mostly music based on children's songs or evoking scenes of childhood, although the elaboration and complexity of much of this music demands top-level virtuosity (the 11th Guia Prático of 1949 was dedicated to Horszowski). Ibericarabe and the two excerpts from incidental music for a stage play (Marqueza do Santos) are, in effect, high quality, virtuosic salon music. Sonia Rubinsky (piano).
