All 'Antica

composer: Goeyens, Alphonse (1894-?)
title: All 'Antica
publisher: Southern
level: High School Advanced
range: b flat’
description: Although written in the 20th century, this piece is in the classical style as its title infers. From the heroic beginning theme to the expressive middle theme, the piece is attractive and not overly difficult. We suggest observing the optional “cut” to delete a rather awkward section that does not seem to fit with the rest of the piece. The difficulties of this piece are in the sixteenth-note phrases which sit at the top of the staff; it is a very good introduction to the classical style for someone not yet ready for the Haydn and Hummell concerti
