S’amuse le temps
“S’amuse le temps” is a playful little piece that is simple and carefree. The left hand plays a two-bar pattern that repeats throughout the piece, and the right hand plays the melody. Composed in the key of D minor (two flats), following the dynamics and accents is a must. Recommended for pianists at an upper-intermediate level. 3 pages
Valse pour Annie
“Valse pour Annie” is a sweet and charming little dance with a slightly bittersweet flavor. Played at a moderately lively tempo, it is graceful and fun to play. Composed in the key of A major with many expression markings to follow, an upper-intermediate pianist should be able to master it without difficulty. 4 pages
Souvenirs de recre
“Souvenirs de recre” is a lively and expressive piece that is also fun to play. Upbeat and playful, it dances around in mostly the mid-range of the piano. It is composed in G minor, and all of the dynamics and other expression is clearly marked. It is suitable for pianists of an upper-intermediate playing level.

“Comme si” is slow and somewhat moody with an Alberti bass left hand throughout most of the piece. The piece was composed for piano and a C instrument (keyboard, strings, flute, etc.), although most of the second part is improvised with suggestions given. As a piano solo, the piece also works well since most of the given notation for the second instrument is the same as the piano part - the improvised sections would of course be different. Because the left hand on the piano part is very repetitive, this is not a difficult piece to play. Adding the second instrument would add a bit of a challenge, but one that would be fun and creative.
