James L. King III composes many “style” pieces that are reminiscent of a decade or musical era. Four of his Sonatinas composed in the style of Clementi, Kuhlau and Beethoven are collected in this series. Each Sonatina is two movements in length.
Sonatina No. 1 is the easiest in the collection, while the other three are slightly more advanced.
