In the last issue of Pianist I rediscovered a favorite sonatina. Opus 36 No. 5, third movement, has a sweet melody, so sweet in fact that it become a pop song in 1960's. My student who loves Pop Music decided that this piece could meet his approval.
I can find this magazine at Barnes and Noble and it is worth the $12.99.
