A sophisticated, new modern sonatina in which Berr uses a contemporary tonal style in the tradition of Kabalevsky is beautifully written for the intermediate student. The three movements are: I. The Dakotas-Neo-classical style, follows classical structure showing form in a modern style. II. Mystery of the Ravine-impressionistic tone painting of a western scene. III. Desert Rainstorm-In 6/8 meter, marked "Presto scherzando" features chromaticism and cross-hand playing.
