Customer Rating:   12 Reviews Write a Review


Fantasies & Delusions (Music for Solo Piano, Op. 1-10). Composed by Billy Joel. For Piano. Piano Solo Personality. 20th Century. SMP Level 7 (Late Intermediate). Collection. Standard notation, fingerings and introductory text (does not include words to the songs). 96 pages. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.306454).

ISBN 0634038354. With standard notation, fingerings and introductory text (does not include words to the songs). 20th Century. 9x12 inches.

Fantasies & Delusions is the next chapter in Billy Joel's life-long love affair with the piano. Before the world-renowned 'Piano Man' ever discovered pop, he grew up studying classical piano, already feeling the influences of Beethoven, Bach, Chopin, Schubert, Schumann and many others. Although he ran away with the seductress named Rock'n'Roll as a teenager, 30 years later he returns to where he began to pay tribute to the music that made him fall in love with music in the first place. This matching folio features all 12 pieces from the album, as performed by Richard Joo.

  • March 26, 2014 Fantasies and Delusions

    I was classically trained as a pianist, but have always loved and played all kinds of music. My children introduced me to Rock n Roll! I love Billy Joel's songs and was thrilled to learn he composed this classical music. I bought the cd as well. My favorite is...

    nunleys waltz. A truly modern day musical genius!

  • December 26, 2009 Amazing Classical Music!!

    Even though you think of Billy Joel for "Piano Man", or "The Stranger" here is a book with, arguably, his best compositions he's ever written. I bought the music with the CD, and it is perfect! The notes in the book match the CD to the very minute details...

    ! I recommend this book to any Billy Joel fan or classical musician. With Schirmer publishing it, you know you have accurate music!

  • August 11, 2008 Billy (William) Joel

    I thought this was 'the' Billy Joel - Mr Piano Man, however although the cover says Billy Joel in big letters, then you see that it's actually a 'William Joel'. Not quite the same bloke! Will give it a go though. [Editor's note: these pieces, while more classical in...

    nature, are written by the same Billy Joel who wrote "Piano Man."]

  • July 23, 2007 An Interesting Diversion at Best

    Get this if you want to be able to say, "I'm now going to play a piece by Billy Joel." Since that may stir interest in an audience, that’s ok. The pieces are not terrible. This music is obviously not written by a great composer. The themes and...

    developments don’t often go anywhere exciting. Although it’s 1700-1800’s inspired, it doesn’t follow the music theory rules of those eras, sometimes resulting in a helter-skelter feel when large leaps are taken or an uneven feel on small steps. There are no pedal marks, but sustain is used on the (separate) CD –usually for color the way trained pianists interpret Mozart, and few articulations are given yet there’s no text explanation section like in Alfred Masterworks. The only piece suitable for an early-intermediate level player would be the pleasant sounding “Invention in C Minor�, which is played in Baroque style on the CD – slight separation between notes. The other pieces are all late intermediate to advanced in difficulty.
