    I first heard this orchestrated on Public Radio [WSMC] and found it so delightful that I made the effort to find a piano solo to purchase. Probably the piece if more effective with the variety provided by an orchestra. However, I enjoy playing the piece and am glad to have...

    it. I was, however, TERRIBLY DISAPPOINTED to have it printed with the quite dull, actually insipid Yesnaby Ground. In fact, I felt downright cheated. There was a slight improvement when played up to speed but it still deteriorated sadly in the middle and it provides no inspiration to work it up to a performance level.

  • August 27, 2008 Achingly Beautiful

    Farewell to Stromness is a piece that will captivate you instantly - simple in construct, but just beautiful and with a wonderful message. This piece was written for what was essentially a protest against uranium mining that would have destroyed Stromness on the Orkney Islands where Sir Peter Maxwell Davies lives...

    . It captures both the "green" spirit and a certain sparseness that must be what you would find in those Islands.

  • July 23, 2007 Farewell to Stomness

    This is wonderful litle piece at a fairly slow tempo. This was a piece I heard on our classical music station and was quite taken by it. It's not hard except for a few bars that move to 4 sharps. I loved the melody - a little haunting. There is...

    a brief write-up about the background of the piece and that gives it even more meaning.

  • March 31, 2007 Nice Piece

    I haven't played Yesnaby Ground, yet, but Farewell to Stromness is VERY nice. It's easy to sight-read if you are playing Debussy, Mozart, Chopin, Schumann, etc. It's harder the next time you sit down, though, because you start paying closer attention to the rythms, which are...

    hard to do consistently, or to the few very big chords. It's frustrating when you feel like being a perfectionist but great when you just want to play something nice in the evening. Perfect for a "my glory days were in High School" pianist like me.

  • December 09, 2004 Farewell to Stromness:A Legacy Forgotten

    Farewell to Stromness... the sad,piercing title brings a certain solemness. The piece itself, by Peter Maxwell Davies, is sad and beautiful. It brings back memories, both morose and joyful. Its smooth, calming rythm relaxes the soul and cleanses the heart. It is long forgotten by those intrigued by other...

    music of the 21st century, but its haunting notes linger forever.
