    'Elegies' is a wonderful song cycle, a very moving and personal statement from the always-insightful William Finn. The selections included in this volume naturally lean toward the solo numbers, but there is one example of Finn's superb vocal ensemble writing with "Mr. Choi & Madame Gi". The piano transcriptions...

    provide a good basic accompaniment, which a really skillful pianist can further flesh out. I would have been even more pleased if more titles had been included, but I'm thrilled to finally be able to introduce my audience to "Infinite Joy" - and I'm sure other numbers will be finding their way into other programes in the future.

  • 2007-06-29 00:00:00.0 I would like to say it's been a pleasure

    This arrangement was rather pleasing. I found the selection of songs contained within a good choice from the whole work. I also loved the omition of the 'Boom Boom' section from the final number. The voice and piano parts are blended well together and are great guides but also allow...

    you freedom to create much more as you see fit. Worth buying for any Musical Theatre fan.

    It's a wonderful songbook with wonderful songs. Now at least we know what great chords William Finn used to write such memorable songs. It's a pitty not all the songs are in it but this is all we have. It is certainly a valuable item to add to...

    your library or to use for auditions.
