The Art of the Piano, Volume 2

Piano - Advanced
Masterful Solos for Christmas by Mark Hayes. Composed by Mark Hayes. Sacred, Christmas. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.70-1771L).

Item Number: LO.70-1771L

Advanced - The amazingly versatile composer Mark Hayes writes artistically for intermediate pianists, but at heart, he is a performer who loves to let the entire piano sing. We encouraged him to do just that in his 2010 book "The Art of the Piano" (70/1719L), and musicians across the country flocked to these challenging, pianistic arrangements. In this volume, we have asked Mark to take that same approach to familiar Christmas repertoire, creating a book that skilled pianists everywhere will want to perform at church, school, or by the fireside at home.

    I've been a fan of Mark Hayes for some time. This book is as good as the others, with a good variety of styles and songs, and is at a good level of difficulty for me--challenging but not too difficult. I would recommend this book to others.

  • January 03, 2012 Mark Hayes, Great writing

    Hallelujah Joy is a fun mix of Joy to the World and the Hallelujah Chorus with a gospel beat. Break Forth, O Beauteous Heavenly Light is a marvelous arrangement of the hymn Bach made famous. Way to go, Mark! Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring was a bit disappointing, but...

    everything is so good, it's hard to be too critical. Everything else was absolutely lovely and well written!

  • December 26, 2011 Great Christmas Music

    The best thing about this collection is that each of the songs is set in a different style, using a different collection of piano techniques. So each song is unique, and yet characteristic for its nature. The settings are challenging for non-pianists, but the variety makes the collection worth...

    having. A good contribution to the piano player who needs to present Christmas music to a demanding audience.
