  • August 08, 2012 Fun for styling

    Many might look at this piece and find it simple, boring and uninspired, but this piece must be approached with the style it was meant, fiddling. The piece was originally written for an dance with lots of energy. Keep the energy up and think about fiddling techniques including swinging some...

    of the rhythm and this piece will live and will be a favorite with the musicians and the audience.

  • June 24, 2012 Disappointing - warmed over "Simple Gifts"

    I had expected this to be an original piece, or at least something "celtic" as described, but was disappointed to learn it was just a remake -- and not all that interesting one -- of "Simple Gifts" which is a fine tune, but I wouldn't ever call it "Celtic." Also, it...

    's much easier than the level 3-4 assigned it. Won't be able to use this for my advanced intermediate orchestra, except maybe as a warm-up - too dull for performance!

  • March 06, 2009 Love it.

    The is an excellent fun piece for the young of heart. Very light and lively; the strings love the balance in instrumentation. Not too heavily slanted toward the Violin 1. I love this piece for my youth quartet and for my professional quartet too. Very upbeat; well written.
