  • January 29, 2009 Rich, warm and beautifully scored

    I first learnt this little known piece for Grade 7 piano solo(I highly recommend this also!) and was instantly charmed by the beautiful richness and clear sense of melody - it is very typical of Graingers style. This arrangement for piano/violin or piano/cello makes even more of the...

    piece. It is challenging for both players, but is very rewarding. I discovered a recording of this arrangement for piano and viola - and having read through the music while playing the CD can say it is note for note identical, except that the viola plays the melody as written above the piano score. The CD is: English Music for Viola Paul Coletti (viola), Leslie Howard (piano). This is one of my favourite pieces of music, and this is the best arrangement (original) there is!

  • January 16, 2009 beautiful, unusual Christmas solo

    This is a little known Christmas piece, a lovely arrangement, and somewhat difficult for both soloist and accompanist. It is based on the piano solo by Granger, and is true to the original. It requires an artistic touch, and leaves audiences smiling. I have taught piano and accompanied advanced students...

    for years.
