Item Number: S0.21722

Arrangement by concert pianist and composer Daniela Mastrandrea of my "Sweet Suite" - a four movement sequence originally written for string quintet.This 2-hands piano version is fairly difficult and requires large stretches at times, but for those who like a challenge it is well worth it.However, we decided it would be good to provide 4-hands versions as well, which are easier to perform and also available on this site.The original stories behind the movements are:1. Marie for shame - based on a setting of the poem Marie, vous estes paresseuse - Marie for shame you keep a-bed too long, you must get up and enjoy life.2. Nocturne is basically a segue to the first movement, in which Marie yawns and goes back to sleep! The harmonies are rich and yet somnolent.3. Camp David is a sprightly number based on the Yiddish folksong Ikh bin a meidel in de joren - I am a maiden come of age and I am looking for a husband.4. Blue Boar Blue is based on a poem by a friend stuck studying in his college room (Blue Boar Quad at Christ Church Oxford) but dreaming of sunny outings to the river and punting.The sound samples are electronic previews.In the case of the 4-hands versions, the pdf files include the score and also separate piano parts.The original string quintets are also available on this site.
