  • September 04, 2020 Classical Piano Music for the Christmas Season

    This is a decent collection of evocative music. Not your grandma's book of carols! All are playable except the Percy Grainger piece: as written one would need a second pianist as well! There are many pieces (for instance, those by Caesar Franck and the "Es Ist Ein' Ros' Entsprungen...

    " of Johannes Brahms) originally for the organ, hence the fact that they sound rather simplistic on the piano. The majority are lower intermediate in difficulty and easy enough to learn quickly. I would recommend it to those who also serve as organists if they are pressed for time and need pieces for extra services during the season. It is also a nice book to add supplementary work for students. For advanced pianists: it a good book to practice sight reading from, to further develop that skill. All in all, a decent book at the right price.

  • March 21, 2017 Just as described

    This book is intermediate/advanced and great for church or solo performance. Some passages are discordant, but that's to be expected from classical composers.

    Difficulty Level:
  • January 18, 2016 Exactly as Advertised

    This book includes, exactly as it advertises, Classical music for the Christmas season. These are not Christmas pop songs or carols dressed up in a classical veneer, but actual compositions by actual wide variety of composers. Most of the pieces would blend into a Christmas recital, which is exactly why...

    I bought this collection. I have several students who do not celebrate Christmas at home, but would still want to participate at our Winter recital.I would heartily recommend this book to anyone looking for something to play around the holidays that isn't just another arrangement of Jingle Bells.

    Killeen, Tx.
    Difficulty Level:
  • December 11, 2015 Okay

    1 or 2 of the pieces are sophisticated enough to be used as a solo. However, most of the pieces, although written by classical composers sound like they belong in a children's piano recital or play.Possibly a good book for a child taking piano.
