    The piano pieces in this book are arrangements of Traditional Chinese folk melodies. One of the outstanding features is that the region of origin is noted for each piece. These are mostly low intermediate level pieces, about 75% of them have a misty, romantic quality. There are a few faster...

    , and more challenging pieces, esp. toward the end. The CD of the pieces is beautifully performed, a great resource for study and interpretation (played by the arranger/composer), and just lovely to listen to. These works very reminiscent of Chopin & Schubert's easier works. Most of these works are suitable for harp as well.
