I bought the Art of Piano for the song Incantation. I was thrilled to spend time practicing it. It also has several other excellent songs. I really enjoy The Messenger, and Camille. The songs are not difficult to play notes wise, but the rhythm patterns still make it quite a bit of fun! Would 10/10 recommend!
This book has so much fun music! The pieces are well written and the rhythms are catchy and easy to put together.
A variety of beautiful pieces to play and later teach to future pianists in SA and the UK.I also share the pieces with friends and colleagues as it is futuristic and post modern.
This album/book is a perfect example of a neo-classic genre. Actually it made me excercise much more, because I wasn't able to play nothing of that at once. It took me weeks before I could play some, and that's great! It means that it's not just an entertainment or something "just for fun", it's a goal you want to achieve very much. The pieces sound so great that you don't notice hours pf practice passing. My favourites are Resurgam, The Letter, Incantaion. Though each of them is awesome.
I like having these technical exercises to go through and being able to come out of there with good pieces I can play for various audiences. I am always impressed at the speed these pieces are written and delivered.
Keep up the good work David!
