It really is all that. Very inspiring!
Thank you David, for sharing your talent and your passion with the rest of us.
You are such a great artist!
When I first found "Captain Sharpe's Mission" a few years ago, I was enthralled! The fascinating rhythms keep the listener in suspense until the piece's dramatic conclusion. Unfortunately, at the time, the piece was too difficult for me, and I shelved it until I could learn this epic nine-page work.
Now a few years later, I've learned the piece, and I highly recommend it to any advanced pianist who's in for a fun challenge! The staccato repeated notes are tricky, and can only be executed properly with the correct technique (loose, high wrist, firm fingers, and a high thumb) and a piano with a fast action. Regardless of the tricky bits, this piece is an absolute joy to play. Even after months of practice, I'm not tired of this piece--which is a rarity!
As with all of David's scores, the music is clear and easy to read---whether it's on paper or on an iPad. That is a big help when learning any piece.
I really haven't had the chance to read the book, as yet. However, from glancing through it as it printed... it looks very typical of the usual perfection in any of David's works...music or otherwise. I know it's a five-star just by glancing through it.
I checked other versions in many websites, and there is no comparision on the emotion, the dynamics and precision of David's version. amazing job!
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.
Mesmerising arrangement that keeps one very motivated to learn and practice. Only started with Bell Carol 2.0 a few days ago. Hopefully can play for friends by year end as part of Christmas cheer. Thanks David for such a challenging, unique and captivating piano arrangement.
I encourage all pianists to get the sheet music of A Day With You. Il's a great piece serene, friendly and very pleasant to play. It's a bliss to perform and to hear... People will love it ! Succès garanti !
