Greaves: More Swinging Rhymes (Twelve Pieces in Popular Styles)9781854728586
The ABRSM 'Easier Piano Pieces' series features pieces chosen for their comparative lack of technical difficulty, therefore providing an excellent introduction to the music of great composers throughout history.
A second collection by Terry Greaves transforms twelve further nursery tunes by arranging them in a variety of popular styles. Old King Cole gets merry and groovy, the Dame bakes her pies to a gentle bossa rhythm, while the black sheep turn blue and bleat a languorous jazz waltz. This truly is excellent material to unwind to and enjoy.
