Original creations for the contemporary pianist by Rob Hall.
EIGHT ESCAPES for Piano is a fresh, engaging set of contemporary pieces suitable for pianists of Grades 5-7 who enjoy jazz-influenced music without improvisation.
This first collection by Rob Hall for Spartan Press provides a wide range of moods and challenges from the cascading opener Lifts, Escalators and Extreme Travelators, depicting a bustling Hong Kong, through the Edinburgh festival-funk of Cafe Graffiti and the whirling folk-infused Pied Piper, to an emotive epilogue Swan Song.
With its international theme, Eight Escapes will have wide appeal to advancing (or advanced) pianists and students alike.
Audio tracks of 3 of the pieces Hinterland, Pied Piper and Rondeau, arranged for saxophone and piano. See link above.
