“I simply loved this collection. I felt I was opening a treasure chest! The compositions are fresh, pianistic, and sit well under the hands. They are also well thought-out pedagogically providing practice in various techniques and especially interpretation (e.g. The Dreamer). Some of the pieces are sure to be real hits: Rain and Waves is brilliant for the first few piano lessons: a welcome alternative to Chopsticks!”
