Very First Concert Pieces for Piano - UK Pre Grade 1 to Grade 1

This vibrant collection contains 13 imaginative pieces, each inspired by a different colour.  The pieces are almost entirely in five finger position.  Some contain simple hand position changes.

REVIEW - Piano Professional

Cameos, such as Pillar Box Red, Dusty Blue and Emerald Green, actually 'sound' like their colours. Armstrong is endlessly imaginative despite the simple hand positions.  The style is a mixture of diatonic, whole tone, Celtic minimalist, jazz and impressionist.  Nothing jars and all seems inevitable an yet fresh.  Each one is a gem.  Short paragraphs on the pieces introduce concept like suspensions, counterpoint, triads and note clusters in a disarmingly natural way.   Nancy Litten - ABRSM Examiner
