Puffin Island

Eleven Miniatures for Piano - UK Grades 1-3

The Puffin Island of the title is Rathlin Island off the north coast of Antrim, where puffins come to breed.  These eleven descriptive pieces capture the variety and essence of the island and its wildlife.

 REVIEW - Piano Professional

The jaunt begins with an exhilarating ride on the ferry, the first views through the Morning Mist, and ends peacefully with Sunset over Donegal.  The magical tour of Rathlin includes glimpses of gannets, hares, seals, puffins, sea anemones and curlews, all deftly painted with musical sounds.  There is not one wasted note. Hare Running would bring a smile to anyone's face, and Waves on the Sand uses a similar harmony throughout, but in novel ways. Nancy Litten - ABRSM Examiner
