The Nine Glens of Antrim

Nine Pieces for Piano -  UK Grades 2-4 

The Glens of Antrim form a unique area of great tranquillity and breath-taking scenery, with which I have been familiar from childhood and also as a favourite weekend retreat in later years.

REVIEW - Piano Professional

This effective collection depicts the spectacular scenery and folklore of each of the glens, with stories and history to match.  They are enjoyable to hear and to play, using plenty of pedal and pentatonic patterns.  Effects, particularly of water and bird song are most evocative and the music is not difficult to play once it is known.  While dexterity is needed for the faster pieces, some are refreshingly simple.
