From the Publisher'Microballads' is the latest piano title from the hugely successful Chris Norton and features 20 new works with an accompanying CD containing backing tracks and demonstration performances. With themes of love and heartbreak, ballads have always been hugely popular - from the sentimental songs of the 1930s and 40s, ‘doo-wop’ songs from the 1950s, Beatles songs like 'Yesterday' and 'Here, There and Everywhere' to Bryan Adams’ 'Everything I Do'. Chris Norton’s 'Microballads' starts very easy (pre-Grade 1) and gradually becomes more challenging, without ever going much beyond Grade 3 in difficulty. It covers many classic ballad styles - including the ones listed above, but also a gentle bossa nova, a Scottish ballad, a country ballad and some big heart-on-sleeve rock ballads. The backings on the CD provide warm, sympathetic support. Play your heart out!
