From the Publisher

Explore the rich musical landscape of the East as each Prelude weaves together native themes from countries including China, India, Japan, Korea, and Thailand with Christopher Norton’s characteristically innovative popular music styles. Ideal for intermediate to advanced-level keyboard players, these pieces are perfect for the concert platform, whilst providing excellent teaching material. An accompanying CD puts each Prelude on the map with stylish demonstration performances by Iain Farrington. EASTERN PRELUDES COLLECTION - press reviews "Norton has a knack of writing in a distinctive style and attractive harmonic language, and students will surely find it difficult to resist the lyricism of Arirang (from Korea) or the dynamism of Ya, Ya, Maya, Ya (from India). The enclosed CD features exemplary performances by Iain Farrington." - PIANIST MAGAZINE "Ideal for intermediate to advanced-level keyboard players, these pieces are perfect for the concert platform, as well as providing excellent teaching material... Christopher Norton proves again with ‘Eastern Preludes Collection’ why it is that he is so widely regarded as one of the world’s leading educational composers. The quality and variety here is simply outstanding." - PIANODAO.COM
