“Challenging but so worth it!”
Each of these fifteen pieces has been written by my great friend Hilary Taggart with some technical difficulty in mind. And I do mean difficulty - this is not a book for the faint-hearted. For example, Carnival is for octaves but also alternates between 2/4 and 3/8 and reaches 6 sharps. Flutter and Fly is a very fast study in thirds requiring great third octave dexterity. Habanera (high note subtlety) is just very taxing. All in all, a very stimulating alternative to the usual study fare and I shall just have to keep practicing if I am to do them any justice!
