Much easier to play than I imagined - but not too easy all the way.

Langport Somerset GB Amateur musicuan
The composition is captivating and currently poignant due to the recent death of the composer.
I can't get the tune out of my head. Also this piano part is relatively easy to play.
The paper product is not well put together.

Customer Rating Heard 'Farewell to Stromness' played at the Thaxted Festival by Tom Poster. A beautiful piece of music and very accessible for an amateur pianist. Service from Musicroom excellent. The music arrived in perfect condition within 2 days of order.

Customer Rating Very happy with this edition.

Customer Rating The famous "Farewell to Stromness" is a huge hit with teenagers, especially Scottish ones, who really respond to the sinister background which inspired the Revue; it's Grade 4 -ish, with a couple of tricky contrapuntal bars + wide stretches, but easily managed after practice. It makes a good concert piece, the 2 outer sections of great beauty, the middle section threatening then angry, and the ending either serene or sad according to your interpretation. Always a hit with audiences too.
