Something for anyone to get a kick out of!

Cole Porter: The Definitive Songbook - The Platinum Collection presents 50 classic songs by one of America’s foremost songwriters, arranged for Piano and Voice with Guitar chords. All songs have been newly engraved, thoroughly researched and edited to provide the best edition available. The list of songs includes the immortal pieces I Get A Kick Out Of You, I’ve Got You Under My Skin and Let’s Do It (Let’s Fall In Love) popularised by swing legends such as Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra.

Cole Porter was celebrated not only for the craftsmanship and beauty of his music, but for the wit and sophistication of his lyrics, which he wrote himself – a talent that set him apart from other songwriters of the time. Thanks to his early musical training he’d been responsible for six full productions and some 300 songs by the time he finished his education at Yale, at the age of 22. His legacy is an almost unbelievable treasure-house of great songs – witty, catchy, frivolous and deep – they represent the very highest achievement of the songwriter’s art.

This glorious journey through 50 of the best Cole Porter songs will add to any musician’s repertoire and will delight both performers and audiences everywhere.

Musicroom Reviews

Rating Review
Customer Rating Having purchased this product, I was pleased to see that the arrangements had not been "bowdlerised" and were of a sufficient standard to make it a worthwhile addition to the repertoire of any advanced or professional pianist.

The music is clearly set out although the style of binding makes it difficult to "lay-flat". In turn, this makes page turning problematical.

Other than these observations, I recommend this collection to potential purchasers.

Customer Rating This is a good edition but the reviewer above is wrong that it would suit an advanced pianist. This is suitable for intermediate pianist. Musicroom should provide more informative ratings.
