Good Times Past comprises a series of nine short and contrasting piano pieces, in a light, yet essentially modern idiom. Glancing affectionately back in time, to an era of traditional pastimes and board games, these pieces where published on the occasion of Spartan's 25th birthday, and are musically related to a set of flute duets written in 1982, which became "Tricks and Games" - Spartan's first published book.
Nine easy pieces, including:- Chinese Chequers, Draughts, Cowboys, American Indians, Ragtime etc. - each presents a different challenge, yet with the emphasis on fun.
Ragtime was selected to be published in Pianist Magazine, March 2015.
