All nine Piano Concertos are transcribed here allowing solo pianists to enjoy playing these fantastically fun compositions.

The accompanying download card features specially-mixed orchestral accompaniment tracks for you to play along with. One is a classical track while the other is in a rock style, so you can choose which one to play along with, or just try both! These tracks are very simple to download to your computer and you'll have great fun learning the scores as well as putting your own spin on them.

The Piano Concertos I-IX were produced in direct collaboration with Robert Wells himself, who has written an extensive introduction to the songbook, detailing his inspiration, compositional process and some invaluable performance tips. Each Concerto also comes with a short introduction written by Wells, in which he describes how the idea for that particular track came about, or how the particular style developed. As explained in the songbook, the note-for-note transcriptions will allow you to play the tunes exactly as Wells composed them, whereas improvisation and creativity is encouraged, with chord symbols included to aid this.
