Rob Hall’s Eight Escapes For Piano have enjoyed wide success since their publication in 2015. This follow on collection contains another 11 pieces, covering a wide range of themes and moods and boasting eclectic influences. While Eight Escapes For Piano was created for pianists at Grade 5-7, this book is suitable for players at Grades 3-5.
The contemporary pieces in Eleven More Escapes For Piano adopt a variety of stylistic colours and approaches, from the playful opener Twitter Feed, which depicts birds jostling for space at a feeding frenzy, to the evocative closing ballad Patience.
Once again, the pieces in this collection are inspired by the composer’s international travels. Pianists will visit North America in Elk Dance, the shores of Kerala, India in Shifting Sands and even outer space in the abstract pieces White Dwarf I and II. Atlantic Coast Express takes players on a journey along the route of the old "ACE", which ran between ran the route between London and the coastal resorts of North Devon, and Cornwall, while Blues For Mrs Sippi follows the great river as it lumbers its way through Memphis, Tennessee to the Gulf of Mexico.
The pieces in Eleven More Escapes For Piano a joy to learn and play – this collection offers hours of fun.
