        I bought this for number 1, Fairwell to Stromness. A lovely haunting piano piece that isn't difficult to play. The edition is clearly set out and easy to read.

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

        Musicroom Reviews

        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.

        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.

        Splendid arrangement for Grade 4 pianists.
