        After 35 years away from the keyboard, I’m having to learn from scratch. (No, it isn’t like riding a bicycle) but the whole experience is fabulous. “Farewell to Stromness” is deceptively simple but a wonderful challenge - in other words, it’s tricky. It’s wonderful though to gradually hear this beautiful melody coming through. The sheet music is very clear and well printed with a smart red cover and two lovely pieces for the price of one. Impressive and good value.
        About the sheet music? Nothing, but I’m not too happy with my rusty fingers and forgotten notation.

        Very well notated out music - grade 5 or 6 level. Excellent as it is difficult to find publications of English contemporary composers

        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.
