Play The Kunz Way: Book 2

Books | Piano

Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
This collection includes Strauss’s Blue Danube, Mendelssohn’s On Wings of Song and Spring Song, Wagner’s O Star of Eve and Delibes's Pas de Fleurs.The Kunz style favoured big, many-layered chords in the right hand with a more rhythmic underpinning in the left. For instance, the Kunz arrangement of Strauss’s Blue Danube transforms a gently-unfolding Orchestral piece into a series of four-note chords, which Kunz himself was able to play with grace and finesse. The arrangements tend to end with the thrill of a rallentando and chord in the upper registers.Pianist Charlie Kunz enjoyed a twenty-year career as a solo pianist touring throughout Britain and appearing on television and radio. He had originally emigrated to the UK after World War I to work in a dance band, but his distinctive and winning style soon led to a solo career performing his own versions of classical favourites.
