Now you can enjoy the songs from the award-winning musical The Last Five Years, by Jason Robert Brown. This groundbreaking, intimate one-act musical chronicles the story of a failed marriage, through both partners' eyes, crossing through time and space to draw the audience in.
Winner, Drama Desk Award for Best Music and Lyrics.
I've been fortunate enough to play this stuff on stage in West End theatres in the popular Notes From New York series. JRB really is one of the flag bearers for new, energetic, beautiful contemporary musical theatre. If you're a singer you'll love singing it, if you're a pianist it's even harder, if like me you're both then you're onto a winner here. I love this score - move over Lloyd Webber - this is so much better!

A great selection from a great musical. The songs in this book are of the sort that pull you into the lives of these two characters without you realising, and by the time you've played through the songs you never want to leave them! The arrangements are perfect, they make it easy to follow and are of a good standard - not too easy and not too hard (roughly grade 6 mostly I think). It provides chords too, meaning you can play through the songs easily at first and then learn them properly later on.
