From PERSUASION by Jeremy Sams
Theme
Tristesse
Italian Aria

I purchased this book without really knowing which music was included, but I definitely wanted the Sense & Sensibility pieces. I really enjoy all of them, especially the pieces from Persuasion. Funny, but that soundtrack never stood out to me when I watched this film. I really wouldn't have thought those pieces would be my favorite. Italian Aria, though, is gorgeous and, though simple, even my 11 year old son came over to the piano when I was playing and exclaimed how pretty the music was! The pieces range from cheerful and upbeat to haunting and sad. Additionally, some sound as if they were written during the baroque period, and some sound as if they were written during the Romantic period. A real variety of music is presented here.

I am thoroughly enjoying this book. The transcriptions are really for beginners to intermediate level players. The easier pieces, though, are not "EASY PIANO". It's just easier because the tempo is simple and there are only a couple of sharps or flats at one time. There is nothing too difficult here, but they still sound wonderful.

This is a nice book with some lovely pieces. There are no lyrics though. I was hoping it would be the sort of music Jane Austen might have played, ie parlour music, but its just tunes from the films. The pieces are pretty easy (grade 2/3)

I'm really pleased with this book. I've started playing the piano again after a 35 year break, and I wanted something easyish to play that didn't resemble the exam pieces I played as a child. The arrangements in this book are well done. Some of the pieces are more difficult than others, and there's still a couple that I haven't tackled yet, but the ones that I can play sound quite impressive, and I've got the more challenging ones to look forward to as I improve (hopefully!).
If you like the music from the various films and TV series that these pieces come from I think you'll enjoy this book.

Have you read the books and loved the films!
The tunes in this lovely collection are familiar and playable if you are grade 4 - 5.
What a bargain price too.
I highly recommend this book.
