Description

“How to make friends at the keyboard” might be the series title for Mike Cornick’s albums for 5 or 6 hands at one piano!

In this latest volume, “4 Afro-Caribbean Pieces for 6 hands”, Mike offers three traditional pieces, “Jamaica Farewell”, “Mary Anne” and “Yellow Bird”, plus a piece of his own which perfectly captures the stylistic mannerisms of this very musical region. Mike has suggested fingerings to help avoid the collisions inevitable with three players at one keyboard but he adds “it’s all part of the fun”! The second and terzo parts can be downloaded (free of charge) from the publisher’s website to aid private practice.

These multi-hand pieces make great concert pieces, especially as encores and you could also try: “5 Pieces for 5 Left Hands” (UE21711) or “4 Afro-Caribbean Songs for 5 Right Hands” (UE21649) as well as several other volumes for the more conventional six hands.

Reviews

All four of these pieces benefits from a catchy melody, sunny harmonies and infectious rhythms – they are great fun, and sure to please those who enjoy these styles of music. The book presents the pieces in full score format, also including a code with which the purchaser can freely download individual parts for all four pieces. This is in my opinion a huge bonus, and will be for many the preferred option. (…) With three players in the score, and two systems per page, the music could easily feel crowded – it’s a testament to Universal Edition’s keen attention to the engraving that it never does so, always feeling clear, clean and spacious. Fingering here is more generous too, as befits the easier level of these pieces.
