Description

Martin Tourish is an accordion specialist from Ireland whose own history is steeped in the tradition of Celtic Music. In his ground-breaking publication “CELTIC”, he explores, in arrangements for solo, standard-bass accordion, music from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall and Brittany.
He examines “styles within styles”, offering thirty easy to intermediate grade pieces as well as a guide to performing practice in a genre where the musical notation is often considered by performers to be merely “skeletal”. 

He hopes that this book will also be an invitation to seek out recordings, and to visit the places and peoples evoked by this music.

Reviews

(…) wenige Blicke ins Buch reichen, um zu sehen, mit welcher Kenntnis und liebevollen Sorgfalt Tourish diese Sammlung editiert hat. (…) Beim Durchblättern stoße ich auf eine Reihe von Stücken, die wirklich leicht einzuüben sind. Das ist gut für die Praxis des Lehrers, der immer wieder nach schönem, aber angenehm spielbarem Material für seine Schüler sucht. (…) Eine mit liebevollem Herzen und mit kundiger Hand gepackte musikalische Schatzkiste!
