Reviews

(...) His Celtic and More is a lively collection of ten duets encased in a zany and colourful cover, particularly appealing to boys. The pieces are mainly Irish and Scottish, but Igudesman is particularly interested in the diversity of Celtic music and in mixing musical styles, so there are also references to Russian, Eastern European and Bluegrass. (…) I would highly recommend this publication for any student.
