This charming collection Contemporary Scottish Solos for Piano Books 1, 2 and 3, consists of forty-two brand new and revised arrangements, drawing on traditional Gaelic and Scottish melodies; beautifully written for piano in Stephen J. Wood's distinctive and unique style.
Each book contains fourteen pieces in a balanced mix of well-known jigs, reels, airs, marches and strathspeys. Timeless melodies such as the haunting An Ataireachd Ard, Nan Tigheadh Tu Idir, and Skye Boat Song, together with more popular classics like Amazing Grace and Auld Lang Syne, are all innovatively arranged with a fusion of jazz and contemporary classical styles.
