• Joy to the World (Advanced Piano Solo)


    This joyful arrangement is filled with excitement and energy. Full chords, bold octaves, exuberant dynamics, unique chord choices, and a plethora of musical transitions give this vivacious melody even more life. The brilliance of Handel and Mason is meshed with Tchaikovsky as his famous Nutcracker Russian Dance sneaks in to inspire each key change. With a quick tempo, lively rhythms, and 5 key signatures to cover, this arrangement is an incredible Christmas showcase solo for a religious or holiday performance.

    Please note: Sostenuto pedal is recommended (in addition to sustain pedal) for the final 4 measures.

  • Jupiter (The Planets)


    From a young age I was moved by this beautiful theme from Gustav Holst’s The Planets Suite. While much of the “Jupiter” movement is fast and lively, the theme arranged here carries a certain grandeur that is perfectly befitting the majesty of this ruling planet. This arrangement is in the original key of E-flat Major and begins with single-note melody supported by simple close range harmony, which gradually expands in breadth and harmony to full fortissimo chords. Beautiful soaring melodic lines accompanied by supportive bass harmonies make this a strong selection for an intermediate piano solo, perfect for a recital piece.
