“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 Cornick 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.
Cornick 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.
