Available for the first time a selection of pieces from the microjazz collection 1-3 by the renowned composer of the Microjazz series, Christopher Norton. Arranged for lever harp by world-famous Welsh harpist Elinor Bennett and Scottish clarsach players Elinor Evans and Fiona Rutherford.
Christopher Norton is well-known throughout the world for his compositions for piano, particularly the Microjazz series, published by Boosey & Hawkes, and Connections for Piano, published by 80 Days Publishing. His music is popular with piano students as well as professional performers, because he writes well for the piano, has a subtle blend of jazz, pop and classical influences and has a distinctive style of writing that appeals to a wide range of audiences.
The composer writes:
The Microjazz Collection books have for many years been a favourite with teachers because they contain such a variety of styles, some specific, some quirky combinations of the composer’s own devising. The melodies are attractive and sometimes unpredictable, with modal and pentatonic elements often featured. These arrangements from the Microjazz Collection for lever harp will bring these stimulating pieces to a whole new audience.
