Escape to a world of jigs, sweeping mountains, winding roads and magical Kingdoms as “Belfast Heart” transports you to some of the stunning scenery of County Down and to the city where people are famous for being friendly and great ‘craic!
Traditional Northern Irish songs reimagined alongside original solos for piano, inspired by Belfast and parts of County Down, NI.
"Belfast Heart is a great combination of arrangements and original material. Darren Day's unique yet accessible composition style makes this a lovely piano book should you want to play casually, become imbued in a more traditional Irish idiom or challenge yourself with the more difficult arrangements."
"Super-varied piano pieces evoking our beautiful landscapes. They also convey the heartfelt pride Darren conveys when he references Belfast rising from The Troubles. I love the rhythms, harmonies, melodies etc which all have an ‘irishy’ feel and the harp-like accompanying lines."
"These piano pieces are beautiful and so uplifting. Perfectly written to feel natural under the fingers for pianists but challenging enough to make them fun to learn. I also think they would be so appreciated by a Northern Irish audience-there's something very nostalgic and comforting in them. I would highly recommend this book for any pianist looking for something new and engaging to play."
