Review by Kathy Parsons
Laura Sullivan’s Piano Sheet Music Collection is a compilation of fifteen pieces from four of her CDs, transcribed by the artist herself. Most of the pieces are intermediate to an upper intermediate level, and all are fun to play. Many have running eighth notes in the left hand, which makes the timing easier, and most are in easier key signatures. Only one of the pieces is from Laura’s “Piano Solos” album, which is a little surprising, and “Hope For The Sun” also appears on “Pianoscapes” as “Hope For the Trees.” Including that one, there are five pieces from “Pianoscapes For the Trails of North America,” six from “Mystical America,” and four from “Feast of Joy and Love.” There are some notation problems and mistakes - especially in some of the earlier pieces - but nothing that would prevent the player from being able to master them. I’ve been enjoying playing all fifteen of the pieces, but a couple of favorites as “Pachelbel for the Potomac” (a variation on Canon in D), “Pictograph Cave,” “Sedona,” and “Morning In the Meadow.” This is a really nice collection, and it’s available in book form or download from www.lulu.com and amazon.com. Recommended!
