Smooth Classics for Piano Solo

The selection of music within this songbook is taken from ‘Smooth Classics – The Ultimate Collection’ album, Classic FM’s superb collection of the most relaxing and indulgent classical tracks, on 3 CDs.

I think it’s fantastic to have some of these hits from one of our most loved shows gathered together for people to enjoy and play themselves, carefully arranged for easy to intermediate level. In particular I love Debussy’s ‘Clair de Lune’, and the first movement from Beethoven’s ‘Moonlight Sonata’. I hope you enjoy attempting to master the pieces within the book as much as I have.
