The Girona Suite, June Armstrong, Eight Evocations for Piano 9790900223159

The pieces are grade 5 - 7 standard

Written in recognition of the lives lost when the Girona, a galleass survivor from the Armada, was shipwrecked off Lacada Point at the Giant's Causeway. The music of The Girona Siuite is a rich mixture of period dances of the day, Spanish resonance and emotional intensity. The whole suite is interconnected, both by key and thematic material.

June Armstrong writes finely crafted original piano music specifically designed as teaching material to promote technical development, to facilitate high levels of interpretation and to engage the imagination. 

All the songs have evocative and atmospheric titles and themes.
