The Three Pastiche Pieces were written for a young pupil. Composed in a tuneful and light style they pay their musical respects to the early jazz era. The opening tune, an elegant cakewalk is followed by a melancholy sweet ballad and the set concludes with a jaunty upbeat number suggestive of a jam session. Two of the compositions 'Blue Lullaby' and 'The Jazzie Knumber' have been selected by the ABRSM as Violin Grade 2 List C alternative pieces 2005-2008. Reviewed by Glasgow Centre of ESTA Scotland: We gave all three pieces in the volume the thumbs up. This is well-written teaching material reminiscent of the Rolland repertoire, where simple playing techniques are used to give exciting music to beginner players. The jazz idiom gives this music more appeal to today's young players.
