Pop Hits in a Classical Style for Piano Solo
By Hal Leonard
What would composers such as Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, or Rachmaninoff have done if they had arranged “Dust in the Wind” for solo piano? Would Bach have penned a prelude or minuet? Would Chopin have crafted a nocturne or mazurka? What about Mozart, Tchaikovsky, or Bartok? Here are 16 pop songs, arranged for piano solo, as if covered by the likes of these music giants. The focus is on classic accompaniment styles, devices, figurations and forms, the compositional hallmarks of centuries of great music. Songs include: All of Me • Before He Cheats • Call Me Maybe • Despacito • Rolling in the Deep • Shake It Off • Stacy's Mom • Uptown Funk • and more.
