The new Fire & Water Piano Sheet Music Book features original arrangements of works by Rachmaninov, Saint-Saëns, De Falla and a new composition by “wunderkind pianist” Ji Liu. Suitable for intermediate to advanced pianists, this stunning collection of solo piano pieces come together to beautifully illustrate fire and water. Inspired by the ancient Chinese five-element theory of Wu-Xing, fire and water was previously explored in Ji Liu’s well-received 2018 album. Now, when peace and unity are in dire need Ji Liu has revisited, dwelled and expanded on these vital elements in this must-have music book.
