This is fourth in a series of piano arrangements of my favourite melodies. Bernard Loffet dedicated his life to the traditional music and dance of Brittany. He was an incredible man of many talents, instrument maker, sound engineer, musician, dancer, and composer of many beautiful tunes. I first heard this piece when it was played as a memorial to him at a French bal shortly after his sudden death in 2018.
I asked his widow, Cathy, and daughters for permission to make this arrangement and they gave me their blessing. When Cathy heard it, she said: “I like Valse à Mary played like this, very much, and I think Bernard would have liked it too”.
This piece can be played by students who have reached Grade 3 or above. Listen to/watch the arrangement here: http://bit.ly/Annette004
