Miles Krassen’s O’Neill’s
When I began to play Irish music more seriously I bought a copy of Krassen’s version of O’Neill’s 1001, mistaking it for the original. Intimidated by the notation (I was not good at reading in those days), I put it to one side and got on with learning some tunes by ear and from simpler collections.
Nine years on I’ve revisited Krassen and see it in a new light - as a good guide to where to place ornaments and how (if you like Sligo style) to play them.
Does anyone out there have a view on Krassen’s interpretation of the music?
