Though the selection of songs is extremely strong, and it notably gathers the majority of the pieces originally performed on the piano, there are naturally going to be some notable omissions. Personally I would've hoped to have seen arrangements of tracks like the lovely "Gaeta's Lament", but it's my fervent hope we'll see a Volume Two sometime down the road. Below is the complete list of the arrangements, followed by the season soundtrack it appears on, and concluding with the episode the track originally appeared in.
01) ALLEGRO - Season 2, Track 5 ["Home, Part I"]
02) APOCALYPSE - The Plan, Track 1, 6, 7 ["The Plan"]
03) BATTLESTAR MUZAKTIKA - Season 1, Track 18 ["Colonial Day"]
04) BATTLESTAR OPERATICA - Season 1, Track 16 ["Tigh Me Up, Tigh Me Down"]
05) BATTLESTAR SONATICA - Season 3, Track 11 ["Torn"]
06) DREILIDE THRACE SONATA NO.Read more ›
With the background out of the way, I'll continue with my review. Many of the tunes included in this collection were not originally written for piano solo, which is why it blew me away at the quality of the arrangements for tunes such as "Roslin and Adama", "Violence and Variations", and "Wander My Friends". The notes make sense and are perfect for the piano's register as an instrument, and the choice of tunes is excellent in terms of variety. As a pianist, I can sight read through all of the book at a slow pace, but the difficulty is tremendous for beginners, which is why I would caution those just learning to play. Thankfully, the composer realized this, and included two simplified tunes for those individuals who may otherwise have trouble. The music selections I played through range from beautiful and enveloping melodies to dark and violent fortes.Read more ›
The book's not really for beginners, but with enough practice and dedication (and with this kind of music, why would you not have the dedication?), it's perfectly tameable. I wish I had more hands though, but then again, I'm no musical genius. So yeah, buy this work and enjoy bringing BSG to life in your house (or wherever you play piano).

What can I say, it is such an amazing Piano music book. I fell in love with the music since the first episode of the TV show I watched, and I am a big time fan of the TV series and... Read morePublished 9 months ago by Spicy Pepper
Great little songbook for piano players who loved the music of the Battlestar Galactica reboot. I got it as an early birthday present for my younger brother, and he loves it.Published 14 months ago by Ryan E. Gonzales
Love playing this music. I have about 9 months of self taught piano and I am able to learn the pieces, slowly but surely. I would say these pieces are a little above intermediate. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Kevin
