Madge Notebook A Piano Tribute to the Hunger Games
Folk music from District 12 that is mentioned in The Hunger Games books, including the lullaby Deep in the Meadow, the patriotic Valley Song, the haunting The Hanging Tree, the simply beautiful Toasting, as well as the Wedding Dance. There are also new twists on classics and classic rock that I imagine would still be known in the future, including a Bach/Lennon mash-up Imagine a Prelude, a Beethoven/Led Zeppelin mash-up, Stairway for Elisa, and a new take on the Moonlight Sonata, Over the Moon. The final two pieces are from Madge to Katniss, Friends of a Feather, a duet, and For Rue, a Chopin-inspired waltz based on Rue's "all's well" signal.
