These five highly imaginative piano duets are written with the Primo part in the five-finger position plus a Secondo part for a more experienced player. The titles - including ‘Troll Dance’, ‘Sleeping on the Train’ and ‘The Centipede’s New Shoes’ - give pictorial clues to the remarkable sonorities and energy of these pieces. The easiest of the five can be played by a Grade 1 level student. All five pieces will light up the face of any young pianist looking for aural excitement within easily identifiable and conventional tonal systems.
The duets in this volume were written specifically to develop an understanding of more contemporary musical ideas within an approachable context for both students and their teachers.
