Piano Duet (1 Piano, 4 Hands)
The opening fanfare of this duet leads to a true celebration. This introduction features broken and blocked chords that are later used in the A theme of the A-B-A form. Written in C major and 4/4 meter, both primo and secondo are equal in difficulty and trade the melody back and forth. The vibrant rhythm and lively tempo create an upbeat and exciting piece that is perfect as an opening number for a recital or monster concert. A Federation Festivals 2014-2016 selection.
