Piano Duet (1 Piano, 4 Hands)
Latin Rhythms will have audience members dancing in the aisles as students play this fun duet! Perfectly capturing the feel of the greatest Latin dances, this piece dramatically alternates between G major and G minor. The colorful melody, which sings out above syncopated rhythm in 4/4, alternates between parts. Students should take great care to perfect the challenging rhythmic lines to give the piece its proper mood and flair. Performers should also accentuate the articulations for extra effect. Put on your dancing shoes, and take a musical journey to Latin America!
