Piano Duet (1 Piano, 4 Hands)
Book & CD
Franz Schubert was one of the most prolific composers of ensemble piano music, and the Rondo in A Major, Op. 107, demonstrates his mastery at writing for one piano, four hands. The Rondo was composed in 1828 for the famous Viennese company Artaria. The work is warm and lyrical in contrast to many of Schubert’s other compositions for four hands. Its themes are highly decorative, treated freely, and full of exciting rhythms. Also included is an outstanding CD recording from the Naxos label.
